Former MLB Players Toss MoonBall Media Into The Field Of Podcasting.


The baseball season’s start is just weeks away, but Anthony Seratelli and Eric Hosmer will not be on the field. Instead, the two former Major League Baseball players have launched MoonBall Media, a new content company that says it will focus on creating podcasts, social media content, and unscripted programming for online video distribution.


“We’re thrilled to officially announce the launch of MoonBall Media,” Seratelli said. “The opportunity to fully merge my passion and experience in both sports and storytelling is something I’ve been working towards for a long time. We have an amazingly talented team of producers and creators, and we look forward to entertaining audiences through our unique documentaries, weekly podcasts, live sports and much more content to come.”


The Diggin’ Deep podcast is their first release. It teams up Hosmer with former MLB player Peter Moylan and Justin Su’a, a process and development coach to elite athletes, coaches and executives. The podcast will touch on a variety of sports, not just baseball, as well as business, entertainment, and culture. The show made headlines with its first episode, in which Hosmer officially announced he had retired from baseball. He was part of the 2015 Kansas City Royals team that won the World Series. Hosmer also won four Gold Gloves and was MVP of the 2016 All-Star Game.


“I’ve always had an interest in authentic storytelling and feel this is the perfect time for me to dive into media and create content that’s entertaining and relatable,” Hosmer said. “I feel baseball content is underserved and my goal is for MoonBall to be the leaders in the space. I’m excited to team up with Anthony again after years together on the field and bring these stories to life.”


MoonBall says it will feature a combination of acquired and original content. Its projects also include a docu-series “Unbreakable” that delves into the human stories behind the greatest records in sports. Its slate also includes the documentary “Big City Cowboy,” that highlights two unlikely journeys of cowboys who come from vastly different worlds, both geographically and culturally, as they compete in the World Bull Riding Championship.


Seratelli, who also played for the New York Mets, has already been active in media since leaving baseball. His company, Jersey Filmmaker, has produced content for platforms and brands like Apple TV, Showtime, MSG, and Fanatics, and he has work with athletes such as Floyd Mayweather, Peyton Manning, and Aaron Judge.
