Baseball season with the New York Yankees and the New York Mets won’t start today, on what would have been Opening Day. So here’s your next best bet. As Sam Barsanti writes at AV Club, “PBS and the world’s preeminent director of extremely watchable and extremely long documentaries have a special treat: The entirety of Ken Burns’ Baseball—over 18 hours—is now available to stream for free on the PBS website and all of its related apps.”
It’s no coincidence that Burns’ documentary becomes free during COVID-19. On Twitter, Burns adds: “With events canceled & so much closed, I asked @PBS to stream Baseball for free so we can participate in the national pastime together.
Watch at the link below or on any streaming device. And please look out for those with greater needs. Play ball.”
