It was the only comeback in sports history from 3-0 down highlighted by one of the gutsiest performances in baseball history. It's definitely worthy of a documentary regardless of how you feel about either team.


Weren't there one or two 3-0 comeback series wins in the NHL?
I'm not disputing that there should be an ALCS 2004 documentary. Just saying typical ESPN and the '88 Dodgers should have their own documentary (it's also much more interesting ;-)). Shoot, Kirk Gibson's at-bat deserves a full two hours. :-b


Yes the Flyers came down from 3-0 against Boston last playoffs...while being down 3-0 in game 4 to win it 4-3. That was amazing :-L

I'm pretty sure these are independently done and picked up by ESPN, with every single one having a different director that was somehow associated with the event or person depicted. Don't be mad that LA is NY's kid brother that we beat up when we're bored. ;-)

Yeah I'm pretty sure directors were approached and allowed to do what they wanted. They started doing on one the Dodgers, but everyone left the set 3/4 the way through to beat traffic.
