Director raising funds to get Bill Lee movie off the ground

Now here's a project that I can support... Director Brett Rapkin is raising funds via to support the production of a feature film on the life of The Spaceman, Bill Lee. Lee of course is one of the most colourful players in MLB history and a wonderful human being. He also became the oldest player in history to win a professional baseball game last season when he won a game for the Brockton Rox of the Can-Am League (the same league that former Seals Jeff Duda and Anthony Pluta currently pitch in).

The Montreal Gazette had a very interesting article on Lee's recent trip to Montreal to search for shooting locations. If you can spare a couple of dollars, click on the link below to add to the film's seed money.
