Pride and perseverance : the story of the Negro Leagues( Visual )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the Negro Leagues is often a forgotten part of baseball history. Despite its popularity and wealth of talent, the era was not well documented. This documentary sheds light on this period and shows how it laid the groundwork for today's African-American players in Major League Baseball. With rarely seen footage from the 1920s through 1950s, these extraordinary stories illustrate the birth of the Negro Leagues and depict both the struggles endured and milestones achieved by its players. The film also highlights Negro League innovations that helped shape modern day baseball, such as the Leagues' usage of portable light towers to enable games to be played after dusk for the first time ever

The 2005 World Series film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 72 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 2005 World Series, the Chicago White Sox became the latest long-suffering team to celebrate a championship for the first time since World War I, beating the Houston Astros in a four-game sweep. Houston, which finally won a pennant for the first time since it joined the National League in 1962, became the first team swept in its Series debut. While the Windy City celebrated the White Sox--who hadn't won a Series since 1917 and hadn't played in one since 1959--fans didn't get to enjoy a single celebration in person, as the division title and all three rounds of the postseason were won on the road, a baseball first. No longer will the White Sox be remembered for Shoeless Joe Jackson's Black Sox, who threw the 1919 Series against Cincinnati, but rather as champions -- improbable as that might seem
