Baseball in Pensacola recounts the bayside area's history with the game as far back as the late 1800s. As Pensacola began to grow in prosperity with tourism and industry, so did the endeavors of the city to be a proving ground for budding players and a challenging training arena for veterans of America's most beloved game. Pensacola fielded its own professionally organized teams, which offered not only quality entertainment for thousands of fans, but also a stepping stone into the world of the Big Leagues. The documentary is the backdrop for discovering some of Pensacola's most legendary baseball figures including Billy Sunday, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Ty Cobb, Babe Ruth, Branch Rickey, Ted Williams, Cal Ripkin Sr, Don Sutton, Buck Showalter, Jay Bell, Travis Fryman and many more.
