Baseball Returns!

Ken Burns' Emmy Award winning series returns to APT Sunday afternoons this summer. Come on out to the ballpark!


Four years after the debut of his groundbreaking series THE CIVIL WAR, Ken Burns explored the epic story of BASEBALL. Told in nine episodes representing the innings in a baseball game, the series unfolds chronologically from the earliest days of the game into the 1980s, filled with the compelling personal stories that Burns and his team are so good at telling.  While today's teams take their turns on the diamond this summer, Ken Burns' BASEBALL provides a wonderful long view of "America's pastime."

"The story of baseball is also the story of race in America, of immigration and assimilation; of the struggle between labor and management, of popular culture and advertising, of myth and the nature of heroes, villains, and buffoons; of the role of women and class and wealth in our society," said Ken Burns. "The game is a repository of age-old American verities, of standards against which we continually measure ourselves, and yet at the same time a mirror of the present moment in our modern culture — including all of our most contemporary failings."
