    A great documentary on the Mavericks. There is great footage of 1970’s minor league baseball, monochrome uniforms and player interviews. I would have loved to understand the exact reason why so many people came out to Civic Stadium for games during the Mavs’ era compared to when Triple-A baseball returned.
