Thank all of you for caring about the Ghost Player
project. So many things to be thankful for but I really
want to extend my thank you to the wives, families and
business people that made the Ghost Player
adventures possible, and to Keith, Jackie and their
families for their dreams and hard work. And to all of
you that are reading this, it is a privilege to share
Ghost stories with you.
To all the Ghost, past and future, Happy Thanksgiving
and thank you for all the memories. This has always
been a two part project, 1) the movie and 2) the
preservation and access of the footage. We are
moving along on part 2) the archiving of all the
footage. Hopefully we will have some type of kiosk or
internet searchable site next year.

GHOST PLAYER: Relive The Magic, The Team. The
Times. The History - Home Edition DVD Movie. ISBN:
GHOST PLAYER tells the story of how this zany team
ranging from a farmer to a state representative moved
audiences around the world and changed the players'
lives forever. From Dyersville, Iowa, we follow the
Ghost Players around the world as warm hearted,
comedic ambassadors of the best that the American
Heartland has to offer - baseball, tomfoolery and good
old-fashioned family fun. We see them bring the
comfort that only baseball can give to men and women
stationed in the military in the far-flung corners of the
world. But most of all, we witness how America's
favorite pastime and a Hollywood movie set can give
one group of men from a small Iowa town a second
chance to live the life they've always dreamed.
