Ken Burns: Baseball 'has always been a business'
How has big money affected America's Favorite Pastime, and has it ruined the grand old game? Burns' answer puts a check on our criticisms of the game.
He also, with the shrewd historian's eye that has made him the standard-bearer of documentary film-making, has fascinating parallels to draw between the working-class Irish and German immigrants who fed America's industrial power and the modern wave of Caribbean players feeding modern baseball.
