Synopsis by Mark Deming
The first century of one of America's most legendary baseball teams is chronicled in this documentary on the Boston Red Sox. Boston Red Sox: 100 Years of Baseball History follows the team's ups and down throughout the years, including profiles of such legendary Red Sox alumni as Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Carl Yastrzemski, Carlton Fisk, and Pedro Martinez; a look at the long-time rivalry between the Red Sox and the New York Yankees; the fabled "curse" that has kept the team from winning the World Series; and the loyal fans who have always stood by their team. The film also looks at the announcers who have covered the team, some of the stranger moments to be captured by cameras during Red Sox games, and a rare chat between Ted Williams and Pedro Martinez.
