The Cheers from Municipal Stadium

"The archival footage is incredibly sharp and the presentation is in newsreel form from this magical season for player-manager Lou Boudreau and a city that not only embraced the club, but whose fans helped set a number of Major League Baseball attendance records in the cavernous Municipal Stadium.
The club - paced by such legends as Satchel Paige, Larry Doby, Bob Lemon, Bob Feller and Ken Keltner - snatched the American League pennant by winning a "sudden-victory" playoff game with the Boston Red Sox and then defeated the Boston Braves in the World Series.
This is a great stride down memory lane when Bill Veeck ruled the city through his innovative gimmicks to keep baseball on the front pages of the daily newspapers and the team delivered an incredible season on the diamond.
