“The Best We’ve Got”

See “The Best We’ve Got: The Carl Erskine Story” on the big screen!

Special Olympics Indiana has teamed up with award-winning Indiana filmmaker Ted Green to create a documentary about Indiana native Carl Erskine, who has been a pivotal figure in our history.

The result is “The Best We’ve Got: The Carl Erskine Story,” which highlights Carl’s life as an advocate of inclusion, his storied baseball career and his important role in our movement.

SOIN will host screenings at major locations throughout the state, beginning with the world premiere in August in Carl’s hometown of Anderson before the documentary receives its official broadcast on WFYI in September. Additional cities will include Indianapolis, Fort Wayne, Muncie, Terre Haute and West Lafayette, and more may be added as tour sponsors join the project.

“Without the Carl Erskines of the world, we would never know the real power of sport.”

Tim Shriver, son of Eunice Kennedy Shriver and chair of the Special Olympics International Board of Directors
