Welcome to PhD Theater
PhD Theater is now open. The purpose of PhD Theater is to showcase cinematic works that will help you get your PhD in life – through baseball. During our next podcast featuring baseball sportscaster, Jack Buck (Episode 41, release date: January 28, 2011) Ed, Farley & Mark will be reviewing the 2006 PBS documentary, Kokoyakyu – High School Baseball.
This 54 minute film is about the Koshien Tournament. Four thousand high school teams compete in a single elimination tournament. In 2010, Japan won the Little League World Series. For the members of that team, their next baseball goal is to lead their high school to victory in the national tournament.
Send us your thoughts and comments about this film by 7:00 am. on Saturday, January 22nd and we just might include your comments with our review of this documentary. email@example.com.

Ed Kasputis and Mark Rantala attended this event of Saturday, August 21st and they’ll be giving their insight during our next podcast. The Wise Guys also attended Day 2 of the Series and we’ll get their kid perspective about this grand event.
This year, more than 7,000 teams started the tournament. The United States had approximately 6,500 of those teams. Sixteen teams make it to the Little League World Series. Eight are from the United States and eight are from abroad.
“Every Baseball PhD needs to come to this event” said Ed Kasputis. “There is no charge for parking or tickets and it’s pure baseball heaven. I can’t believe that these kids are 11 and 12. They play like little big leaguers already. What I would give to be 12 again!”
