秋季經典,在美國又稱世界大賽,馬上就要開打。今年將由美國聯盟冠軍克里夫蘭印地安人隊,對上國家聯盟冠軍芝加哥小熊隊;前者自1948年後就未曾贏過世界大賽冠軍,後者更是自1908年後就與冠軍無緣。這兩隊在求冠之路上的挫敗,加起來超過了170年。不管今年是由哪一隊勝出,都將是締造歷史的一年。我家鄉的明尼蘇達雙城隊,上一次贏得世界大賽冠軍是在1991年,當時的興奮之情卻仍鮮明如昨日。棒球是連接美國和台灣的一座文化橋樑,為了慶祝棒球跨文化的魅力,我們特別拍攝了一支影片。拍攝過程可說是樂趣無窮 --- 梅健華 #FromAITDirector#SportsDiplomacy #WorldSeries
The Fall Classic, otherwise known in the United States as the World Series, is upon us. It’s come down to this: The American League champion, Cleveland Indians, a franchise that has not won the Series since 1948, will play the National League champ, Chicago Cubs, a team that has not won the title since 1908. That’s more than 170 years of baseball disappointment combined. Regardless of which team wins, this is one historic year. My team, Minnesota Twins, last won in 1991, but I remember the glee I felt like it was yesterday. To commemorate baseball as a cultural bridge between the United States and Taiwan, we recorded a video. We had plenty of fun shooting it…km
