From Frank and Brooks Robinson, to Palmer and McNally, to Ripken and Murray...re-live the three greatest years in Baltimore Orioles history! This amazing item will bring back memories of a lifetime with Major League Baseball's official World Series films for 1966, 1970 and 1983 - the three Baltimore Orioles World Series Championship seasons.
First, the 1966 highlight film, narrated by the Hall of Fame voice of the Orioles, Chuck Thompson. The classic presentation takes you through all the key moments of Baltimore's sweep of the defending World Champion L.A. Dodgers: Triple Crown winner Frank Robinson starting things off with a first-inning home run, and Brooks following with one of his own, and Moe Drabowsky's miraculous relief pitching in the O's Game 1 victory; Willie Davis and the L.A. defense spoiling the remarkable Sandy Koufax-Jim Palmer pitching duel in Baltimore's 6-0 Game 2 win; Paul Blair's 430-foot bomb off Claude Osteen providing the margin of victory in Wally Bunker's 1-0 Game 3 shutout; and Dave McNally's dominance to cap off the sweep (and 33 consecutive scoreless innings pitched for Baltimore) in Game 4's 1-0 clincher.
Next, the 1970 film, narrated by another Hall of Fame broadcaster, the great Curt Gowdy. This presentation gives you all the highlights of The Brooks Robinson Show - aka Baltimore's 5-game romp over the Cincinnati Reds' "Big Red Machine", with defensive gems from the Hall of Fame third baseman at every turn. It opens with a look at brand-new Riverfront Stadium and the most controversial play of the series: Elrod Hendricks' phantom tag on Bernie Carbo that cost the Reds a key 6th-inning run in the 4-3 Orioles Game 1 victory; the great 6-5 Orioles comeback victory in Game 2; McNally's Grand Slam in the Orioles' 9-3 Game 3 win; Lee May's game winning Homer to postpone the inevitable for Cincinnati in Game 4; and more Brooksie magic in the clinching Game 5.
Finally, you get the official film of yet another dominating Orioles victory. Narrated by a third Hall of Fame broadcaster, Mel Allen, it gives you all the win over the "Wheeze Kids", the 1983 Philadelphia Phillies and their rare zipper-top uniforms: Joe Morgan's big homer, and Al Holland's big save, in Philly's Game 1 victory; John Lowenstein following up an amazing over-the-wall catch in Game 1 with a key homer in Baltimore's 4-1 victory in Game 2; Jim Palmer earning a World Series win in a record third decade in the miraculous Game 3 comeback; Richie Ashburn and the 1950 Whiz Kids throwing out the first pitch before Philly's 5-4 defeat in Game 4; and Eddie Murray providing the icing on the cake with two huge bombs in Baltimore's 5-0 clinching victory (Cal Ripken Jr. catches a liner for the final out).
With exclusive interviews, rare behind-the-scenes documentary footage, and countless great moments that you haven't seen in years, this is the ultimate item for any true Orioles fan. With action that also includes old stars like Dodgers Maury Wills, Tommy Davis, Jim Gilliam, Jim Lefebvre, Johnny Roseboro, Don Drysdale, and Ron Perranoski; Reds Johnny Bench, Dave Concepcion, Hal McRae, Tony Perez, Pete Rose, and Milt Wilcox; Phillies Bo Diaz, Garry Maddox, Gary Matthews, Mike Schmidt, Steve Carlton, and John Denny; and O's Luis Aparicio, Paul Blair, Andy Etchebarren, Davey Johnson, Boog Powell, Mark Belanger, Donn Buford, Mike Cuellar, Al Bumbry, Rick Dempsey, Rich Dauer, Dan Ford, Tito Landrum, Lenn Sakata, John Shelby, Ken Singleton, Storm Davis, Mike Flanagan, and Scott McGregor, this is a baseball time capsule that simply must be seen!
