Movie Reviews

TV Sports Series
D. Green | Umatilla, Or. USA | 11/20/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is the final DVD in the TV Series. It's a great DVD for the younger generation to watch because of the older baseball players that aren't around anymore and most have only heard of their names. It's a simple series in a much simpler time and I think the biggest aspect of this series is the players are doing it all naturally, no steroid enhancement!! It's sure worth a look and for any baseball enthusiast it's a nice addition to your collection."
How About That?
Mr. Richard D. Coreno | Berea, Ohio USA | 06/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Talk about a stroll down memory lane, the episodes are from a TV show that was taped at Wrigley Field (a minor-league ballpark) in Los Angeles, California, and featured the home-spun commentary of Mark Scott and the distinct calls from umpire Art Passarella.

Originally aired in 1959, the program has had nine-lives for the nine-inning contests, with it being shown in syndication, on Fox Sports Net, and on ESPN Classic, the last time being in 2005 on the latter.

With such sluggers as Bob Cerv, Ken Boyer, Mickey Mantle, Duke Snider, Willie Mays, Henry Aaaon and Gus Triandos, it was truly a showcase of stars in a timeless game of seeing who can lay the heaviest lumber on the baseball.

The DVD is the third of three volumes, which is the complete season of shows. This is a classic round-tripper that will keep the hot-stove league burning throughout the year."
Great look at times past

(4 out of 5 stars)

"Nice look at baseball back in the day. Filmed in 1959 at Wrigley Field in LA, this series is not exactly action packed. The production values indicate clearly that this is a new medium at the time. That said, its great to see oldies like Aaron, Killebrew, a sober Mickey Mantle, Mays and others (including the reknowned Dick "Dr Strangeglove" Stuart - who made 29 errors at 1st base in 1963)get excited about winning $500.00 for hitting 3 HR in a row, or the $2000 prize for winning the contest. Each player sits with the host while the other is batting. All three volumes constitute the entire series I believe, so its best to get all of them. The titles "Mays" or "Mantle" or "Aaron" don't really mean much. Each volume follows the show in order."
