Happy Birthday, Bobby V.
Today Robert John "Bobby" Valentine, manager of the Chiba Lotte Marines of Japan's Pacific League, turns 58 years young.
A few weeks back we previewed The Zen of Bobby V., which made debut at this year's Tribecca Film Festival. Zen is a documentary directed by 3 NYU students — Andrew Jenks, Andrew Muscato, and Jonah Quickmire Pettigrew — following Valentine "through a season of baseball in Japan."
Shortly after publishing the post, we shared a few emails with Muscato who informed us that the film will be broadcast tonight on ESPN2 at 9 PM, with a DVD release soon to follow.
Be sure to check it out tonight on the Deuce.
