TV Fact #394 – November 21st, 2015:

Ironically, the 1994 American Emmy Award-winning television documentary miniseries “Baseball”, created by Ken Burns about the game of baseball, first aired in the fall of 1994 when much of the season and the World Series had been cancelled due to a strike.

This, technically, made it the only “baseball” available to millions of unhappy fans at what should have been the most exciting time of the season.

Still…Burns kept the flame of the sport alive that year by showing everything that it was and all it had endured through themes of  race, business, labor relations, and the relationship between baseball and society. Just showing…there is a reason baseball is America’s past time. Because it runs so parallel to the rest of our lives.
