Lori Martini is a girl on a mission! The Brooklyn resident is a die- hard NY Mets fan who has written what she hopes will become the new Mets anthem. Her song "Believe" debuted at Citi Field on May 27, 2011. Angel Pagan has called it "inspirational", and Justin Turner uses it as "his song" when he walks up to bat. "Believe" has also been performed during Cyclones games in Brooklyn. The "Believe" music video was released on July 1, 2011, coincidentally the same day that Ruth Roberts, the woman who wrote the original Mets song "Meet The Mets" back in 1969, passed away.
To say Lori is a baseball fan is somewhat of an understatement. She is an actress who got her start by talking her way into a Hugh Grant film that just happened to be shooting at Shea Stadium. "Believe" was also recently placed on VH1's first episode of "House of Consignment." She plays on several softball teams, has been to every Major League baseball stadium in the country, has her own bobblehead doll, and she has written, produced and stars in a short film called "Caught" which centers around, you guessed it, softball. She raised the money to make this film by selling Mets and Cyclones tickets. "Caught" is now making the rounds of film festivals and has already garnered a "best actress" award for Lori, and a "best drama short" award. If that were not enough, she was recently cast in a Dunkin' Donuts commercial where she plays a Mets fan. The spot is scheduled to air beginning in March and will run throughout the 2012 baseball season. Lori is now scheduled to be interviewed as a 'baseball expert' at Citi Field by Douglas Chuck Booth who himself has been to every Major League
baseball stadium and holds the Guiness World Record of visiting 30 stadiums in 24 days! Her mission is to not only try and set the Guiness World Record for women, but to have her song "Believe" played at each MLB Stadium.
"Caught" will be shown at several upcoming film festivals -- The Garden State Film Festival in NJ (3/24); The Women's International Film & Arts Festival in Miami (3/30); The Litchfield
Hills Festival in New Milford, CT (May 2012), The Buffalo Niagara Film Festival (4/20), and The Boston International Film Festival (4/15) with more to come.
It looks like baseball has been very good to Lori, and Lori has been very very good to baseball!!!
