Goofs

In a closeup of Dennis Eckersley facing Kirk Gibson in the 1988 World Series, the footage is reversed in order to make it appear Eckersley is facing the right of the screen, juxtaposed with Gibson facing to the left. The letters in the nameplate on the back of Eckersley's uniform are backwards. See more »

Quotes

Bill Lee: They interviewed Sparky Anderson before Game 7, and he said, "No matter what the outcome of this game, my starting pitcher's going to the Hall of Fame." And I said, "No matter what the outcome of this, I'm going to the Eliot Lounge."

A Little Of This, A Little Of That As The Series Ends
12 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This last segment covers 1970 all the way to the early '90s. The series was shown on television in 1994, so it probably finished filming segments in 1993.

Topics include manager Earl Weaver and the Baltimore Orioles, Willie Stargell and the Pittsburgh Pirates, "The Big Red Machine" of the Cincinnati Reds and the Yankees rise and fall under George Steinbrenner. We also witness more horrible losses by the Boston Red Sox. What a shame this series wasn't continued and Sox fans could finally be shown celebrating the end of their dreaded "curse" in 2004.

In between these stories are more labor discussions and tributes to Roberto Clemente, Carl Yazstremski and Pete Rose.

I was sorry to see this nine-part series end. It had a definite bias on certain issues but it was great to watch, each one of the two-hour segments. I would have enjoyed them discussing the home run records being smashed and the steroids scandal that has gone with that. I'm sure they would have amended their tribute to Rose, too. At any rate, each decade in baseball provides tons of heroes and controversial subjects.
