New documentary revisits Yankees, Mets 2000 World Series


During the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, as lockdowns shuttered the country and called an indefinite timeout on pro ball, The Last Dance, a ten-part documentary on Michael Jordan and the 1998 Chicago Bulls , gripped a sports-starved market.


Aaron Cohen apparently paid attention, as he wrote and directed When New York Was One: The Yankees, the Mets, & the 2000 World Series , a FOX Sports Films documentary set to air on FS1 at the conclusion of the NLCS.


Spike Lee on the field conjures up images of Jerry Seinfeld touring the locker room alongside Jordan.


Joe Torre, Bobby Valentine, Andy Pettitte , David Cone, Bernie Williams , Al Leiter , Edgardo Alfonzo , and Todd Zeile weigh in on the divergent rails traveled to the Subway Series, as well as the ins and outs of the games as they unfolded.


The bad blood boiled over in Game Two of the World Series, however, when Piazza shattered his bat, sending shards of lumber to the mound.


The Last Dance existed almost exclusively in the 1990s, ignoring the present moment, and at the time it aired, that’s what the country wanted.
