Here is the Emmy Award-winning story of America's national pastime from master storyteller Ken Burns.
Now an all-new episode, The Tenth Inning, directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, brings the series up to date. The strike, the home run chase, the steroids scandal, the rise of the Yankees and the triumph of the Red Sox - through it all, baseball remains a mirror of America.
It is an epic overflowing with heroes and hopefuls, scoundrels and screwballs. Babe Ruth. Jackie Robinson. Shoeless Joe Jackson. Sandy Koufax. Satchel Paige. Pete Rose. Roberto Clemente. Casey Stengel. Hank Aaron. Joe DiMaggio. Ichiro Suzuki. Barry Bonds.
It is a saga spanning the quest for racial justice, the clash of labor and management, the immigrant experience, the transformation of popular culture, and the enduring appeal of the national pastime.
Bonus Features include 2.5 hours of deleted scenes and additional interviews.
