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.
