AL ROSEN DOCUMENTARY AVAILABLE AT INDIANS TEAM SHOPS

Al Rosen, a four-time All-Star and 1953 American League MVP, is the subject of a new documentary: "Beating the Odds: The Al Rosen Story."

In the new documentary, Rosen, a one-time collegiate and Golden Gloves boxer, pulls no punches in interviews conducted with the film's writer and producer, Bill Levy, a former baseball writer and now a film producer in Cleveland.

Rosen led the American League with 37 home runs in 1950 as a rookie, and batted .336, hit 43 homers and drove in 145 RBI in 1953. In an injury-shortened career, Rosen drove in 100 or more runs five times and was the hero of the 1954 All-Star Game, hitting two homers and driving in five runs.

The DVD is available at Indians Team Shops, Amazon.com and www.rosendocumentary.com.
