    Ken Burns Baseball.

    This is absolutely a must if you are a Baseball fan. It measures our history and passage of time through Baseball. It ties together generations and truly proves beyond any doubt that Baseball is the American Pastime. Through the years it has been the most popular sport. None of the other sports save Golf have the rich history of Baseball.
    For those who love Baseball and can't get to Cooperstown and the Hall of Fame, this series of DVD's has it all. It is something I will watch over and over.

    Disappointing, Biased

    I was disappointed with Ken Burns' series on baseball. I liked many aspects of it -- the early parts, the history, the usual Ken Burns techniques, and especially how much emphasis he put on the race problems in baseball and how he did not ignore the Negro leagues. But unfortunately the series really really misses out by an East coast bias that Burns apparently has. Apparently he doesn't think any decent players played outside of New York or Boston, or did not have a Yankees or Red Sox uniform on. There is scarcely a mention of a Cardinals player, a Cubs player, anyone west of New York! Musial? Aaron? They were scarcely given the attention they deserved. Give me a break!

    Engrossing and Historical

    I first saw this film as a student at the Jim Evans Academy of Professional Umpiring. It was shown as an optional distraction during our lunch hour and I quickly became hooked on it. The film footage and photographs are amazing and only topped by the commentary and insight offered by several guest speakers/former players. It is the most complete anthology of the game I have ever seen, from its inception, through the dead ball era, the color barrier, and the infamous reserve clause. I learned as much about baseball and how we arrived at its current version, as I did from my month of professional umpiring instruction. This collection is a must for any true student of the game, umpire or former player alike.

    AMAZING.

    This is the best documentary of Baseball as I know it. If you are a true baseball fan, and not some type of a front runner, then this collection is for you.
