"any real baseball fan for that matter. 1980 was one of the truly magical seasons in baseball lore and no team exemplified the "Never Say Die" attitude like the 'Phightin' Phils". Schmidty, The Bull, Charlie Hustle, Shake and Bake, Gary Lee, Bowa, Trillo, Boone, Lefty and The Tugger -- talk about a talented cast of characters. And that's exactly what they were -- Characters. The team had plenty of personality and exuded the kind of confidence that makes ordinary teams special. Dallas Green was the perfect manager for this bunch and their accomplishments on the field made a city full of frustrated diehards chomping at the bit for a winner stand up and respond with one voice -- WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!
With regard to the DVD itself, the two documentaries are nearly worth the asking price alone, but to have the added bonus of Game 5 of the NLCS against Houston and Game Six of the World Series against Kansas City -- in their entirety -- well you couldn't ask for anything more.
The '80 Phillies made my 6th grade year one of the most memorable of my childhood and it's about time that remarkable team be immortalized like this. Thank you "Video" Dan Stephenson and the Phillies for making this loyal fan very happy.
Great Phillies Documentary

"This set is a truly great must own DVD for any Phillies fan who wants to relive the unforgettable 1980 season. The two documentaries in the DVD are very good ones. One is the classic MLB Documentary of the 1980 world series and the other is a wonderful Phillies documentary which looks into that entire year in detail. Having Game 5 of the NLCS and Game Six of the World Series is awesome as both are exiting games with many memorable moments.
The 1980 Phillies team was called the Team that would not die and the same can be said about this DVD. You'll keep watching it over and over again as it is that good."
