Giants fans, this was the pinnacle of your franchise! This rare DVD features Major League Baseball's official film of the legendary 1954 World Series, when "Dusty" and "The Catch" led New York to a 4-0 sweep of the Cleveland Indians and the team's only Championship of the post-WWII era.
Narrated by John Mallow, with play-by-play from Hall of Fame broadcaster Jack Brickhouse, you get over 30 minutes of highlights from the series in classic, vintage black & white. All the key plays are here, including: Willie Mays' heroic catch-and-throw of Vic Wertz' long drive to center in the 8th inning of Game 1; James "Dusty" Rhodes' miraculous walk-off three-run homer in the 10th inning, sneaking over the short porch in right; a great look at a Mays throw early in Game 2; Johnny Antonelli and Early Wynn's pitching brilliance that ended with a 3-1 Giants win and another game-winning hit by Rhodes; Ruben Gomez and knuckleballer Hoyt Wilhelm shutting down the Indians back at old Cleveland Municipal Stadium in a 6-2 victory; and Antonelli closing out the series with a brilliant relief appearance in the Giants' 7-4 victory in Game 4.
With rare, historic coverage that gives you great views of the legendary Polo Grounds and a packed Municipal Stadium, it also features memorable stars like Larry Doby, Al Smith, Bobby Avila, Bob Lemon, Hal Newhouser, Alvin Dark, Monte Irvin, Don Mueller, Sal Maglie, Marv Grissom, managers Al Lopez and Leo Durocher, and more, this is an amazing find for any baseball lover. Whether you are a fan of the Indians, Giants, or simply a baseball fan who wants to re-live "The Catch", this is a must-have for your collection, a thrilling look back at baseball history!
