Episode Summary

As the new millenium dawns, baseball on the field is better than ever before. In an era of offense, Pedro Martinez and a handful of other pitchers still manage to dominate. Ichiro Suzuki proves that Asian players can be superstars, while Barry Bonds becomes one of the most dominant hitters of all time. In the fall of 2001, when a badly frightened country yearns for normalcy, baseball helps provide it. In an epic battle with the Yankees, the benighted Boston Red Sox stage the greatest comeback in history. Baseball is more popular and profitable than ever, but suspicions and revelations about performance enhancing drugs keep surfacing, calling the integrity of the game itself into question.moreless
