DESCRIPTION:
(from Smithsonian Channel's press release, March 2016) Wilt Chamberlain's 100-point ball. Dale Earnhardt's legendary pink race car. The American flag draped around goalie Jim Craig after the "Miracle on Ice." All of those historic objects from indelible moments in sports are either lost or in dispute. Now, Smithsonian Channel debuts a unique six-hour docu-series, SPORTS DETECTIVES, on Sunday, April 24 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, to try to hunt down the truth of what happened and find missing treasures behind some of the most iconic moments in American sports history. Stories in SPORTS DETECTIVES are told through first-hand accounts from the players, managers, announcers, and fans who witnessed sports history unfold. With state-of-the-art technology, sports analysis, and real-life detective work, SPORTS DETECTIVES plunges into the moments that made these objects so coveted, piecing together the evidence for what happened and why. The series enlists the investigative acumen of Lauren Gardner, a CBS Sports Network reporter, and Kevin Barrows - a top private investigator and former FBI Agent who took down the mob on Wall Street in one of the biggest securities fraud cases in U.S. history - who has served as a security and investigative consultant for professional sports leagues. Together, they seek to find and confirm the lost items while unearthing new details on these events that have transcended their sports.
