This past weekend, The Spy Behind Home Plate opened up in more cities across the country. Director Aviva Kempner attended a special screening of the film at the Society of American Baseball Research (SABR) National Convention in San Diego for its annual convention. With many baseball experts looking to get a glimpse into the life of Moe Berg, the theater was full.

Robert Fitts (pictured above) wrote a book detailing USA baseball’s legendary tour of Japan in 1934. The book features stories about Moe Berg, making it relevant to Spy, but it tells many other stories that make it a very worthy read. Get it here.
