Re-live the greatest season in Milwaukee Brewers history - Harvey Kuenn's 1982 squad, forever known as "Harvey's Wallbangers"! This amazing 2-DVD set, produced in 2007 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the team that captured the imagination of millions of fans, and came within four innings of a World Series championship. Disc 1 features the 70-minute documentary "Harvey's Wallbangers", narrated by Bob Uecker. Through exclusive interviews, archival game footage, classic clips, and a dramatic story arc, the story is told, as the Brewers turn over the team to batting coach Harvey Kuenn in May, dominate the A.L. East until late September, survive a near collapse with a final-day victory over the Baltimore Orioles, rebound from 2-0 down to defeat the California Angels in the ALCS, and take the St. Louis Cardinals to a tight Game 7 before finally succumming to the Busch Stadium fanatics in the World Series. Disc 1 bonuses include the original bottom-of-the-ninth broadcasts from the A.L. East and ALCS clinching games, and all Brewers post-season home runs.
Disc 2 gives you a true piece of history - ABC Sports' complete original broadcast of the dramatic Game 5 of the ALCS against the California Angels from Milwaukee's old County Stadium. Called by legends Keith Jackson, Jim Palmer, and Earl Weaver, you'll be watching this game, in all its glory, exactly as it was aired back in the day! Sitting in the archives for a quarter-century, this rare broadcast has finally seen the light of day again.
For fans of those amazing Brew Crew teams of the late 1970s and early 1980s, this is a must for your collection. Featuring Hall of Famers Robin Yount, Paul Molitor, Rollie Fingers, and Don Sutton, as well as stars Jim Gantner, Ted Simmons, Ben Oglivie, Cecil Cooper, Gorman Thomas, Charlie Moore, Don Money, Mike Caldwell, Pete Vukovich, Pete Ladd, Bob McClure, and special appearances from Uecker, owner Bud Selig, and all those crazy fans, this is a true time capsule you'll treasure forever! Produced for the Milwaukee market, we're proud to make this available to fans around the world. Enjoy!
