Players, coaches, managers, fans, the owner Jack Cain, and even the mascot Rockie [the former Beavers mascot] are interviewed in this behind the scenes [somewhat campy] look at one of the most successful minor league [Colorado Rockies farm team] franchises in history. Set in scenic Oregon, video includes game footage at Civic Stadium. Superb videography makes this a “must have.”

Casey Kotchman, the then-13 year old batboy for the visiting Boise Hawks, plays a cameo role. Casey, an Atlanta Brave, is the son of longtime minor league manager and area scout for the Los Angeles Angels Tom Kotchman, who’s interviewed on the video.

Even Elvis is in the house. Then future major leaguer Elvis Pena is caught on camera in a playful moment.
