Former Major League Baseball player and manager Pete Rose, also known as "Charlie Hustle", is pictured in the movie poster to the right of Actor/songwriter/ musician Rob Cuniffe.
One of the great things about making films is the way filmmaking is so interconnected. Rob Cuniffe is a Dubuque native who sang in the high school choir with the children of Ghost Player's newsletter editor. After college, Cunliffe donned the White Sox stripes to help promote the documentary "Ghost Player: Relive the Magic" when it screened during the LA All-Sports Film Festival.
This fall, Rose will play ball at the Field of Dreams as part of the "Team of Dreams" event for Mystique Casino and MAB-Celebrity Services on Saturday, September 14. This landmark event will feature 13 of the greatest baseball players of all time. They'll play a historical game at the Field of Dreams on Saturday the 14 and then sign autographs and more back at Mystique. Check out the others in the line-up! Reggie Jackson, Johnny Bench, Field of Dreams Movie Site owner Wade Boggs, Jim Rice, Frank Thomas, Jim Palmer, Rod Carew, Bruce Sutter, Carlton Fisk, Ozzie Smith, Dwight Gooden, and Paul Molitor. This is a ticketed event by Mystique. Tickets will be very limited and available shortly on the Mystique website. Watch our page and their site for details. Who knows, maybe we will be able to get Cunliffe to come back and have a catch or play some tunes with Rose and the other Hall of Fame ballplayers.
Recently, Rob Cunliffe was in Dubuque in May celebrating the premieres of the Lake Delhi: We Will Be Back documentary. Rob wrote the documentary's finale song - We Will Be Back and his band Almost Classy has included the song on a special release of their debut self-titled CD, Almost Classy. Congratulations Rob, the song is great and so are the Doc and CD.
And just to take another look at synergy, the award winning Lake Delhi documentary was produced in association with DreamCatcher Productions and Joe Scherrman. Scherrman used the expertise he gained in crafting the documentary about the Ghost Players and provided some of the footage of the catastrophic levee breech, storm and flooding featured in the film.
