HOHOKAM PARK – MESA, Ariz. — (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Chicago Cubs Spring Training Public Address Announcer, former FOX TV Editor, and Cubs documentary filmmaker Tim Sheridan is auctioning the Naming Rights on eBay for his film “The Boys of Spring.” The starting bid is $80,000, with the auction closing on April 17th. The eBay Item number is 7506804740 and is listed as, Chicago Cubs Documentary Naming Rights in the Everything Else: Weird Stuff: Slightly Unusual category.

Sheridan, who has been involved with Chicago Cubs spring training for 22 seasons, shot much of the film himself, including never seen press box antics of late Cubs announcer Harry Caray. The documentary covers the history of Chicago Cubs spring training, including his own connection as long-time Cubs spring training PA announcer, giving the film a unique and personal perspective not to be missed by anyone who loves the Cubs.

Tim’s archive of never released Cubs footage is staggering, including personally videotaped interviews with over 50 Cubs players, former players, coaches, and announcers.

Financing an independent film is difficult, and that’s why Tim has turned to eBay. “I’ve spent all my resources on this project over the past 10 years, and now we need a Presenting Sponsor to get this great story out to the legion of Cubs fans worldwide,” Sheridan said, “and eBay is the perfect venue for this search.” With the start of a new baseball season, this is a great way for a company or individual to be a part of Chicago Cubs history!
