Ken Burns The Tenth Inning Giveaway

Bullpen BrianCorrespondent IOctober 5, 2010

Name your favorite baseball memories from the past 17 years.

Lots to choose from, I know. There’s Cal Ripken’s record streak, the great home run chase of 1998 and Boston’s stunning comeback against New York in the 2004 ALCS, just to name a few.

Whatever the memory, share it with us in the comments section below to qualify for a signed copy of Ken Burns’ and Lynn Novick’s film The Tenth Inning–a two part, four hour mini series showcasing the game’s tumultuous history, greatest stars, and unforgettable moments over the past 17 seasons.

I watched the documentary last week and loved every minute of it. The scenes of mid-90s baseball rekindled vivid memories of my childhood. I watched non-stop, worried it would end any minute.

There’s a lot to capture in 17 years of baseball, but for the most part, Burns nailed it. Yes, it’s a little steroid heavy, but looking back decades from now, that will be the story of the era, and that’s the story Burns tells.

Meanwhile, my memory to share. I’ll always remember the excitement I felt the night Ken Griffey Jr. raced home to score the winning run against New York in the 1995 ALDS. My favorite player beating my favorite enemy—priceless.

My dad and I watched the drama unfold on a tiny television in his bedroom. I jumped off the water bed when Junior slid home–safe! The damn Yanks were no more, and Seattle “refused to lose.” What a great game, what a great memory.

Look forward to reading yours, too.

*Give-a-way is on a first-come first-serve basis. Supplies of DVDs are limited. Good luck!
