He knows interest will only increase if actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon follow through on their plans to make “The Trade,” a movie based in part on a book about the swap written by the late sports writer Maury Allen.
Peterson said he has agreed to be a consultant for Warner Brothers.
“I’m sure people are still wondering and that’s why I hope the movie comes out,’’ he said, “because they’re going to find out it was nicer than what they thought was going on.’’
...The New York Post in February 2011 reported that Kekich, 67, was “panic-stricken” about the movie and is trying to stop it. His first wife hopes he succeeds.
But Peterson said Susanne, who did not join him in Fort Lauderdale for the charity game, will be thrilled to know that several of his former teammates asked about her Saturday.
“She is not ready to come to these things. She will, I hope, some day because they all ask about her. They all like her.”
Peterson tugged on the bill of his Yankees cap and said, “She knows once I cross the Mississippi, I can put this hat on. I hide it (at home in Iowa). We don’t want to bring up any knowledge of the fact because we have a 16-year-old and she doesn’t even know I played. Once she finds out that, then she’ll find out the other thing and we don’t think she’s quite ready for it yet.”
