Bennet Kelley recently interviewed OCD about our BAREHANDED CHAMPIONS documentary project, taking a break from the subject of internet law to talk about the first world series champion Providence Grays. With the big studio feature film “42″ about to be released, Bennet wanted to talk about the first African American to play in the major leagues, William White, who played first base for the Grays in 1879. The Grays also fielded the first Hispanic player in the National League, Sandy Nava, among the teams many baseball firsts. OCD is in pre-production of its documentary script written by Duncan Putney and Tim Norton (founder of the vintage Grays baseball team). Duncan also co-wrote the dramatic feature screenplay OLD HOSS with writer Kevin Faria that took second place in the Spotlight on Rhode Island screenwriting competition sponsored by the Rhode Island State Office of Film & Television.
