Product Description
The tragedy and horror of the 9/11 attacks triggered a host of changes in America, including a reassessment of the role of sports and its accompanying hero-worship. Batting averages and home run totals were no longer paramount, particularly in New York, but in the fall of 2001 baseball played a significant role in the city's recovery efforts. Nine Innings from Ground Zero revisits that remarkable and inspiring phenomenon.

    5Great video that shows what it is to be an American
    By Trish
    In September 2001, my son was four years old. On 9/11/2008 I took him to NYC for a visit to see one of the last Yankees games in the old stadium. I showed my son (a Yankees fan) this video in order to help tell the story of 9/11 and what our country went through. We went to ground zero on the day we arrived, and the video helped him to understand what he saw. It was a great way to share a dark piece of American history while showing our resilience and the role that his beloved Yankees played in it. I recommend this video for anyone who is a baseball lover, or who just wants to see a "feel good" story that shows what it means to be an American.

    5Nine Innnings from Ground Zero
    By Joseph Dougherty
    Wonderful documentary that ties together the healing process of the 9/11 tragedy, that began during the stretch run of the 2001 baseball season, and carried through a remarkable World Series. Certainly too many of those wounds will never heal, but this movie does demonstrates the beauty of the American spirit in a magnificent way.

    5Our Pastime!
    By JD Daltry
    Nine Innings From Ground Zero says a lot, shows a lot. Smiles, tears, laughter, joy, and sorrow. Narration is spot on sympathetic and poignant without being overly maudlin. Lot's of stuff in here you may have forgotten, or see for the first time. You need not be a New York Yankees fan to feel the enormous emotion as you see our former President grace the pitcher's mound in pride, defiance, humor, and care...and throw a strike right into the heart of the enemy, and our conscience.
