PRLog - Feb. 13, 2013 - LOS ANGELES -- Come Aboard Productions is now in pre-production on Deadball, a feature film based on Mike Sowell's award-winning book, The Pitch That Killed. The screenplay was written by Pamela Lynn Sullivan & Jeffrey David Anderson and details the pivotal 1920 MLB season and the sport's only on-field fatality--Cleveland's beloved shortstop, Ray Chapman.

"We are excited to bring this important story to life on screen," stated writer and producer, Pamela Sullivan.  "1920 was a pivotal season in our national pastime.  We want to tell the amazing story of complex characters who came together to save 'America's Game' during the height of a corruption scandal and the sport's first major tragedy."  

Additionally, the production company plans a grassroots effort to have Ray Chapman, the only major league player to be killed by a pitched ball, inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame.  

More details on the project will be announced soon.
