A Must for ANY Baltimore Orioles Fan

"As a fan of the Baltimore Orioles, we really haven't had much to cheer about in the last ten years.
It's nice that MLB put the World Series Films from all three Orioles championships on one DVD.
Each film runs about 40 minutes long with highlights from each game.
1966 - The Orioles shock the world and beat the favored LA Dodgers behind the masterful pitching of Jim Palmer, Wally Bunker, and Dave McNally. Homeruns from Paul Blair, and Brooks and Frank Robinson helped too.
1970 - Possibly the best team in Birds history. McNally, Palmer, and Mike Cuellar provide the pitching. Boog Powell and the Robinsons provide the power to beat the mighty Big Red Machine with Pete Rose, Johnny Bench, and Tony Perez.
1983 - The last hurrah. The Birds have a brilliant mix of veterans like Rick Dempsey and Jim Palmer, and young players Eddie Murray and Cal Ripken Jr. to beat the Philadelphia Phillies in five.
Next year will be 25 long years since the last championship.
As for the MLB logo at the top of the screen mentioned by the other reviewer. I agree, it's completely unnecessary, but after like five minutes, you really don't notice it.
Don't let that prevent you from two hours of Baltimore Orioles glory."
