More Baseball on Film

Yesterday, we discussed great baseball movies, but today's movies are documentary or instructional videos. The king of baseball documentaries is Ken Burns' multi-disk Baseball: 1840s-2010 [DVD 796.357 BAS].

If you're reading this, you're probably old enough to remember the Curse of the Bambino [796.357 CUR], and the gratifying Red Sox World Series year, 2004, which was "Eighty-six years in the making," Faith Revealed: The Historic Season of the 2004 Boston Red Sox [DVD 796.357 FAI].

Once the curse was put to rest, the Red Sox were reborn, and in 2013 the team was The Band of Bearded Brothers: The 2013 World Champion Red Sox [DVD 357 BAN].

The career of Red Sox pitcher, Bill Lee, is found in Spaceman: A Baseball Odyssey [DVD 796.357 SPA].

How-to instruction for up and coming young players (Little League) is provided by Play ball! [DVD 796.357 PLA].

Enjoy this Babe Ruth homerun from game 3 of the 1932 World Series. (Note: he WAS NOT a Red Sox player at that time--curses!)
