When It Was A Game, the home-run series for baseball fans, returns for another glorious inning with an exciting and colorful new program narrated by L. Schreiber: When It Was A Game 3.

This retrospective look at the changing face of baseball in America takes on the 1960's, a time many believe was the last decade of baseball's innocence.

Though Mickey Mantle, Roger Maris and the powerful New York Yankees led off the decade with four straight World Series appearances, by 1964 they were headed for the showers.With the integration of baseball, spearheaded by Jackie Robinson in 1947, black superstars fueled the sport's growth and a fresh Latin presence brought a new spirit to the game.New names of the 60's that neighborhood kids had to have in their card collection would include the likes of Willie Mays, Roberto Clemente and Sandy Koufax.

When It Was A Game 3 features never-before-seen home movies and vintage photographs with memorable storytelling that bring this incredible period to life.Interviews from the field include Tim McCarver, Hank Aaron, Frank Robinson, Bob Gibson and Juan Marachal and from the stands, fans and sports writers include Billy Crystal, Geraldo Rivera and Bob Costas.
