Eight Men Out and the Baseball Hall of Fame

We just wanted to share a photo taken by some of John’s cousins at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, New York.

Eight Men Out, screenplay written and directed by John and released in 1988, is widely considered to be one of the best sports movies of all time (by ESPN, Empire, and Paste Magazine, to name just a few).   It features an incredible ensemble cast which includes David Strathairn, John Cusack, Charlie Sheen, D.B. Sweeney, Studs Terkel, Christopher Lloyd, and John and Maggie themselves.

If you haven’t seen the film, it’s truly worth a watch.  You can grab your own copy from Powell’s online (click here), or watch the movie on Netflix Watch Instantly (click here).
