Docking (film)

Docking is a Canadian short film, directed by Trevor Anderson and released in 2019. Wordless apart from a brief introductory narration by Anderson, the film metaphorically explores his fears and insecurities about dating as a gay man through the depiction of a large penis flying alone through space until meeting another penis and docking with it. Anderson worked with production designer Todd Cherniawsky and make-up artist Christien Tinsley to create the film; the score was composed by Anderson's bandmate in The Wet Secrets. Anderson has described the film as an attempt to push the boundaries of non-fiction filmmaking, by reducing the element of personal essay and increasing the element of cinematic fantasia; the film premiered at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. In December 2019, the film was named to the Toronto International Film Festival's annual year-end Canada's Top Ten list for short films; the film received a Canadian Screen Award nomination for Best Animated Short Film at the 8th Canadian Screen Awards in 2020.

Arkansas Travelers

The Arkansas Travelers known informally as The Travs, are a Minor League Baseball team based in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The team, which plays in the Texas League, is the Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners; the team succeeded the Double-A Little Rock Travelers of the Southern Association, which folded after the 1961 season. They returned as the Arkansas Travelers of the International League in 1963. Both versions of the name derive from the old folk song, "The Arkansas Traveler"; the Travelers never took another nickname and possess the second-longest running nickname in minor league baseball history behind the Buffalo Bisons. After the end of the Southern Association in 1961, the Travelers were given the opportunity to move up becoming the Philadelphia Phillies' Triple-A affiliate for first the International League and the Pacific Coast League. However, in 1966 the Travelers moved down to the Texas League as the St. Louis Cardinals' Double-A affiliate through 2000; this marked the most successful period for the Travelers as they won the Texas League championship in 1971, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1989.

After serving 35 years as a Cardinals' affiliate, the Travelers became the Los Angeles Angels' Double-A affiliate in 2001. The Travelers remained with the Angels through 2016, winning the Texas League championship in 2001 and 2008. In 2017, the Travelers entered into a new Player Development Contract, becoming the Double-A affiliate of the Seattle Mariners; the 2018 season marked the Arkansas Travelers' 53rd season as a part of the Texas League, making them the longest tenured active member of the league. From 1932 to 2006, the Travelers played at Ray Winder Field. Bill Valentine, a former American League umpire and chosen as general manager for the Travelers from 1976 to 2007, began to promote the historic nature of Ray Winder Field; the ballpark gained recognition as one of the oldest still active parks in minor league baseball, fans traveled to Little Rock to experience the nostalgia and sample the baseball history represented by Ray Winder Field. However, after nearly three-quarters of a century, the field was showing signs of age and after a successful special election in 2005, the team moved to a new stadium at the start of the 2007 season and the field was demolished in 2012.

In 1991, the field saw the largest crowd to watch a baseball game in Arkansas history as Ray Winder played host to about 12,000 people. Dickey–Stephens Park, the new stadium in North Little Rock, hosted the first Travelers game against the Frisco RoughRiders on April 12, 2007, it is used for baseball and is the home field of the Arkansas Travelers minor league baseball team. It holds at least 7,000 people, it was built through a partnership between the Travs, Little Rock financier Warren Stephens and the city of North Little Rock. After donating an 11-acre plot of land east of the Broadway Bridge, Mr. Stephens named the ballpark in honor of two pairs of baseball-loving brothers. Founders Jack and Witt Stephens, Hall of Fame Catcher Bill Dickey and his brother Skeeter a former Major League ballplayer. Both Dickey brothers worked for Stephens Inc. following their baseball careers. Bill, who caught for the 1925 Little Rock Travelers managed the club for one season following a 17-year Hall-of-Fame career with the New York Yankees that included seven World Series titles.

In 2004 the team introduced new road jerseys and alternate caps that paid homage to the Travs' home city. The jerseys had "Little RockL written across the chest. Travelers’ jerseys have either featured "Arkansas" or "Travelers" since the 1950s. Nostalgia is in these days and the retro look has become stylish, We were the Little Rock Travelers for years and after all this time we thought we lost the identification with Little Rock; some people didn’t know we’re from Little Rock. The LR logo has had success on our replica caps and we thought that the time to make this change was right now." In Ray Winder, was the general manager for Little Rock Travelers when it became defunct in 1961, but continued as general manager for the Arkansas Travelers until 1976. Winder had worked as a ticket taker in 1915 before rising to general manager. More than once, he single-handedly kept baseball in Little Rock. In 1960, at the last minute, he used his relationships with major league teams to sign enough players for the Travelers to field a team—it had looked as if the team would not make or would have to move to another town.

During his 50-plus years with the team, he saw the Travelers sink to the bottom of the league only to rise three times to the league championship. In 1976, Bill Valentine, a former American League umpire, was chosen as general manager for the Travelers. Valentine would remain general manager until in 2007 after 31 years and would remain executive vice president for two more seasons, before retiring in March 2009. Valentine worked as an announcer for the Arkansas Travelers for eight years. In his first season as general manager, the team saw a 34% increase in attendance, due in part to Valentine's stunts including giving away tens of thousands of tickets to kids, hoping they would bring their parents to the game with them, holding midget wrestling and amateur boxing at the stadium; the Travelers' attendance continued to increase over the years, saw on-field success, winning five league titles while Valentine was GM. Valentine has been inducted into the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame, the Arkansas Officials Association Hall of Fame, the Texas League Hall
