Cubs Fan Bill Murray Makes Valentine Pledge to Narrate "Scouting for Diamonds"

Hollywood Legend Urges Fans, Players & Moviegoers to Support Campaign


Nashville, TN -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2016 -- A new feature documentary film (in progress) "Scouting for Diamonds" shines a spotlight on the invisible heroes of baseball: the scouts. And yesterday Director/Producer, Molly Secours got a Valentines surprise when actor, Bill Murray not only agreed to narrate the film but grabbed a cocktail napkin and sent her a "selfless-selfie" urging everyone to support the Indiegogo Campaign so that Secours can continue shooting in Spring Training in March.

In the film we hear from some of the greatest legends in the game—including Willie Mays, Wade Boggs George Brett, Dusty Baker—as well as the scouts themselves—like Royals Veteran Scout, Art Stewart & former MLB Scouting Bureau Director, Don Pries—who recognized many a young player's immense talents and offered them a path to fame and fortune. While baseball scouts are rarely acknowledged despite their critical contributions to the sport, "Scouting for Diamonds" provides an intimate look at how they operate, what motivates them, and the immense satisfaction they derive from helping their organization improve. Most importantly, this may be the last chance to document what seems to be a profession in decline.

With just 3 days left to pledge, Murray and Secours need your help. To learn more about "Scouting for Diamonds" and the "Selfless Selfie" campaign or to make a donation, please visit or contact Bottom Of The Ninth Films at:
