Watch Baseball by Ken Burns

With Major League Baseball on hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, PBS has made the Ken Burns’ 1994 documentary series Baseball available to stream for free. This gives fans the opportunity to relive the history of America’s favorite 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. 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.”

The 1994 documentary reveals the history of American baseball with major topics including racial justice, player/team owner relations, and the unfolding of the national pastime.

“This is a difficult time for all of us,” said Burns on Sunday. “We’re worried about the health of our kids, our families, our friends and neighbors, and the vitality and safety of our communities. It’s also a time we realize, more than ever, that we’re all in this together.” Burns added, “Stay healthy, and let’s look after each other. Play ball.”
