Baseball - The Tenth Inning picks up the story of the national pastime where Ken Burns’ epic 1994 documentary film series Baseball left off. As the tumultuous 20th Century is drawing to a close and a new millennium is about to begin, the game of baseball continues to reflect the complicated country that created it. Players and owners wage a cataclysmic battle over money and power; dazzlingly talented Latin and Asian players transform the sport; Cal Ripken becomes the game’s new Iron Man; sluggers Mark McGwire, Sammy Sosa, and Barry Bonds do things that have never been done before; the Yankees build a dynasty, while their arch rivals, the Red Sox, stage the greatest comeback in history. In September of 2001, at a time when America seems most threatened, baseball offers the hope that things will one day return to normal. The national pastime has become more popular, and more profitable than ever, but suspicions and revelations about performance enhancing drugs keep surfacing, threatening the integrity of the game itself. Still, through it all, baseball endures a game of infinite possibility and surpassing beauty.Fifteen years after the release of his lengthy documentary on the history of America's pastime, Ken Burns returns to the subject in order to sum up how baseball in the years 1994-2010 reflected America itself as the country and the game dealt with the dawning of the 21st century.
