  • rick dempsey story

    Anyone heard this story before?
    The story is from the real-life childhood of former Baltimore Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey, who fell under the spell of charismatic coach John Jennings when he was 13 and playing on a Southern California Pony League baseball team in 1963. By the time the summer was over, Jennings had robbed a string of 20 banks up and down the California coast, using the team's travel as cover." I recall Dempsey talking about this once on a show and that he wanted to make a movie about it. I recall him saying that some of his little league team-mates fathers were cops actively looking for the bankrobbers at the same time that Mr. Jennings at the same time was coaching their kids.
    At one time there was talk of a movie being made with Johnny Knoxville. Not sure how it is progressing.
