Fox To Air Documentary Series On Legendary MLB Events During Post-Season

By Barry Janoff

October 2, 2018: As part of its coverage of MLB’s 2018 post-season, Fox Sports will air a series of documentaries that focus on “legendary player moments” in the game’s history, including those involving Kirk Gibson, Vin Scully, Jim Abbott and Aaron Boone.

Three one-hour specials will air in October: Walk-Off Stories: Improbably Gibson (debut Oct. 7), Set Apart: The Jim Abbott Story (debut Oct. 14) and Walk-Off Stories: From a Battle to a War (debut Oct. 21) on Fox and FS1, with additional airings to follow.

“Fox Sports’ long-running partnership with Major League Baseball creates incredible original storytelling opportunities for our team,” Charlie Dixon, evp-content at Fox Sports, said via the network.

“These three October baseball documentaries, featuring unique moments and athletes, add a different perspective and amplify our brand’s coverage of the sport’s most exciting month.”

Fox Sports is supporting with multi-media marketing, including TV, digital and social media.

Improbably Gibson looks behind the scenes of Kirk Gibson’s historic walk-off home run for the Los Angeles Dodgers against the Oakland A’s  in Game 1 of the 1988 World Series.

It includes footage and interviews from such players, coaches, broadcasters, and fans as Gibson, Dennis Eckersley (who threw the pitch to Gibson), Orel Hershiser, and Vin Scully, who made the now iconic call on the home run shot: "High fly ball into right field. She is gone! . . . In a year that has been so improbable, the impossible has happened."

The Jim Abbott Story chronicles the life of Abbott, born without a right hand, who pitched a no-hitter in Yankee Stadium in 1993.

From a Battle to a War looks at the  2003 ALCS Game 7 battle between the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees, which ended with a Yankees win via Aaron Boone’s walk-off home run in extra innings. It includes interviews from current Yankees manager Boone, David Ortiz, Joe Buck, Mariano Rivera and Billy Crystal.

Fox Sports MLB post-season coverage includes the NL Division Series, NL Championship Series and the World Series, with Game 1 scheduled for Oct.23.
