Baseball movies: Eight Men Out, the Glory of Their Times, Game 6

Baseball is the sport of choice on this episode of Game Film. Hosts Os Davis and Aron Harris take a look at:

• Eight Men Out (1995) – Director John Sayles deploys a star-studded ensemble cast to depict the story of the “Black Sox” scandal during the 1919 World Series;

• The Glory of their Times (1970) – an hour-long documentary on baseball and the surrounding environment in America between 1900 and ’20 and

• Game 6 (2005) – an obscure independent film centered on a playwright (Michael Keaton), whose new Broadway play opens the same night as his beloved Boston Red Sox play the New York Mets in the fateful game six of the 1986 World Series.
