The Sully Baseball In Memoriam Video for 2018

THUMBNAIL

It is a Sully Baseball tradition. At the All Star Break, I produce an In Memoriam Video. I honor those members of the baseball family we lost since last year’s All Star Game.

Lots of great figures are included into the video I am releasing here.

I pay tribute to those figures, some of them all time greats, some more obscure, but all contribute to the game.

Here is the video.

Here are the previous In Memoriam Videos.

The original one, produced with Rafael Rivera, in 2014, featuring Tony Gwynn and Ralph Kiner.

The edition for 2015, also produced with Rafael Rivera, honored Ernie Banks and Minnie Minosa among others.

In 2016, I produced the video on my own and saw time to salute legends such as Monte Irvin and Yogi Berra.

And in 2017, I produced the video that gave tribute to Jose Fernandez, Jim Bunning and many more.
