On Saturday, April 29, 2023, MoMI welcomed John DeMarsico, New York Mets Game Director for nightly SNY broadcasts—the most creative, entertaining, and innovative live sports show in the country—for a big-screen showcase of the cinematic inspirations for his baseball broadcasts. DeMarsico paired clips from some of his favorite films with sequences from his broadcasts that were directly inspired by those films. The evening featured a conversation moderated by Curator of Film Eric Hynes covering cinema and baseball; the extraordinarily complex art of live sports editing; working with star announcers Keith Hernandez, Ron Darling, and Gary Cohen; and more.
