New film to air in spring 2010
Filmmaker Ken Burns is adding a tenth inning to his nine-part “Baseball” documentary series that aired in the ’90s on public television.
PBS said Wednesday that the new film, titled “The Tenth Inning,” will air in spring 2010, along with a rebroadcast of the original nine-part “Baseball” documentary series that debuted in 1994. Meanwhile, the series is running Tuesday nights on the new MLB Network.
The new film will track baseball history from 1993 through 2008, beginning where the original series ended, and feature interviews with Felipe Alou, Joe Torre and other baseball figures.
