Awful 80's-era TV production

(2 out of 5 stars)
"I give this DVD 5 stars for baseball, but zero for its simply awful 80's-era TV production styles. The main problem with this video is that the majority of at-bats are NOT shown. So you have no way of really following how the games developed. Only key plays are shown, but usually you are just dropped into the situation (runners, outs, etc.). The rest of the time is filled with some truly awful musical sequences of players and fans.
For the baseball that is actually shown, this video is a lot better than nothing. You get some great moments with Whitey, Ozzie, Willie, and a the rest of the Cardinals 80's-era greats. But you also have the pain of watching the Cardinals loose two of three World Series.
For the record, I'd like to say that Don Denkinger's call at first in game 6 of the '85 series was completely and utterly wrong. This video proves it."
