Tenth Inning

Thousands of bats, three home run records and one "curse" have been broken since Ken Burns last explored the history of America's national pastime with his 1994 series BASEBALL. Now, Burns and co-director Lynn Novick update the series with THE TENTH INNING. Beginning with a crippling strike that alienated millions of fans and brought the game to the brink, this film tells the tumultuous story of our national pastime up to the present. It celebrates baseball's new Golden Age -- an era of unprecedented home run totals, popularity and prosperity -- and sheds light on one of the game's darkest chapters -- the steroid era. The film examines the compelling stories of Joe Torre, Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, Pedro Martinez, Ichiro Suzuki, Cal Ripken Jr. and Barry Bonds and features insightful commentary from an eclectic lineup of writers, broadcasters, fans and all-stars.

There are no upcoming episodes of Tenth Inning.
