"Boys of Summer" follows my father (who has Parkinson Disease) and I as we road tripped 20,000 miles in two months to see a game at each of the 30 Major League Ballparks. We also visited the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame, the Negro League Museum and the Field of Dreams in Dyersville, Iowa. We interviewed fathers, sons, mothers, daughters and fellow Parkinsonians about baseball, America and life itself. As the trip was completely grassroots, we often relied on the kindness of complete strangers for a place to stay, food and donations to get from park to park.
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this film will go to the Michael J Fox Foundation and the National Parkinson Foundation.
