Baseball - A Film By Ken Burns


What a great gift idea for the guy into baseball. Appropriate for anytime of the year, but seemingly fitting now as we are in the heart of the baseball season.

From Ken Burns, well known for his work on other historical documentaries, "Baseball" offers an epic of American history. Told in "nine innings" with narration by John Chancellor and the voices of Paul Newman, Jason Robards, Billy Crystal, and other stars, the series covers 150 years. It starts with the myth debunking tale of baseball's true beginnings, followed by the growth of America's National Pastime. Through the decades of glory and record-setting achievements, as well as the scandals, the bigotry, and the big money. The series portrays the game as a mirror of America itself.
