An unforgettable account of the epic Baseball World Series between the celebrated Los Angeles Dodgers and the perennial underdog Baltimore Orioles. Nobody expected the Orioles to have a chance - after all, by 1966, the Dodgers had replaced the Yankees as the dominant team in baseball, winning two of the previous three World Series. Few outside Baltimore gave the Orioles more than a fighting chance to win.

What transpired over four games astonished and mesmerised a nation in turmoil. Baltimore's young pitchers shredded the veteran Dodgers lineup, setting Major League records along the way. Nobody had ever seen dominant pitching like this before: in the entire Series the Dodgers scored only two runs and collected a mere 17 hits. Their team batting average was a lowly 0.142 and - incredibly - for the last 33 innings of the Series they were held completely scoreless.
