Following the release of the long-awaited documentary "Let's Play Two" that immortalized PEARL JAM's sold-out August 2016 shows from Wrigley Field comes the "Let's Play Two" baseball game named "Home Run Hitting Contest". Designed as an 8-bit game inspired by the iconic performances at Wrigley Field, the game features all the band members as baseball players.

"Let's Play Two" was directed by renowned director/photographer Danny Clinch and produced by Monkeywrench Productions, Tourgigs Productions, Universal Music Publishing Group, Republic Records, FOX Sports and Major League Baseball in collaboration with Milkt Films and Polygram Entertainment.
With Chicago being a hometown to Eddie Vedder, PEARL JAM has forged a relationship with the city, the Chicago Cubs and Wrigley Field that is unparalleled in the world of sports and music. From "Ten" to "Lightning Bolt", the feature film shuffles through PEARL JAM's ever-growing catalog of originals and covers — spanning the band's twenty-five-year career. Through the eyes of Danny Clinch and the voice of PEARL JAM, the film showcases the journey of the special relationship — using the past and present of both the band and the Chicago Cubs through the music, the sweat and the eternal hopes of being both a Cubs fan and PEARL JAM fan.
"In my films and photographs, I love to explore the relationship between a band, their fans and the location," Clinch explains. "When it happens that the main characters of your film are PEARL JAM, the Chicago Cubs, their fans, and Wrigley Field during a historic moment, you know it's going to be epic. Our instincts were correct to follow the story and it took us to a historic Game 7 of the World Series ending a hundred-and-eight-year drought for the Cubs. I have learned to welcome the unexpected and it always pays off if you're ready for it."
Clinch and Milkt executive producer Lindha Narvaez have been a director/production team on film projects for fifteen years, including PEARL JAM live concert film "Immagine In Cornice" (2007) and various PEARL JAM EPKs throughout the years.
Danny, Lindha and "Let's Play Two" cinematographers Vance Burberry and Josh Goleman as well as editor Taryn Gould collaborated with PEARL JAM to produce content for the release of 2013's "Lightning Bolt", including a short film and music video for "Mind Your Manners".
Republic Records released the "Let's Play Two" soundtrack in September in conjunction with the film's theatrical release.
