The Baseball Hall of Shame The Baseball Hall of Shame

Veteran reality TV producer Bruce Nash is back at bat. Nash, whose credits include For Love or Money and the infamous "Masked Magician" series Magic's Biggest Secrets Revealed, is about to meet with cable networks about turning his book, The Baseball Hall of Shame, into a regular TV series.

Nash wrote Hall of Shame with fellow author Allan Zullo. The duo collaborated on a series of books about sports bloopers in the 1980s, but then Nash began focusing on his TV career. Nash and Zullo recently opted to revive the franchise, recounting classic bloopers from the entire history of the game but also including newer entries featuring the likes of former L.A. Dodger Manny Ramirez and notorious Chicago Cubs fan Steve Bartman. Lyons Press recently published the new Baseball Hall of Fame book, subtitled The Best of Blooperstown.

"When we first did the book, people told us, 'How dare you do something negative about baseball,'" Nash recalls. "But as someone who loves baseball, the theme has been that everyone makes mistakes, even Major Leaguers. You dust yourself, you move forward. And this time around, we've gotten a really great reception from the likes of Major League Baseball and ESPN."

Nash is now soliciting nominations from fans to add their own blooper suggestions and will likely incorporate those ideas into the eventual TV show. As he envisions it, Nash says the show would contain actual footage along with re-creations of events and interviews. Nash's previous sports programming includes Amazing Sports Stories for Fox Sports Net, which earned four Sports Emmy nominations.
