|In 1943 to support the overseas troops engaged in World War II, Major League Baseball created an official film recapping the World Series championship games. Since then, these official highlight films have evolved into comprehensive documentaries that include classic footage from the television broadcasts, dynamic scenes shot by the Major League Baseball Productions crews, and exclusive interviews with the key players and managers from the Fall Classic.|
This video is just one in a series of exciting and comprehensive programs. So many of the greatest moments from America’s National Pastime are captured in the World Series DVD collection: Don Larsen’s perfect game; Bill Mazeroski’s and Joe Carter’s World Series-ending home runs; the unforgettable shots of Carlton Fisk, Kirk Gibson, and Kirby Puckett; the dynastic Yankees, Cardinals, A’s, and Reds; and the underdog champions--Dodgers, Mets, and Twins. All of these Fall Classic memories, and more, are showcased in the official World Series DVD collection.
