    Inside Fenway Park: An Icon at 100 This program celebrates the centennial of the oldest (and smallest) ballpark in America. Using a Red Sox/Yankees game as a thread, the film tells the story of Fenway's long history as a venue for sports and as a public space; masses for WWI soldiers, a 1918 Irish Republican rally, FDR's last presidential campaign speech, concerts by Bruce Springsteen and others. In 1999, it looked as if Fenway would be razed to make way for a new ballpark. Luckily, wiser heads prevailed and Boston's most popular attraction (more tourists visit Fenway than the Freedom Trail) survived. duration 56:46   SRND51 TVPG

    Jews and Baseball This program explores the connection between Jewish Americans and baseball, our nation's most iconic institution. More than a film about sports, it is a story of immigration, assimilation, bigotry, heroism, the passing on of traditions, and the shattering of stereotypes. But despite the stereotypes, and in the face of hostility from fans and even violence from opposing players, there have been standout Jewish players in every decade from the 1860s to the present. This is the first major documentary to tell their stories.
    Interviews include fans, writers, executives, and especially players - including Al Rosen, Kevin Youkilis, Shawn Green, Norm Sherry, Ron Blomberg, Bob Feller, Yogi Berra, and a rare interview with the legendary Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax. Fans Ron Howard and Larry King speak of the meaning of Jewish ballplayers in their own lives, while historians and even two baseball-loving rabbis relate the stories of Jewish players to the turbulent history of the last century. These powerful personal and historical stories are interwoven with an extraordinary collection of rare archival footage and photos, and a musical score ranging from Benny Goodman to Yo-Yo Ma to Rush. Dustin Hoffman narrates this engaging story of great drama, unforgettable games, and the broad sweep of American history.
