Terrific Documentary

Nine Innings from Ground Zero (2004)

**** (out of 4)

Terrific documentary covering baseball following the September 11, 2001 attacks on America. The documentary picks up on the day of the attacks and then continues as the New York Yankees forced the Arizona Diamondbacks to a Game 7 in the World Series. This is a pretty remarkable and well-balanced documentary that pays great respect to the tragedy that happened but it also showed how important the sport was for people suffering through their pain. We get to hear from various family members of those killed who explain what meeting various baseball players meant to them. This is an incredibly touching documentary that shows what it was like watching baseball in the days and weeks after the terrorist attacks. We see some of the September 21st game between the Mets and Braves as this was the first game played after the attacks. From here we see the ride that the Yankees went on as they fell down 0-2 in the first round to Oakland only to fight back and win. Once they hit the World Series they lost the first two games in Arizona only to return home and win all three in quite a remarkable way. I think this documentary is really going to touch those who watch it because just seeing these emotional games and what they meant to people was something special. As the documentary stated, even if you hated the Yankees you couldn't help but see them as America's team. We get interviews with Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Derek Jeter, Joe Torre, Bobby Valentine, Paul O'Neill, Bob Brenley, Jim Joyce and even President Bush who threw out a famous first pitch at Game 3.
