DVR alert - part 2 is on tonight!

http://www.pbs.org/baseball-the-tenth-inning/

I missed most of Part 1, but got to see a brief clip of a young Ken Griffey Jr. Wow - he had the most beautiful, natural swing I've ever seen.

Steroids, the '94 strike (didja know the Expos had the best record in baseball when the strike hit?), the '04 Red Sox.

If you appreciate baseball in any small amount, take the time to watch.

It look like the next airing is scheduled for Monday Nov 8 (Part 1), and then Monday Nov 15 (Part 2).

That gives you time to rent/borrow/buy the original series from 1994. It runs 18 1/2 hours, and is worth every minute of it.

"Major themes explored throughout the documentary are those of race, business, labour relations and baseball and society. It is also said to have had an audience of 45 million viewers, which would make it the most watched program in Public Television history."

Hmmm... I've heard some criticism that this series is BORING. But as I haven't watched it myself, I can't say.

I'll check it out anyways because, you know, I like baseball or somethin'.
