Coming: PBS documentary on the A's

I was watching the local news this morning (I'm in Kansas City) and there was a lengthy piece on a new PBS documentary that's currently filming here.  Yes, it's on the A's - the Kansas City A's.

They showed some of the archive footage of the A's playing at the old Municipal Stadium, and a long informational piece on Charlie Finley ("He's still hated in Kansas City", said the reporter "for moving the team to Oakland".  Given the current state of the Royals, this might be more true now than ever).  

They're interviewing many of the former KC A's players and they spoke of the greats who played here for the A's - Roger Maris, Catfish, etc.

It looks like we'll get to see some excellent history of our favorite team soon on your local PBS station.

Here's a link to the story: Kansas City A's Documentary

As a side note, my brother-in-law was a huge A's fan when they played here.  He still has a collection of stadium giveaways from those days, including a really funky KC A's baseball bat from bat day.  Sadly, he's become a Royals fan but I'm still trying to bring him back from the brink of hopelessness.
