"All the Hall of Famers on this team certainly deserved to be there and it is great to see highlights from their illustrious careers. Also it was fitting that Pete Rose was included. I remember seeing the players get recognied before that All Star game. My only objection was the inclusion of active players. Some were only midway through their careers. It becomes an apples and oranges type of comparison and now in retrospect we my want to rethink how highly we should value the performances of all those players that used performance enhancing drugs."
Simply the best video on baseball around!

"Throughout my life the one constant that I have always enjoyed was baseball, that's why it was so easy to review this video. Major League Baseball has produced a magnificent work of art.Selecting the all time any thing team and making everyone happy it a feat that has never been accomplished before, this film is no exception. What is remarkable about this film is how close to perfect it is.Allowing the fans to vote at the end of the century detracts from the meaning of the vote, as younger fans do not have a true appreciation of the pure sense of the game itself. This fact does not detract from the overall film in any way at all.The thirty selected from the over 16,000 players who have grace the diamonds around the United Sates is a testament to the game. I am so very lucky to own one of the truly priceless videos of my generation."
A Great Gift Idea!

"This video was a great inside look at Team of the Century. I bought this video for my father (a baseball fanatic) and he loved it! No baseball lover should be without All Century Team."
My dad loves this video!

"I gave this video to my dad for his birthday last year. My sister gave him the accompaning book. He loves them and references them often. My dad lost his father 2 years ago and the greatest bond they shared was baseball. I can see the hands of time turn back as he watches the tape or turns the pages of the book. I know he wishes Grandpop was here to share it with him, but I think this helps him remember all the great memories they shared thanks to the game of baseball. He enjoys reliving those great sport moments made by the heroes of yesterday and looks foward to watching the today's heroes make their marks."
Better than average

"Overall, this is a good documentary. It has some good backstage footage of the All Century Team awards, including Pete Rose introducing his son (I think) to Ken Griffey, Jr. It's been a while since I watched it, so I don't recall some specific details, but I do remember it being a little brief with each player's biography. It's good for any baseball fan, but I guess I was just expecting a little more from it."
