In April 2017, members of The Mudville Base Ball Club were invited to participate in the making of a movie based on the life of former Red Sox catcher Moe Berg.  Representing members of the 1936 Washington Senators and Boston Red Sox, the filming took place at Boston’s Fenway Park.  The movie, starring Paul Rudd as Berg and featuring an impressive list of Hollywood notables, debuted in January 2018 at the Sundance Film Festival and was  released to theatres in June 2018.
