|The 1985 World Series championship was the crowning moment for the Kansas City Royals franchise. In the nine years from 1976 to 1984, the Royals made the postseason six times, but each time they were thwarted. Then in 1985, the club overcame a late season deficit to win the American League West Division, rallied from a 3-games-to-1 deficit to defeat Toronto in the ALCS, and capped the delirious ride with a World Series history-making victory over the rival St. Louis Cardinals. Managed by the even-keeled Dick Howser and led by veteran stars George Brett, Frank White, Dan Quisenberry, and Willie Wilson, the Royals persevered and conquered their cross-state opponents behind the precocious pitching of young superstar Bret Saberhagen.|
The seven games in this remarkable DVD collection showcase the rollercoaster of intra-state emotions as the Cardinals flew out to grab three quick wins in the first four games, only to have the Royals capture the final three games in oh-so-dramatic fashion. For the first time ever on DVD, the Major League Baseball Productions Film and Video Archive has opened to reveal these remarkable games that capture the beauty of mid-1980s Royals Stadium, a roster of all-time Royals stars, and a battle of players, managers, and intra-state cities that delighted a nation.
