Found out today that Netflix is documenting the season, story in the NY Times.


When Netflix announced in February the documentary project with MLB featuring the Red Sox, no one quite knew what to expect, even those intimately involved with the planning. From the outset, it’s been clear the point of the project is more to shine a light on the lives of players and those in the organization along with behind-the-scenes aspects of the industry versus documenting the wins and losses on the field each night.

That’s why after gathering material for each of the team’s first 16 home games, the Netflix crew ... will be headed on the road a bit more. The crew will be traveling with the team to St. Louis on Friday (today) to capture what it’s like to pack up after playing a 7 p.m. home game, one which the Red Sox dropped 7-5 after with a strange ninth inning, fly overnight to a new city, arriving in the wee hours of the morning, sleep for a few hours in the hotel and then head to a new ballpark that night for another game.

“This is part of baseball. You play a game, get in somewhere at 5 in the morning, wake up at 10, you’re not sure where you are, and you got a game in nine hours,” said executive vice president and chief marketing officer Adam Grossman, who’s been heavily involved from the beginning with the Netflix production on the Red Sox side.

Cameras are in the clubhouse where reporters are allowed, but also in the training room and weight rooms where it is off-limits to media. They are in manager Alex Cora’s office when he has to deliver tough news to a player, like optioning him to Triple A or designating him for assignment. The crew has been in the dugout for more than a dozen games already and each night roughly eight to 10 players and coaches are wearing mics, picking up audio of discussions about in-game decisions, mound visits, tactical moves, maybe even second-guesses — or perhaps what they had for lunch that day or where they plan to visit on the next road trip.

Parsing through the thousands of hours of audio and video will be a monumental task.
It'll be cool to see this when it's ready for prime time . . . adds new meaning to the term 'inside baseball.'
