All Hail the Rally Monkey! With passion, heart, all-around great play, and the encouragement of a little simeon friend, the Anaheim Angels shocked the baseball universe and won the incredible seven-game 2002 Fall Classic. By vanquishing Barry Bonds and the San Francisco Giants, the Angels wiped away four decades of catastrophic disappointments, and gave Gene Autry a reason to smile down on his old heavenly franchise.
This amazing DVD features "Heaven in Seven", Major League Baseball's official World Series film for 2002. With original documentary and interview footage, rare never-before-seen camera angles, and fascinating behind-the-scenes coverage, this presentation features all the key moments of the power-packed, back-and-forth, unforgettable 2002 Fall Classic. This feature-length home video presentation starts with regular-season and playoff highlights for both the Giants and the Angels, including Anaheim's improbable defeat of the four-time defending AL champion New York Yankees in the ALDS, and the stunning emergence of "K-Rod", Francisco Rodriguez.
Then, it's on to the amazing Fall Classic: Barry Bonds' monster blast in his first-ever World Series appearance, helping the Giants to a 4-3 victory in Game 1; Tim Salmon's tie-breaking 8th-inning homer to give the Angels a dramatic 11-10 win; the Angels' record-setting back-to-back bat-around innings in their 10-4 Game 3 victory; San Francisco's victories in Games 4 and 5 that moved the Giants to within a game of the title (including highlights of little Darren Baker almost getting bowled over at the plate); Barry Bonds' legendary blast down a runway in the right-field stands early in Game 6; Anaheim's miraculous, monkey-induced rally from five runs down in the seventh to win Game 6, capped by Troy Glaus' heart-stopping two-run double; and the Angels home-field celebration after beating Livan Hernandez and the Giants in the Game 7 finale.
A true blockbuster presentation, this DVD features rare documentary coverage, audio from all the broadcast teams (Fox's Joe Buck and Tim McCarver; MLB Radio's Gary Thorne and Rick Sutcliffe; ESPN Radio's Jon Miller and Joe Morgan; KLAC's Rory Markas and Terry Smith; and KNBR's Joe Angel, Mike Krukow and Duane Kuiper); and exclusive interview clips from managers Mike Scioscia and Dusty Baker, coaches Bud Black, Gene Clines, and Dave Righetti, as well as all the key players (Rodriguez, Glaus, Tim Salmon, Jarrod Washburn, Garrett Anderson, Darrin Erstad, Bengie Molina, David Eckstein, Scott Spiezio, Adam Kennedy, John Lackey, Troy Percival, Kenny Lofton, Russ Ortiz, Benito Santiago, J.T. Snow, Jason Schmidt, David Bell, Shawon Dunston, Kirk Reuter, and more).
Whether you are a lifelong fan wishing to re-live great memories, or a new enthusiast hoping to enjoy one of the greatest Fall Classics of all-time, this DVD is perfect for you, and a must-have addition to your sports DVD collection. Enjoy!
