“The Tenth Inning,” by Ken Burns Premieres Tonight on PBS

The highly anticipated “The Tenth Inning” is a two night, four hour documentary on baseball from the 1990s to the present day, by award-winning film-maker and historian Ken Burns.  Burns, who wrote and directed PBS’ Emmy Award Winning, “Baseball,” has structured his latest effort to continue where the latter left off.

From the PBS website:

“The film highlights dramatic developments that transformed the game: the crippling 1994 strike that left many fans disillusioned with their heroes; the increasing dominance of Latino and Asian players who turned baseball into a truly international game; baseball’s skyrocketing profits, thanks to new stadiums, interleague play, and the wild card; the rise of a new Yankee Dynasty; the Red Sox’ historic World Series victory; the astonishing feats of Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa and Barry Bonds; and the revelations about performance-enhancing drugs that cast a shadow on many of the era’s greatest stars and their accomplishments.”

“The Tenth Inning” will air on Sept. 28-29; 8:00 – 10:00PM ET on PBS

    I’m sure that you have it, it just might be the first time that you’ve ever turned it on other than on accident. I feel ya.
