There is an examination of social events with interviews of former Negro League players such as Larry Doby, the first African American player to break the color line in the American league. We also hear from Jim "Mudcat" Grant who in 1965 became the first black pitcher to win a World Series game in the junior circuit. Hank Aaron explains the challenge of breaking Babe Ruth's home run record wasn't only on the diamond. There is an examination of the war years when 500 major-league players served in the armed forces during WWII. Prominent players such as Bob Feller, Cecil Travis, Tommy Henrich and Jerry Coleman talk about their experience and sacrifice without fanfare.Bobby Thompson and Ralph Branca address the "Shot Heard Round the World" in the Giants vs Dodgers playoff of 1951. Bill Mazeroski tells us what went through his mind as he watched his game seven walk off home run win the fall classic for his Pittsburgh Pirates, and Pitcher Bob Gibson brings you back to 1968 and the year of the pitcher when he finished with an ERA of 1.12. It is certainly an All - Star lineup of not only great baseball players but outstanding men who were gracious enough to look back at a time when they displayed talent and heart for the game.
