In 1994 documentarian Ken Burns came out with his history of baseball, told in nine “innings”. This week Burns updates his Baseball with The Tenth Inning on PBS. The Top of the Tenth is this week, followed next week with The Bottom of the Tenth.
In Baseball, Burns used a delightful array of talking heads (players and observers), the most compelling of whom were Buck O’Neil, Stephen Jay Gould and Bob Costas. I would expect the same style – and the same quality – in The Tenth Inning.
Baseball is one of my 10 Best Baseball Movies.
