Baylor Releases Video Pitch for Bush Presidential Library, but Is It Still in Play?





Last week Baylor University posted on its Web site the eight-minute video that accompanied its apparently unsuccessful proposal to house the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum.

Among many other things, the video features Orel Hershiser, the star baseball pitcher, suggesting that a Little League field be included within the library complex. Mr. Bush was a part owner of the Texas Rangers baseball team in the years before he sought elective office. The video was sent to the White House in September 2005, but has not been widely available to the public until now....

An article posted today on the Waco Tribune-Herald’s Web site implied that the public release of the video was part of a renewed effort by Baylor to win the library. But Tommye Lou Davis, director of Baylor’s Bush Library Project, told The Chronicle today that that is not the case. Her assumption is still that SMU will be the library’s home.
