| From
Boys of Spring The Movie

MESA, Ariz., July 11, 2011 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Long-time Chicago Cubs spring training P.A. announcer, Tim Sheridan, has partnered with Kickstarter.com to help complete a documentary film over 25 years in the making. "Boys of Spring - The Movie," follows Tim on his journey with the iconic, hard-luck, Chicago Cubs as both he and the Cubs attempt to reach their ultimate dreams.

The film is full of behind the scenes, never-before-seen footage shot by Tim as he worked next to Cubs legends like Harry Caray and Ron Santo. As Tim puts it, "There's more to a team than the games they play."

"Boys of Spring - The Movie" is nearing final production; however funding is needed for official release of this unique documentary to fans. Tim says, "Kickstarter seemed to be the best way to get Cubs fans involved in the production of the film. As a die-hard Cubs fan myself, I know how important our team's legacy and history is. Kickstarter gives fans a rare opportunity to contribute to that history."

To be a part of "Boys of Spring - The Movie," fans can donate as little as $10 using an Amazon.com account. As a thank you, fans will receive a copy of the Boys of Spring documentary before its official release next spring. There are a range of donation levels and rewards available on Kickstarter.com, including Cubs memorabilia and your name in the movie's credits. With a significant donation ($3,000+), Tim will personally announce your child's little league game, speak at an event, or name you as a producer of the film.

Boys of Spring isn't about a team winning or losing. It's about something deeper. An examination of life on its winding path and how, in spite of perceived failures, there is happiness and success. Cub fans will find joy this season and for years to come with the Boys of Spring film by donating and claiming their place in Cubs history. An epic World Series drought can't stop the faithful Cubs followers, who know better than anyone - "There's always next spring!"
