The Curious Case of Curt Flood

Duration :

91

Summary: In the history of American sports, there are a handful of athletes--Jesse Owens, Jackie Robinson, Muhammad Ali, among them--whose impact resonated beyond the game. Curt Flood belongs on this list. A star player for the Cardinals in the 1960s, Flood is best remembered for risking his career to take on Major League Baseball in court over its so-called "Reserve Clause," which bound players to their respective teams in perpetuity. This film explores the life of this highly articulate man whose decision to fight baseball destroyed his career and made him a pariah to the sport he loved. (TV14) (AC,AL)
