You may have heard of Bobby Barad, an agent who represents several big leaguers including Robinson Cano. He has an interesting project on the side.

Bobby has created The Sportys DVD. It’s a cartoon for kids designed to teach them how to play and appreciate baseball. Along with the cartoon, there is an instructional segment for parents featuring Yankees hitting coach Kevin Long.

Bobby got an All-Star team of animators together to work on the project. One of the characters, a baseball named Stitch, is voiced by the actor Michael Clarke Duncan. There’s a story in the paper today about the project.

I had a chance to see the DVD earlier this week and it was good. If you have kids you want to teach baseball to, this would really help you. I’m going to get one for my nephew.

There are two ways to order the DVD:

* Go to

* Or call (800) 420-7545.

If you have comments for Bobby, you can e-mail him.
