1986 World Series Game 6 ... in Kenya


[YouTube Clip]

Dan Freiman, a Canadian volunteer and baseball fan, knows that his students, a group of orphaned Kenyan children, love two things: going to the field to play sports and making movies. So he decided to combine the two and filmed the kids re-enacting the 1986 World Series Game 6:

Growing up in Toronto, my friends and I used to re-enact Joe Carter's World Series home run during recess. I thought it'd be fun to have them do the same thing. The students and I ran through a couple of possibilities, including the Music City Miracle, but the kids liked the Buckner clip because of the huge pileup at the plate. They kept laughing at it.

Although the students understood the basic concept and rules of baseball they didn't know anything about the Red Sox or Mets when we first started shooting.

Kevid Kaduk of the Big League Stew has the story and interview with Dan: Link
