it on the big screen is amazing, said Chambers following Curtain Call debut. you watching it in an edit suite, it just not the same it a different appreciation. Obviously I seen the film I watched it in my living room, I watched it in my edit suite, I watched it in many places, but watching it in a theatre on the big screen with people laughing and clapping, it special. It amazing. film chronicles the struggles of the Tigers franchise in Glens Falls, New York during the late Nike Air Max 90 Independence Day Blue 1980s and how a group from London lobbied the organization and Eastern League to set up shop in Canada. The Tigers weren initially interested, but eventually warmed up to the idea of having their prized prospects competing just two hours away.
They came to witness Curtain Call: The Tale of London Tigers, a 40 minute documentary put together by London native and current TSN/CTV employee Craig Chambers. A fan of the team growing up, Chambers travelled across North America compiling interviews and footage in hopes of debuting the film 20 years after the club held its final game at Labatt Park.
was great, we were traveling around the States, traveling around Florida, going to interview all these old players, Chambers began. a lot of stuff that he remembers a lot better than I do, so there was a lot of times he was jumping in and helping me with questions and helping with the process. It great to be there Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Moire Navy Blue
of negative stuff that went on when we left which I didn like and this kind of made it all worth while. pure baseball form, the pursuit of the film which Chambers funded largely on his own was a family affair. Not only did the filmmaker have his father Rob riding shotgun during the creative process, he was a definitive source on all things Tigers.

Unfortunately for Chambers and all London supporters, the euphoria wouldn last forever. Attendance dipped following the league championship and eventually the club was shipped Nike Air Max 90 Grey Black Red

meant a lot, it really did and it was positive, he said of the film. like to hear that, because there was a lot Nike Air Max 90 Phantom White
with your dad, but it great to have him as an assistant who basically knew more about the team than I did.
London won the Eastern League pennant in 1990, the team defining moment.
While future Major Leaguers like Rusty Meacham and Travis Fryman were starring in London uniforms, prodigies like Deion Sanders came through town with opposing rosters.
baseball fan in the world knows Chris Chambliss, Gilson said of the man that hit the game winning home run to lead the Yankees past Kansas City in the 1976 American League Championship Series. a wonderful, wonderful man and him and I have become good friends. When I found out we were getting Chris, it made it all real. much as the Tigers were a hit inside the park, they developed a cult following beyond it as well. Local musician Jim Chapman composed "Tear 'Em Up Tigers" early in the organization existence, thinking the catchy ditty would be played only during games. It wasn long until the song, and it video, became popular around the league by both players and fans alike.
The downtown theatre became a destination for fans, former players and executives of the London Tigers, the defunct double A affiliate of Detroit Major League Baseball franchise that called the Forest City home from 1989 1993.
going to be honest with you, I got choked up, said Tigers general manager Bob Gilson moments after the premier of the film. were a lot of guys I saw interviewed (in the film) that I haven seen since we won. The scary part is in minor league baseball after that championship game, the next day they gone the players are gone. It was a great experience and I thought it was a great show. was especially fond of the film portrayal of Chris Chambliss, the Tigers first manager and star that would help put the team on the map.
Still, Gilson looks back on the era with fond memories.
It took over four years to finish, but in reality the project was two decades in the making.
