I found this film to be highly informative and fun to watch. It can get boring if you watch to long as most films this long and like this tend to do. I highly recommend it if you are a history bluff and or a baseball fan!!!!

You have got to be kidding me. How in the world anyone would rate this anything less than 5 stars is completely beyond me. I am dumbfounded. This is not only the greatest baseball documentary ever, it is the greatest documentary ever. It's a documentary about baseball, about racism, about human nature, about triumph and tragedy, about the very soul of the history of America. If you're going to decide whether to buy this set based on the reviews here, please ignore those low ratings with no explanation. Shame on them.
