Book Cover Eight Men Out                 DVD

(1988)
Eliot Asinof's detailed book Eight Men Out illustrates how the system of American sports collapsed in 1919, the year the Chicago White Sox threw the World Series. Filmmaker John Sayles worked on his script years before the 1988 film (or before he had the rights to make the film) as a labor of love.
Book Cover The Natural                 DVD

(1984)
From the sun-dappled heartland, a young man (Robert Redford, in soft lighting) emerges as maybe the best baseball player anybody's ever seen. On his way to the majors, he is cut down by an enigmatic black widow (Barbara Hershey) and vanishes for many years. When he reemerges, a silent mystery, he lands a spot with the New York team and begins tearing up the league--he's still the natural.
Book Cover Field of Dreams                 DVD

(1989)
A phenomenal hit when it was released in 1989, Field of Dreams has become a modern classic and a uniquely American slice of cinema. It functions effectively as a moving drama about the power of dreams, a fantasy ode to our national pastime, and a brilliant adaptation of W.P. Kinsella's exquisite baseball novel Shoeless Joe.
Book Cover Baseball

(1989) DVD
After the national success of his 11-hour epic, The Civil War--the highest-rated miniseries in public-television history--many wondered if Ken Burns could capture the same energy and passion with smaller subjects. His reply, the 18-hour history of America's greatest sport, Baseball, not only quieted these worries, it also perhaps surpassed his prior achievement.
Book Cover Baseball - Inning 3, The Faith of Fifty Million People (1910-1920)

(1994) This is just one tape out of the "Baseball" series above. This one deals with Joe Jackson and the Black Sox Scandal.
Book Cover World Series Fix - Black Sox Scandal                 DVD

A documentary about the Black Sox Scandal from the folks at A & E and The History Channel.
