  • "Major League Legends" on Smithsonian Channel

    This is a four-part series chronicling Hank Aaron, Ted Williams, Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. The first episode airs Monday, Feb. 29 at 8:00PM EST.

    "They were mythical gods of the stadium who symbolized the American Dream. No one in baseball could match the power, the popularity, the consistency, or the durability of Hank Aaron, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, and Lou Gehrig. But their accomplishments on the field only tell part of their remarkable stories. Narrated by Martin Sheen, Major League Legends goes beyond the highlight reels. Join us as we examine these men's lives before, during, and after they came up to the plate and swung their way into American history."

    They call me Mr. Baseball. Not because of my love for the game; because of all the stitches in my head.

    I've got the first two recorded and need to watch them. I didn't know it was only a four episode arc. I was hoping for at least 30, so that by the end they could branch out to slightly less well known players.

      I watched the Hank Aaron episode, and I wasn't that impressed. I'm impressed with Aaron, but not the program.

        I watched the first episode for 35 of the 60 minutes before deleting it. Roughly 3/4 related to the general racism of the era and more frustratingly "the mythology of the hero (Henry Aaron)." Much less baseball or general Aaron detail. I was told by a family member that the Ruth episode was even worse. Deleted it too.
