Back in December, I posted some information here about a documentary called "Boys of Summer". This movie chronicles a 20,000 plus mile journey that Robert Cochrane made with his father, Dan Cochrane in the summer of 2004. The father and son traveled to, and saw a baseball game in all 30 Major League parks. The purpose of the documentary is to spread awareness about and raise money to fund research to combat Parkinson's Disease, an illness with which Dan Cochrane has been diagnosed.
I gave the video to my parents as a Christmas present. (They like baseball almost as much as I do) The baseball aspect of the movie was interesting, but even more intriguing was the view it gives of life with Parkinson's Disease. My mom especially liked this aspect as she gives regular care to my Grandma, who is a Pakinsonian.
Copies of the DVD can be purchased here for $25.
A CORRECTION: My previous post about this documentary indicated that all proceeds from this movie would go the Michael J. Fox Foundation. After reexamining the notes for the movie, I see that "A minimum of 50% of the proceeds from Robert's sale of this film will be donated to the Michael J. Fox Foundation."
