It's Burns' own dopey fault for picking baseball as his subject matter. You can see that it's easier to stick to dead subject matter (Jazz, The Civil War) that poses no risk of any continuing narrative whatsoever.

Post-punk indie rock would have to be on that list soon (if not now).

...

But as long as he's going to do sports ... why not Ken Burns : Ice Hockey?

While we're at it, I think the definitive cricket documentary has yet to be filmed.

...

Narrator? Garrison Keillor, of course!

...

I love The Onion. The moon landing front page from Our Dumb Century justified the entire venture.
