Big-time Hollywood movie about Jackie Robinson currently being filmed at Engel Stadium

42D-00750Harrison Ford is returning to movies, and I am happy to report he will not be donning a fedora, leather jacket and whip as Octogenarian Jones and The Search For Even More Money.

Ford will be playing famed Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey in the new Warner Bros. movie, "42" about the life of Jackie Robinson. The movie is slated for an April, 2013 release around the time as the 66th anniversary of Robinson's first game as a Dodger.

Chadwick Boseman will play Jackie Robinson.

Here is the great part: The movie is currently being filmed at Engel Stadium in Chattanooga, Tennnessee. That stadium, which for years served as the home of the minor league Chattanooga Lookouts, will double as Ebbets Field in the film.

Do you know how hard it is to find anything with "Engel" spelled properly? People always screw it up with an "Ingle", "Engle" or "Angel". 

Get it right, people. It's Engel. Accept no substitutes ... unless they are better.
