Movie Reviews

A Second Dose Of "Derby" Never Hurt Anybody .... And "Volume
David Von Pein | Mooresville, Indiana; USA | 09/27/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Volume 2 of "Home Run Derby" was released on DVD on August 14, 2007, and it's an even better bargain than Volume 1, because the second volume has 9 total episodes (vs. eight on the first DVD).

This second "Home Run Derby" Digital Disc takes us back to 1959-1960, where we get to watch such big-league icons as Henry Aaron, Duke Snider, Eddie Mathews, Frank Robinson, and Al Kaline swinging for the Wrigley Field fences. (Wrigley Field in Los Angeles, California, that is.)

This "Volume 2" DVD also features an amazing battle between two sluggers that aren't nearly as well-known -- Wally Post and Dick Stuart. The Post vs. Stuart "Derby", in fact, is absolutely incredible (I won't put in any spoilers here, however). But it's a contest that features some things that seem more akin to a "Mantle vs. Mays" match-up. Great stuff.

The black-and-white video quality is pretty good for "Derby" Volume Two, with the picture being displayed in its original Full-Frame format (1.33:1). Audio comes to us via very serviceable Dolby Digital 2.0 Mono DVD soundtracks. A "Play All" feature is on the disc too.

The third and final DVD installment in this series of home-run-hitting contests was made available to the public on September 25, 2007, and it's a good disc too, with the last 9 "Derby" programs being presented, with Willie Mays' ample fence-bashing talents taking center stage in several of those "Volume 3" shows.

Home run derby vol. 2

(5 out of 5 stars)

"this is a must for baseball fans of past years...to see aaron, mantle, snider, mays, in their old uniforms and in the prime of their playing years is worth the cost. to make note of the different style of batting follow through will make you think. it's also funny to hear someone try to make a tv cast with a empty park sound like this is important game, even through it is hard not to laugh at the interviews with these baseball greats because you can see they really don't give 2 cents about what is going on !!1"

"Great nostalgia in all 3 volumes of Home Run Derby. Here's who appeared on each DVD, ranked by how many homers they hit. To limit the "spoiler" effect I won't list the number of home runs hit by each player.

Vol. 2 (84 home runs in 9 contests) Dick Stuart, Hank Aaron, Wally Post, Frank Robinson, Bob Cerv, Eddie Mathews, Bob Allison, Gus Triandos, Duke Snider, Al Kaline.

Vol. 3 (123 home runs in 9 contests) Willie May, Jackie Jensen, Ernie Banks, Mickey Mantle, Gil Hodges, Bob Allison, Harmon Killebrew, Jim Lemon, Bob Cerv, Rocky Colavito."
