Long Description: 
THE GOLDEN GAME: BASEBALL IN SACRAMENTO nostalgically recounts Sacramento's 150-year baseball history: its early teams and ballparks, the players, important victories, unresolved controversies and unforgettable moments. Among other highlights, the film chronicles the Sacramento Solons' dramatic come-from-behind victory against rival Los Angeles for the 1942 Pacific Coast League series title, the mysterious fire at Edmonds Field (and why some believe the team set it), and the 2000 opening of Raley Field, home of the triple-A champion River Cats. Contemporary footage and archival stills from baseball's early days, along with comments from former players, game announcers, historians and fans, reveal the indelible impression baseball has left on Sacramento and the mark Sacramento has left on the game.
