5.0 out of 5 stars Seen on PBS, 3/20/11, March 21, 2011
This review is from: Jews and Baseball: An American Love Story (DVD)
I saw this on the PBS channel last night, 3/20/11, as part of the channel's fund raising efforts,and it was excellent! The footage of the games, the interviews with key players as well as fans like Ron Howard, were very well done and gave you an insight into the by-gone days of America's favorite pastime. An interesting account of how Jewish players were perceived in those days, something I was not aware of, and how they kept their dignity throughout it all. A touching story of how Hank Greenberg befriended Jackie Robinson and encouraged him to dismiss jeers from the crowd and stay in the game... Jackie Robinson called Hank a class act. Nice to see a NEW documentary on baseball. I was very impressed.
