I just finished watching Ken Burns Baseball Documentary (9 Part/Innings/DVD's on the history of baseball) and I would like to recommend it to eveyone on this board. I am sure everyone would enjoy it and it would put a lot of meaning behind the pre-war card and memorabilia collections that you all enjoy. It is excellent!

The whole thing used to be available free online (maybe YouTube) not sure if it's still there. Certainly worth the time.

It is entertaining, but one must question it's accuracy, when it fails to pronounce one of baseball's all time greatest players (Wagner) name correctly.

I watched it about 5 or 6 years ago.. definately an A+ documentary and a MUST see for any baseball fan!* As I recall, the first 5 or 6 innings (CDs) documented pre wwii baseball, so the majority of the documentary is vintage!

yep, bought the dvd set about 8 years ago(still havent watched the part on the seventies) I love the prewar sections the best,but I do question the overall acuracy, as Mr. Burns seems to have presented some of the legends as fact, ie. the Cobb/wagner base sliding incident, and the G.C. alexander strike out of Lazeri in the WS.

Its worth it just for the old photos / filmclips.

"In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball.... Let us go forth awhile and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms.... the game of ball is glorious." Walt Whitman

Are Bruces the reincarnation of Whitman?

Edited because receiving poorly written, threatening e-mails just isn't any fun during the holiday season.

The first 3 innings are the best in my opinion.

Don't know if anyone saw this, but Studs Turkel died a couple of months ago. He was in the series quite abit...
