Docuseries - Major League Baseball
The great Ted Williams once said, that hitting a baseball, striking a round ball with a round bat, was the single most difficult thing to do in sports. But with all due respect, the splendid splinter was wrong.
Making it to the majors is a 1000 times harder.

And yet, still they come. From every corner of this country and others. Chasing the American dream in the archetypically American game. Running down destiny like a fly ball at the warning track.
But what drives them against such seemingly insurmountable odds? What stokes that kind of inner fire?What talent and intangibles take a guy from the minors, all the way to… The Show?
