Episode 25, Part 2: Josh Keppel's Documentary About the Barry Bonds Home Run Ball (Part of Our SF Giants at 60 Series)
Film photography by Michelle Kilfeather
Ed. note: This podcast is the first of a series of podcasts we'll do all throughout the Major League Baseball season to celebrate the Giants' 60th year in the San Francisco.
In Part 1, Josh talked about being there to shoot Barry Bonds's record-setting 73rd home of the 2001 baseball season. The baseball landed in the stands mere feet from where Josh and his camera were. And so he inadvertently captured what turned out to be a contentious event. Two fans argued over which one of them the home-run ball belonged to, ending up going to court over the matter.
In this episode, Josh will talk about that court case and the documentary that he helped make about the whole thing.
We recorded this podcast in March 2018 at the Embarcadero Center Cinema lounge.
