Watch Baseball The Tenth Inning online: Episode 1 Back to the Ballpark: An Interview with Ken Burns and Lynn Nivick

This piece features the directors discussing the origins of their baseball documentary; the way in which Baseball is, in a way, a sequel to The Civil War and a reflection of American history and the country's narrative; the reason for making a tenth inning supplement; the original series' premiere that ran up against the 1994 strike; the journalists, players, managers, and others who provided their insights for the 10th; the challenge of capturing the essence of the steroid era; the dynamic that sees Nivick as a Yankees fan and Burns a Red Sox fan; the uniqueness of the sport; and the family connections the sport engenders.
