More Grizzlies game on ‘Parental Guidance’ Blu-ray

My CaptureA near-capacity crowd packed Chukchansi Park in August 2011 for the Fresno Grizzlies game where actor Billy Crystal threw out the first pitch. He wasn’t on the mound as himself but as his character of Artie Decker, who is supposed to be the voice of the Fresno Grizzlies in the feature film “Parental Guidance.”

When the movie opened, a lot of people were disappointed that more of the Fresno Grizzlies baseball game was not shown.

I had an opportunity to take a look at the extra features that are included on the new Blu-ray release of “Parental Guidance.” Among the material that didn’t make the final cut is a long deleted scene that shows a lot more of the Fresno park and the fans who were at the game. If you were at the ballpark that night, you should pick up the movie on Blu-ray to see if you are in the deleted scene.
