“Inning By Inning,” directed by Richard Linklater, delves into the life and philosophy of the Texas Longhorns baseball coach, Augie Garrido. Touted as the most successful coach in NCAA baseball history, Garrido boasts five national titles and a record number of wins in Division 1A.
The documentary, aired on ESPN, offers a unique perspective on Garrido’s coaching approach. Rather than fixating on victories, it emphasizes his attention to the nuances of the game and the joy of playing. Interviews with Garrido and former players underscore his emphasis on playing baseball the “right way” and the documentary features both “censored” and “uncensored” audio options due to Garrido’s occasional fiery outbursts.
