Base Ball Discovered continues to charm audiences.  The MLB Advanced Media documentary on baseball’s origins, written and produced by Sam, received the Award for Baseball Excellence at the 3rd annual Baseball Film Festival at the Hall of Fame in September.  The award recognizes the film that best captures “research, factual accuracy, historical context, and appreciation of the game.”  This follows the warm reception Sam was given at this year’s SABR Convention in Cleveland, where she addressed the SABR Origins Committee and screened the film for a packed house of conventioneers.  Others agree:  Vin Scully calls the film a “grand slam,” and the unexcitable George Will calls it “fascinating.”
