Sports are at a standstill with Major League Baseball and other major sports delaying their seasons due to the coronavirus,
PBS is stepping up to help. Filmmaker Ken Burns asked them to make his 1994 documentary series “Baseball” available to stream for free so fans can still enjoy America’s pastime.
“As many of us hunker down in the days ahead, it’s important that we find things that bring us together, and show us our common humanity,” Burns says.
“That’s why, in the absence of many of our favorite sports, I’ve asked PBS — the Public Broadcasting Service — to stream my film about America’s pastime, Baseball, for free.”
Each of the nine parts of the series represents an inning, like in a baseball game. The documentary covers the history of the game and it’s available to stream for free on the PBS site and apps.Play Ball!!!!
