UPDATE - 10/10@9:46PM: For those of you who might be wondering, according to Fadoo Productions this documentary has nothing to do with the Geddy Lee show/documentary that was mentioned in Neil Peart's last news update.

The Mind of the Baseball CollectorGeddy Lee will be featured in a Sportsnet documentary titled The Mind of the Baseball Collector which airs this coming Monday, October 13th at 7PM on Sportsnet in Canada. A short, 15-second video trailer was posted online earlier today with the following description:

The Mind of the Baseball Collector looks at the addictive world of sports memorabilia collecting. The past comes to life through the collections and stories of: rock legend Geddy Lee, eclectic collector and lawyer Allan Stitt and the Guinness Book of World Records holder of the most autographed baseballs, Dennis Schrader.

The documentary is the last in a series of baseball documentaries produced by Fadoo Productions - the production company behind the last several Rush live videos and where Geddy Lee's brother Allan is the Head of Production. Geddy is well-known for being a huge baseball fan and collector of memorabilia; back in 2008 he donated over 200 autographed baseballs to the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum.
