Catching Hell: The Steve Bartman Incident

Catching Hell is the latest of ESPN’s 30 for 30 documentary series. 

Filmmaker Alex Gibney examines the story of Steve Bartman, the unassuming lifelong Cubs fan who became a national pariah after interfering with a foul ball in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS.  Bartman managed to avoid a physical altercation but it was a tense situation which could have easily turned violent.
