The "Pelotero" Comes to New Britain
Ballplayer: Pelotero is a film about the baseball pipeline between the Dominican Republic and Major League Baseball. One of the characters in the movie was Miguel Sano - a third baseman now in the Minnesota Twins organization.
Back in March, we spoke with one of the filmmaker’s behind Ballplayer: Pelotero, Jon Paley about their next project.
“We realized that this wasn’t so much an ending for the film as it was a beginning for Miguel," said Paley. "So we never really stopped rolling and for three years now, we’ve been filming a sequel about Miguel’s challenges of rising through the minor leagues.”
So they’re working on a sequel to Ballplayer: Pelotero.
Miguel Sano’s rise through the minor leagues has now brought him to New Britain, Connecticut. Earlier this week, he got called up to the New Britain Rock Cats, the AA-affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.
