Sports Detectives: EPISODE 4
Gehrig's Bat, Gibson's Ball
Sports Detectives Lauren Gardner and Kevin Barrows tackle both coasts in search of two pieces of baseball history: the home run ball hit by Kirk Gibson in the 1988 World Series, and a rare bat that may once have been used by Yankee legend Lou Gehrig. Follow Lauren in L.A. as she tracks a remarkable story involving an uncle and his niece who didn't follow baseball but ended up with a million dollar ball. Then join Kevin as he puts a bat to the test to see if it indeed saw game action in the hands of the Pride of the Yankees.
