Up for Grabs

Up for Grabs ★★½ 2005

The story of the controversy over ownership of Barry Bonds's recordsetting homer is actually more interesting than all the hype leading up to the historymaking hit. Following the frenzied scramble for the ball, two men stepped forward into the spotlight—one with the ball and the other claiming he had caught the ball only to have it ripped from his hand in the ensuing struggle. Using news footage of the event as well as eyewitness accounts, documentarian Michael Wranovics shines a light on the absurd clash, which ends up with the two parties in court. 88m/C DVD . USD: Michael Wranovics; W: Michael Wranovics; C: Zack Richard, Josh Keppel.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
