Another Cubs movie? Yes. But not just another Cubs movie.

Tim Sheridan — the public-address announcer at HoHoKam Stadium in Mesa, Ariz., where the Cubs play their home exhibition games — is hoping to complete his film “Boys of Spring.”

“Intended to come out in January at Cubs Convention if all goes right,” he told Quick Hits on Wednesday during a visit with the HoHoKams on their annual business trip to Chicago.

Sheridan started his PA duties in 1984.

“That was a great spring start,” he said. “It hooked me into being a Cubs fan for life.”

And a chronicler of the Cubs, although his film extends beyond the playing field.

“I think this movie is a little more about life and its struggles to have your dreams fulfilled.”

To fulfill his dream of finishing the film, Sheridan ( has partnered with to raise funds. That would seem an easier — and quicker — quest than the Cubs’ winning their first World Series since 1908.

“Perhaps there’s a certain amount of my Irish luck that this movie comes out next year,” Sheridan said. “Maybe it’ll bring the Cubs good luck.”
