Amazing Sports Stories

Amazing Sports Stories

Part movie, part documentary, FSN's newest program, "AMAZING SPORTS STORIES", promises to touch the heart and soul of every sports fan. Using dramatic re-enactments, archival footage as well as interviews with historians and living principals, each of the 13 half-hour episodes focuses on an athlete or team whose unbelievable story has been lost in the annals of time.

Be it the boxer who rose from his deathbed for one last fight to give his family a special Christmas, the baseball player turned World War II fighter pilot who overcame extraordinary odds to become the only man to play in a major league game on one leg or the two rival NFL teams that merged into one team to save the league from going out of business, the profiles showcased in "AMAZING SPORTS STORIES" are insightful, fascinating and often inspirational.

Created and executive produced by Bruce Nash, "AMAZING SPORTS STORIES" airs every Sunday night at 8 p.m. local. A hybrid combination of a mini-movie and a documentary, "AMAZING SPORTS STORIES" is unlike anything seen on FSN before.

"The stories on our show are going to surprise even the most diehard sports fans," said Nash, who has written more than 40 sports books and is a prolific television producer. "We've all heard stories about the greats of the game, but we're going to introduce viewers to obscure stories and little-known characters they've probably never heard of — like Mysterious Montague, golf's greatest con man and teenage pitching sensation Jackie Mitchell, the girl who struck out Babe Ruth."
