Re-live the miracle of 1990! From Sweet Lou in the dugout, to the Nasty Boys out of the bullpen, to Eric Davis' brilliance, to Jose Rijo's dominance, the Cincinnati Reds shocked everyone, and swept away the heavily-favored Oakland A's in the World Series.
This amazing VHS features Major League Baseball's official film of the 1990 World Series, featuring highlights, interviews, and rare behind-the-scenes footage of the four-game Reds victory. Starting with a review of the regular-season and Championship Series victories of both the Reds and A's, it incudes all the great moments of the series from Riverfront Stadium and Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum: Davis' first-inning homer, and Rijo combining with both "Nasty Boys" (Randy Myers and Rob Dibble) to deal a 7-0 shutout in Game 1; Joe Oliver delivering victory with a dramatic 10th-inning game-winning double in Game 2; Chris Sabo's two home runs in the Reds' 8-3 shocker in Oakland in Game 3; and Rijo once again spinning his magic to close out the A's in a 2-1 Game 4 clinching victory. The highlights are narrated by broadcaster Pat O'Brien, are punctuated by the CBS broadcast team of Jack Buck and Tim McCarver, and are enhanced with exclusive interviews with Rijo, Juan Marichal (Rijo's father-in-law), Lou Piniella, Oliver, Tom Browning, Marty Brennaman, McCarver, Sabo, Mark McGwire, and Rickey Henderson.
With amazing, long-lost footage you likely haven't seen in years, and performances from other key players like Jose Canseco, Mike Gallego, Dave Henderson, Carney Lansford, Willie McGee, Willie Randolph, Dennis Eckersley, Dave Stewart, Bob Welch, Todd Benzinger, Glenn Braggs (see him break his bat on a swing-and-a-miss!), Mariano Duncan, Billy Hatcher, Barry Larkin, Hal Morris, Paul O'Neill, Danny Jackson, and others, this will bring back memories of a lifetime. A rare video that has now been discontinued by the manufacturer, and a production that has never been available on DVD, here's your last chance to own this film - limited quantity remains in our warehouse. Whether you are a lifelong fan looking to re-live a remarkable season in Reds history, or a young enthusiast hoping to explore a long-gone season you've never seen before, this is for you!
