LOS ANGELES, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Evzone Media+Experiential, LLC, announced today their new streaming television channel, The Sweet Spot: A Treasury of Baseball Stories, is now streaming on Amazon Prime. The Sweet Spot features an original documentary anthology series of the same name, focusing on deep, personal, and inside stories from players, coaches, writers, fans, artists, and more.
Evzone is the first indie studio to create a dedicated baseball channel encompassing the major streaming outlets. The Sweet Spot can be viewed on Roku, Vimeo on Demand, and now Amazon Prime—making The Sweet Spot available to over 130 Million viewers worldwide. Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and other streaming media outlets will be added in early 2017. The channel offers both ad supported and subscription based viewing.
Co-Founder and baseball documentarian Jon Leonoudakis, says, "This is a new look at America's oldest game. There's so much more to baseball than who had the most home runs. I'm exploring baseball's sub-culture to feature human stories and themes the mainstream media typically miss." Co-Founder, Kelly Holtzclaw, agrees, "The Sweet Spot is the story behind the stats. Record books only tell you what happened, we show you the how and why. What went on behind the scenes is fascinating." There are also plenty of gritty, on-field war stories from former players and coaches. "Above all," Leonoudakis says, "The Sweet Spot is about preserving baseball history."
Some episodes include: former players such as Mike "Tiny" Felder and Jim Campanis, Texas Rangers bench coach Steve Buechele, New Yorker artist Mark Ulriksen, ironman official scorer Ed Munson (who scored 2,003 consecutive games), female umpire Perry Barber, former Yankees bat boy Matt McGough, sportswriter Ron Rapoport, Dodgers Super Fan Emma Amaya, the San Francisco Giants' legendary equipment manager Mike "Murph" Murphy, and pitcher Jim "Mudcat" Grant, the first African-American to notch 20 wins in the American League. There are some 35 episodes in the can with at least another 30 planned for production in 2017.
The Sweet Spot is a logical step for Leonoudakis who has directed three feature- length baseball films; the cult classic Not Exactly Cooperstown, The Day The World Series Stopped, and Hano! A Century in The Bleachers. All three films have screened at The National Baseball Hall of Fame and reside in its permanent collection.
