In case you have not heard, the baseball season starts going tomorrow. In honor of today being the eve of baseball season, today I review a baseball themed TV “show”. Today I review one of the worst documentaries for a Yankees fan, Four Days in October.
This documentary is not a good one to watch for me, but it is extremely well done. The documentary recaps the greatest collapse in Sports history, when the Yankees blew a 3-0 lead in the 2004 ALCS against the Red Sox. The collapse (Yes, I will refer to it as a collapse, and not a comeback, because I hate the Red Sox) took place over four days, thus the name of the documentary. The major characters of the documentary are Bill Simmons, along with the players on the Red Sox. The documentary starts with Game 4 and the Dave Roberts steal, which started the collapse of the Yankees. At the time of that ALCS, the Yankees were everything the Red Sox wanted to be and that all changed in the next four days.
The documentary is an ESPN 30 for 30 production and now can be found on Netflix is a must watch baseball related TV Show/Documentary. There have not been many baseball related TV shows, so the documentaries make up majority of baseball related TV content.
The official rating on the documentary is 92%, taking points off simply because it is documenting a collapse of my Yankees.
