Hey Twins Fans,

Last year we directed a movie about Twins' top prospect Miguel Sano's signing in the Dominican Republic in 2009 called Ballplayer: Pelotero.

We am happy to announce that since 2009 we never stopped filming with Miguel and are 4 years into production on a sequel that will track Miguel from his humble beginnings in the Dominican Republic, through the Twins' minor leagues system, and hopefully one day soon all the way to the majors.

We have filmed already with Miguel and other future Twins in Boca Chica DR, Fort Myers, Elizabethton, and Beloit. We have had cooperation and access from the team, Miguel and his family and have the chance to tell a truly special story. It takes a long time to make it to Target Field though and we need your help to make it happen.

We have launched a Kickstarter page to raise enough money to keep shooting this year. Our goal is $25,000; enough for us to make 5 trips to Fort Myers this season and 1 to the Dominican republic. Your contributions will make this film happen and we have some awesome rewards, to get you excited about the future of the Twins! Please check it out.

Every dollar counts, and please help spread the word on Facebook and Twitter.

Jon, Ross, and Trevor!

Thanks 70charger!

We may be young, but we have proved what we are capable of with the first Ballplayer: Pelotero. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out on Netflix. Watch Ballplayer: Pelotero Online | Netflix

I don't think the original reply was actually meant as a jab at your cred but rather a joke about the whole Sano age debate.

Pelotero was fantastic. I hope many here will support this worthy initiative.

My response was indeed a joke about the whole age controversy documented in the film. I very much enjoyed Pelotero and look forward to the sequel.

Congratulations on the first film. I enjoyed it very much, all the more because of its connection to the Twins. I am looking forward to your second film and I just joined your list of backers. Good luck meeting your goal.

I am worried now that I've signed up for Kickstarter, I will get sucked into an internet-hole and spend hours reviewing all the projects. I'm a notoriously easy touch so following your link could get expensive for me.

Thanks so much for your support! Hopefully it doesn't turn into too big a rabbit hole... There are a lot of worthy projects out there though.

I just watched Pelotero on Netflix last weekend. I enjoyed it very much. Good luck on the next one.

If you haven't clicked over, you owe it to yourself as a Twins fan. Not only is there a lot of signed stuff from Sano available, but there is also a 3-day tour of Dominican Republic baseball with the producers available. Talk about a bucket list item.

Good luck guys! Hopefully by the end of the season you will need to go to New Britain to follow Miguel.
