So… this is a thing.

It’s the trailer for the upcoming Touch ‘em All Joe, which– as you learn in the clip– is from Bob McCown’s Fadoo Productions. The company’s Vimeo channel describes them as specializing in TV production, so I’m going to guess you won’t be seeing a theatrical release of this, but if you didn’t get enough good vibes out of your Blue Jays experience from watching come-from-behind wins the last two nights, perhaps this quick preview of a documentary on (arguably) the biggest moment in the team’s history will do the trick.

Check it out after the jump…

  1. arguably?

    • Alomar’s HR off Eckersley.

    • The Alomar HR was pretty epic.

    • Yup.

      • +1

        • Yeah..sorry fellas. Alomar’s HR can be #2, this is clearly #1.

          While Alomar’s HR capped a bigger comeback off a better pitcher, it wasn’t a game-winning hit, it just tied the game. Also, it was game 4 (so, not a series deciding game… and it was in the ALCS (not WS). Both HUGE moments, but for all of the supposed sensationalizing….Carter’s HR needs none – it is that good of a moment for an organization.

          • Exactly. To suggest the Alomar HR is even in the same stratosphere as the Carter HR is absolutely ridiculous. There is no debate.

            If there is any other moment in the conversation (which there isn’t), it would have to be Winfield’s double down the left field line in the 11th inning of Game 6 in the ’92 series.

  2. So they are going to make a full documentary out of this? Hmmm. I think the trailer is probably enough.

    Plus, I can’t believe Mitch Williams is alive. I for sure would have thought he drank himself to death in the years that followed.

  3. Goosebumps! Yeah!

  4. Never noticed the ump patting his chest like that. He’s doing so to let the other umpires know infield fly rule is in effect.

  5. “A swing and a belt!”

    And then what happens?!

    … Asked nobody because this one has been replayed a million times.

    Yes, I will still watch this documentary because I’m a sucker for baseball. :)

  6. I love Mitch Williams thinking he owned Joe with a sample size of four at bats… Bahahahhahah

    • Except he did know how to pitch to Carter. Down and away. Williams missed his spot, plain and simple.

      • And Carter made him pay! What I didn’t realize was, Mitch was only 28 when he gave up that HR, and would only pitch another 37 innings in mlb (33 earned runs, 52 bb’s and 40 k’s). I don’t know why, but I thought he was in his late 30′s when Joe hit that shot.

  7. There’s definitely been World Series years overkill, but this actually looks great. Love that they got Phillies to be in it.

  8. Am I the only one who’s bothered by the lack of a comma after “all”?

  9. I’m in tears, can go to my grave with these series wins unlike other organizations. Times of our lives.

  10. Can’t wait. I’ll never forget that moment the ball cleared the wall in left. It was truly a story book ending to the five years that lead up to that moment. Sure would be nice to win 4 out of 5 pennants again in this life time.

  11. Nostalgia ia a helluva a drug.
    Would I watch it? Yeah.
    Does it look cheesy as all fuck? Totally.
    Also: that opening shot of the Dome- pretty sure all those condos in the background didn’t exist back then. I know it’s just supposed to be a corny “set-up” animation, but still. A little attention to detail would be nice.

  12. The thing I remember most is that right before the pitch Carter hit for the home run, they showed Len Dykstra in the dugout picking his nose.
