Benefit baseball movie screening set

Andra Belknap, Ojai Valley News reporter

Ojai resident Tony Thacher met youth baseball coach Nicolás Reyes, one of the subjects of the film “Ghost Town to Havana,” during a 2014 trip to Cuba.
“When I came back, I came to our Rotary Club and I said, 'They could really use some help down there,'” recalled Thacher. “These kids were playing with sticks.”
Since that 2014 trip, Thacher and his fellow Rotarians have transported hundreds of pounds of baseball equipment to Cuba.
“When I hear of someone going to Cuba, I say, 'How would you like to take another checked bag?'” said Thacher.
The Rotary Club of Ojai will sponsor an exclusive screening of the film “Ghost Town to Havana” May 26 at 7 p.m. in the Matilija Auditorium at 703 El Paseo Road.
