GP-DVD COVER 8/09 GHOST PLAYER: Relive The Magic, The Team. The Times. The History - Home Edition DVD Movie. ISBN: 978-0-9840878-1-5

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.

GHOST PLAYER: RELIVE THE MAGIC

THE TEAM. THE TIMES. THE HISTORY.

Hometown heros and MLB Hall of Famers grace the pages of this retrospective on Ghost Player baseball.

They traveled the world and shared the magic of baseball with the Japanese people and US military personal and families in Asia, Europe and North America.

Many of the stories are those of the players but included are stories from fans from as far away as Alaska and Japan. Also included is a piece from Rob Edelman, author of Great Baseball Films and Baseball on the Web. Other members of the Society of American Baseball Researcher Association (SABR) are participating as well.
