Secaucus, N.J., March 10, 2011 – A behind-the-scenes look at the employees who work at Boston’s historic Fenway Park is featured in the premiere of Prospect Productions’ documentary Down the Line on MLB Network on Saturday, March 12 at 4:00 p.m. ET. Produced by brothers Colin and Nick Barnicle, Down the Line offers rare footage inside Fenway Park, detailing how employees prepare for a game and their unique relationship with Red Sox players. The documentary includes interviews with ball attendants, grounds crew members and Boston Red Sox Manager Terry Francona, who provides his thoughts on the importance of clubhouse attendants in Major League Baseball.
Born outside of Boston and life-long Red Sox fans, this is the Barnicle’s first documentary for Prospect Productions, which they co-founded in 2011. A preview of Down the Line can be viewed here.
