Yesterday, the American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge in New York City hosted a screening of Baseball: A New York Love Story for their patients, arranged by Friends of Thirteen, Inc.  Among those in attendance were THIRTEEN’s CEO Neal Shapiro, producers Marc Rosenwasser and Ivette Feliciano, and the Macaulay Honors College students who served as the film’s production team.

The American Cancer Society’s Senior Managing Executive Karen Radwin and CEO Don Distasio addressed the crowd and explained the role of the Hope Lodge, which provides free lodging for cancer patients and their families in a healing environment, intended to support patients who have traveled far from home for treatment.

Baseball: A New York Love Story is a multi-part series that lends a New York perspective to tie in with Ken Burns’ The Tenth Inning.  The film airs this week on THIRTEEN on Tuesday and Wednesday from 10-11 p.m., and Thursday at 10:30 p.m.
