Sunn Stream proudly presents Max Patkin: The Clown Prince of Baseball celebrating the unforgettable legacy of Max Patkin. This nostalgic journey begins in 1944 Hawaii, where Max, then a Class D Wisconsin minor league pitcher turned Navy serviceman, inadvertently launched his career. A humorous base-trot behind Joe DiMaggio, following a home run, captivated an audience and set the stage for a lifetime of entertainment.

Over nearly five decades, from 1944 to 1993, Max's rubber-faced, loose-jointed persona became a staple in minor league ballparks across America, never missing a single appearance. His enduring appeal saw him star alongside Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon in 'Bull Durham,' the quintessential minor league baseball film, where he played himself—the beloved Clown Prince.

Max's performances, adorned in a baggy uniform marked by a question mark, combined coaching, batting, dancing, and witty banter, drawing crowds and laughter wherever he went. This film aims to encapsulate the era when baseball was pure, clowns like Max Patkin brought joy to the game, and the spirit of America's favorite pastime was alive in every pitch and jest. Join us in celebrating the man who brought smiles to the faces of baseball fans for fifty years.
