S1 E8: Part 8: A Whole New Ball Game

The 1960s are a turbulent decade for America and turbulent decade for baseball, as one by one its "sacred" institutions fall. Inning Eight, A Whole New Ball Game, moves the field to the 1960s. This episode traces the emergence of television, the expansion to new cities and the building of anonymous multipurpose stadiums that robbed the game of its intimacy and some of its urban following.
