Family Member Perspective Sought

HBO Sports

HBO Sports is producing a documentary dealing with the time period of September 11, 2001, through the Yankee/Diamondback World Series.  To many, this World Series represented much of what was happening in New York at the time.  Some people used sports as an escape and others found it as a source of inspiration. The producers are looking for stories from those who were affected by 9/11 and were touched by sports and this particular World Series in any way.  If you are interested in the project and would like to be interviewed, please contact Joe Lavine by e-mail at http://www.joelavine@hbo.com or by phone at 212-512-1016.
