You might have seen these on the Major League “Wild Thing Edition” DVD’s photo gallery but not even realized what they were.
But thanks to Mrs. Taylor’s scrapbook, we’ve gotten a look at a couple of scenes that were cut from the documentary on my 1988 Cleveland Indians — footage lost forever to the cutting room floor.
Above is a snapshot from Jake and Lynn‘s wedding at All Saints on Euclid after the season. Our team saluted the happy couple on their way out of the church. (Interesting note for the game-used baseball bat collectors — my team only used Louisville Sluggers in the movie but you can see some Rawlings bats above.)
You’ll also remember that Jake spent a season in the Mexican League. The only visual proof of that is the image above. He was a member of the Puebla Black Angels in 1987 before we picked him up.
