Holleman: St. Louis Browns documentary hits TV next month

From Joe Holleman at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on February 22, 2018:

Attention, Hamm and baseball fans.

“The St. Louis Browns: The Team Baseball Forgot” — a documentary based on a book written about STL’s only American league team — will premiere at 8 p.m. March 8 on KETC (Channel 9).

The film is narrated by none other than STL’s No. 1 celeb, Jon Hamm, who has remained a familiar face at Cardinals baseball games since reaching stardom.

The book, “The St. Louis Browns: The Story of a Beloved Team, was written by Bill Borst, Bill Rogers and Ed Wheatley. All three are members of the St. Louis Browns Historical Society.

Wheatley, who provided numerous items of memorabilia for the documentary, said the film was shot in a Ken Burns-style. He noted that some scenes were shot at GCS Ballpark in Sauget, home of the minor-league Gateway Grizzlies.
