Summary
In 1918 the Boston Red Sox won their fifth World Series, thanks in great part to a young pitching and hitting sensation from the slums of Baltimore, named George Herman Ruth, a.k.a. The Babe, or The Bambino. A year later, after not advancing to the playoffs, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold the Babe to the New York Yankees. In turn, the Bronx Bombers went on to win an incredible 26 World Series titles. The Sox finally won a Series in 2004, and the stories of their die-hard, long-suffering fans are told with insight and humor. This film focuses on the joy and shock of those fans who lived to see the breaking of the infamous "Curse of the Bambino."
