The Day the Series Stopped

Ryan Fleck's The Day the Series Stopped, an entry in the ever expanding and exponentially uninteresting 30 for 30 series, is a disappointing, completely vague look back how game 3 of the 1989 World Series (fought between the A's and Giants, Bay Area ball clubs) was thunderously disrupted and brought to a crashing halt. With great access to footage the film never amounts to much and only succeeds in replicating the disorientation and confusion that must have been experienced during the catastrophe.
