100 Years of Wrigley Field

The ivy walls. The hand-turned scoreboard. The iconic red marquee atop the entrance. Wrigley Field is a time capsule that harkens back to a simpler era. The Friendly Confines has been home to many greats, including Billy Williams, Ron Santo, Ferguson Jenkins, Ryne Sandberg, and of course, Ernie Banks. But the beauty of Wrigley Field lies in the experience. From neighborhood fans lining the rooftops of adjacent buildings to Harry Caray leading a rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", the ballpark's traditions are as numerous as they are timeless. This DVD celebrates a century of the greatest moments and best personalities of the ballpark on Chicago's North Side.

Catching Hell

With five outs remaining in Game 6 of the 2003 NLCS, a foul ball descended from the cold Chicago sky. As a flurry of hands reached for the ball, it was fatefully tipped away from the outstretched glove of outfielder Moises Alou, and Steve Bartman instantly became the focus of rage for long-suffering Cubs fans everywhere. Acadamy Award winner Alex Gibney explores the phenomenon of scapegoating through the lenses of two infamous moments in sports history: Bartman's ill-fated incident and Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner's fateful error in the 1986 World Series.
