“Four Days in October,” an ESPN 30 for 30 film directed by Gary Waksman, dives deep into the tumultuous 2004 American League Championship Series between the storied rivals, the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. On the chilly night of October 16, with the Yankees leading the series 3-0 thanks to the prowess of A-Rod, Jeter, and Sheffield, victory seemed a foregone conclusion.
However, as the winds of change began to swirl, the Red Sox, propelled by the indomitable spirits of Curt Schilling, David Ortiz, and Dave Roberts, embarked on a historic comeback. Through meticulously curated archival footage, this film takes viewers on a “real-time” expedition across those four transformative days, shattering the haunting Curse of the Bambino and delivering redemption to the Red Sox Nation.
