A film crew is in Macon shooting scenes for a new Jackie Robinson biopic. The film stars Harrison Ford, Christopher Meloni and Chadwick Boseman. This is Macon's second baseball-themed movie since March.
Only two state baseball championship series were played today as two others were postponed due to Tropical Storm Bertyl. Columbus swept Ringgold to win the Class AAA championship while Loganville dominated Greenbrier to capture the Class AAAA title.
The baseball semifinals series began Monday night, and all 10 matchups played through at least Game 1 on a stormy night in many parts of the state. While some series ended in two-game sweeps, most will be decided tomorrow.
If you love movies, baseball, Harrison Ford, or the 1940’s, you may want to head to Macon in June. Producers are looking for hundreds of extras for the film “42”, which is a movie about Jackie Robinson.
