Camera’s eye on Marietta College baseball

From Evan Bevins at The Marietta Times on August 31, 2012, on SABR member Gary Caruso:

Two Marietta College alums are teaming up to tell the world what they consider one of the best-kept secrets in sports – the story of the Pioneer baseball team’s decades of dominance.

“You leave that community and everybody’s like ‘What … are you talking about’ or they think you’re talking about Marietta, Ga.,” said Mike Eisenberg, who helped the Pioneers to their fourth national championship in 2006 and played professionally. “I would love to change that landscape and let Marietta College be part of the zeitgeist.”

Eisenberg, who graduated in 2009 then attended film school and now lives in Chicago, is co-directing a documentary entitled “The ‘Etta Express” with Gary Caruso, a sports journalist, author and former MC baseball assistant coach. The film will follow the current team through their preparations for and play during the 2013 season while looking at the history of the program.
