Baseball: Stories From the Pressbox | 2000
Documentary about the history of baseball. Long before 24-hour sports networks, Americans got their daily fix of the national game by devouring their daily sports pages. Sports Illustrated's Frank Deford hosts this program in which veteran baseball scribes bring the game's greatest moments to life, reflect on the game's most colorful stars and discuss the role of baseball in American lore. Passages written by famous sportswriters of the 20th century, such as Grantland Rice, Damon Runyan and Ring Lardner, are read throughout the program.
