It was baseball's 50th World Series, so who better to celebrate that Golden anniversary than the New York Yankees? In yet another classic Subway Series, the underdog Yankees stunned the Brooklyn Dodgers to win their fifth straight World Series championship - a feat that has never been duplicated!
This amazing DVD features Major League Baseball's official film of the 1953 World Series, directed and narrated by baseball film pioneer Lew Fonseca. It incudes all the great moments of the subway series, from Yankee Stadium and Ebbets Field: Billy Martin's first-inning bases-clearing triple to get the Yankees off on the right foot in a Game 1 victory; Mickey Mantle's two-run blast in Game 2; Carl Erskine's amazing 14-strikeout performance (then a record) in Brooklyn's Game 3 win; Duke Snider's 5th career World Series home run, and Martin getting thrown out at the plate to end the game, in the Dodgers' Game 4 victory; Mantle's opposite-field upper-deck grand slam in Game 5; and Martin's extra-inning RBI that spoiled Carl Furillo's dramatic game-tying homer, giving the Yankees the series in Game 6. With other appearances from Roy Campanella, Billy Cox, Jim Gilliam, Gil Hodges, Pee Wee Reese, Jackie Robinson, Preacher Roe, Billy Loes, Clem Labine, Johnny Podres, Hank Bauer, Yogi Berra, Joe Collins, Gil McDougald, Phil Rizzuto, Gene Woodling, Ed Lopat, Vic Raschi, Whitey Ford, Johnny Sain, and Bob Kuzava, these classic star-studded lineups are a thrill to watch, and are an essential part of historic baseball lore.
Impossible to find in stores, here is your chance to add a rare piece of baseball history to your sports DVD collection.
