One of the top prospects in the Minnesota Twins system, Miguel Sano, was featured in the documentary Ballplayer: Pelotero.
When we talked to filmmaker Jon Paley on Where We Live earlier this year, we mentioned that Sano could be making an appearance in New Britain, Connecticut this summer.
“Depending on how he does early in the season,” said Paley, “he could be there soon.”
If you want to see this Dominican baseball star, you’ll have plenty of opportunities this week. The Rock Cats kick off a six-day homestand tomorrow.
If you see a film crew following Sano, it’s likely Paley’s team. They’re working on a sequel to Ballplayer: Pelotero, focusing on Sano’s rise through the minors.
In the Twins organization, the good players tend to move up quickly. In fact, Oswaldo Arcia was just called up to the Twins to replace Aaron Hicks who went on the disabled list. Both Arcia and Hicks played in New Britain last year.
