Before beginning production of the PlayBall! documentary back in 2003, I posted a notice in both the Alameda Times Star and Alameda Journal asking former ARPD players to contact me. The ink on that fishwrap wasn’t dry before my cell phone started to ring.
One of the guys who called was a former Woodstock Seal pitcher by the name of Steve Miller. Not only was Steve a good enough ballplayer to make it in NCAA Div I, he also had some home movies of his days playing in Alameda!
Here’s a still shot from those movies of Steve on the mound for Woodstock during a game at Godfrey Park.
