Imagine living through the deadball era.....sheesh
you mean the non Negro era?
No I mean the era were you were lucky to hit the ball out of the infield....wtf?
Pitchers in that era had an unfair advantage. All their records should have asterisks. They should be banned. No way are they worthy of the HOF.
Totally agree...they even were allowed to smush the ball to make it even softer
Fuck cy young and you too Walter johson
integrity of the game.
RIP Bump Baily
Just switched over to this. Great series. My stupid roommates in college ragged on me for watching PBS when it first aired. you guys
Man the babe was really a fucked up dude...drove his wife to a nervous breakdown ....lol
Watching these old clips gives me douche chills. I'm sure at the time he was the pinnacle of coolness, but 80 years later? No.
If steroids would have been around in the olden days, those guys would have done them too.
Personally, I enjoyed watching those roided up guys hitting moon shots.
I like Burns work, but that is the one I felt he really dropped the ball on way too much NYC and Boston ignoring huge parts of the game's history.
It's about that time of year when I want to bash my head with a Louisville slugger after the "Hall of Fame" voting results are announced. What a fucking sham it's turned into.
Mmmmmmm, baseball was much more East Coast in the before darkies days.
People and owners from the East took the game out West but it was important to show just how much the East dominated the West long ago.
I think its an excellent look at olden times.
I dun paid for it.
It goes up to the modern times, that is the period I am referring to.
In the original series, Each decade through the 60s got its own 2-2.5 hour episode, but the last one covered 1970-1994. Did he just get lazy or feel that this era had less social importance? Perhaps fewer larger than life "characters" in the game?
It didn't have enuff Tony Gwynn.
I don't think very many people thought the steroid era was a bad thing... It reinvigorated a dying sport. it made things exciting for the first time in a few decades ..I wish they'd legalize steroids
