Jon’s 2019 Screenings in San Francisco and L.A.

Jon will be presenting screenings of his films for Black History Month (“Raceball”) and Women’s History Month (“Diamond Dames”) in February and March, and another in October for the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake.

The “Raceball” program features Jon’s films about Jackie Robinson and Jim “Mudcat” Grant. “Diamond Dames” presents films about players from the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League, Dodgers superfan Emma Amaya, and female pro umpire Perry Barber.

In October, Jon returns to the Koret Auditorium in San Francisco to present ‘The Day the World Series Stopped” about the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake and baseball’s Fall Classic.

All screenings will feature a Q&A and book signing with Jon, along with special guests Perry Barber and Emma Amaya at selected screenings for Women’s History Month.
