Who says the American media ignore the Toronto Blue Jays?
Okay, these guys aren't exactly the media but they are American and they do make movies. Okay, they're YouTube movies, but they are kind of fun.
Scott Blumenthal, Mike Levy and Dave Kreshover -- three baseball nuts who grew up on Long Island, N.Y. -- decided to make a movie about every ballpark in the majors. They started last summer and chose, of all 30 cities, Toronto.
Why little old us? ``We wanted to go someplace completely different with a different culture and different language," says Blumenthal. ``But tickets in Cleveland were too expensive, so we picked Toronto."
Blumenthal says the trio plan to do all 30, but at one a year they'll all be 69 when they're finished. ``At some point we're going to have to pick up the pace a bit," he says.
So what was so different about Toronto to a trio of guys who grew up on the Yankees and Mets?
``The absence of people beating each other up in the stands," Blumenthal says. ``It wasn't New York."
