Description

This project will focus on the Linfield College baseball team and their return to the national title. It will take an in-depth look at what it takes to be a Linfield Wildcat and a national champion through the experience of the players.

I have grown up watching baseball my entire life. My family used to have season tickets to the Mariners, my parents played on adult-league teams, and I played softball growing up. Having experience in video shooting and editing, I would like to make five webisodes, each being three to five minutes long. These webisodes will go beyond the simple ideas of when each player began to play and who their favorite player is. This will give Linfield and all D-III baseball fans a look at what it takes to be a winning program. Along with these videos, I want to write a story to include with the interviews I have conducted to go further in-depth. These feature pieces will help exhibit the work on the website. Because I won’t be able to continue this project through the end of the national tournament, I will work with Daniel Pollack-Pelzner from the English department to help make sure this story has a strong narrative and close. I will use footage I shoot of practices, games, and player/coach interviews, as well as some raw footage that the players have shot themselves for candid, B-roll shots. My goals are to show the true nature of the team and players, and to demonstrate what makes this team so special.
