Bigger Than Life

Players to get very big without chemicals:

    Major League Baseball, Imax and producer Mandalay Entertainment are on the team for “Baseball: The Global Game,” the first giant screen film about the national pastime.

    The 45-minute picture chronicles the history of the game, focusing on the cross-cultural significance of baseball in Japan, Latin America and the U.S.. It traces the origins of many of today’s baseball heroes and explores the emergence of players from around the world.

    “Baseball” will be produced in Imax’s 15/70 format and distributed for exhibition exclusively in Imax theaters.

    “The globalization of Major League Baseball continues with more and more of our players and fans coming from outside the United States,” said Tim Brosnan, exec VP of business for Major League Baseball. “This unique venture will not only show the historic significance of baseball, it will show how the game transcends cultural differences.”
