KEN BURNS RUMORS & GOSSIP

‘Baseball as It Was’ Episode #25: Carl Erskine

Jackie, Pee Wee, Duke, Campanella, and Hodges – names that still resonate strongly in the borough of Brooklyn and make up one of the most indelible teams in baseball history. Another name that will long be remembered is Carl Erskine, a right-hander who threw two no-hitters, won 20 games in 1953, and set a then-World Series single game record that same year with 14 strikeouts. But...

First Gay MLB Umpire Came Out and the Crowd Went Mild

Earlier this week, while watching Ken Burns’ Baseball on MLB Network, I noticed something in the crawl at the bottom of the screen about “first openly gay umpire comes out.”  Well, isn’t that nice, I thought to myself before continuing to go about my non-business.  Surely it’s a testament to how far we’ve come as a society that news of a gay official in a major sport...

Q&A: Greenburg explains new doc, ‘Forgotten Four’

Ed Note: This post appears courtesy the National Sports Journalism Center. It is inevitable that Ken Burns’ name would be brought up during the course of a conversation with Ross Greenburg on documentaries. “He is the master,” Greenburg said. “I don’t have the same moniker that he has, but I like to think we have similar styles.” I quickly had to throw a flag on Greenburg...

Greatest MLB Moments on the Fourth of July

The Great Buck O’Neil

If you’re like me, most of us had first heard of John “Buck” O’Neil in Ken Burns groundbreaking 1994 documentary Baseball. What really impressed me was the way he told his story- it was almost as if he could weave a ball of yarn into a silk table cloth with the English language. Before you knew it, hours had passed in a flash and the show was over and it left me thinking...

VIdeo: ESPN personalities recite the Gettysburg Address

My favorite college class was Civil War History.  Why was it my favorite college class you ask?  Because nearly the entire course consisted of watching Ken Burns’ famed Civil War documentary.  You can have Gus Johnson or Ian Darke or even Morgan Freeman to narrate your life, but I would take Shelby Foote above anyone else.  If you haven’t seen the Civil War series yet, and...
