Editorial Reviews

THE DRAMATIC 1988 NLCS GAME 4, THE PENNANT-CLINCHING GAME 7, AND ALL FIVE WORLD SERIES GAMES AGAINST THE OAKLAND ATHLETICS.

The last month of the 1988 Major League Baseball season was dominated by Orel Hershiser s record-setting scoreless-innings streak. But while Hershiser closed the season with 59 consecutive scoreless innings, the Los Angeles Dodgers entered the postseason as distinct underdogs. First they needed to overcome the mighty New York Mets: the winners of 100 games featured deep pitching, balanced power, and a battle-tested roster. Then awaiting in the Fall Classic would be the powerful Oakland Athletics. Led by the Bash Brothers, Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, this stacked squad won 104 games and then swept the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series.

As the seven games in this remarkable DVD collection prove, that s why they play the games. The Dodgers had the ever-optimistic motivation of manager Tommy Lasorda. The Dodgers had the ferocity and bulldog determination of Hershiser. The Dodgers had the singular cast of players who far exceeded the sum of the parts and became an unstoppable team. The Dodgers had the 1988 National League MVP, the inspirational lion-hearted leadership of Kirk Gibson, who with one dramatic swing crushed the spirit of the Athletics and carved out a special place in the World Series pantheon.

DVD FEATURES INCLUDE: 1988 World Series Trophy and MVP Award Presentations; 1988 Ring Ceremony; Inside the Moments: Gibson's Home Run; Orel Hershiser: The Scoreless Streak; Locker Room Interviews Following the Gibson Home Run; Award Ceremonies: Kirk Gibson 1988 NL MVP, Orel Hershiser 1988 NL Cy Young; Rare Interviews: Tommy Lasorda, Kirk Gibson, Dennis Eckersley, Tony LaRussa, Sparky Anderson; Special Game Footage: Hershiser's 20th Win, Orel Breaks the MLB Scoreless Innings Record, Dodgers Clinch NL West, Dodgers Big 2nd Inning of NLCS Game 2, Jack Buck's Historic Call of Gibson's World Series HR, Last Out of the 1988 World Series

Highly recommended for Dodger fans.

I thought the quality was great and it was always entertaining when Vin Scully was doing the game for NBC.

Overall, it is a nice set for any Dodger fan or a fan of baseball in general.

What an interesting World Series this was. We see the best of Tommy Lasorda as a manager, the coming of age of Orel Hershiser the famous Kirk Gibson home run off Eckersley and the blossoming of McGwire and Canseco as the bash brothers. Little did we know about steroid use at that time. So the Lasorda-led Dodgers were able to defeat the more youthful and upstart Oakland As. Another Oakland World Championship had to wait until 1989 (the very next season).

This has to be a best seller among Dodger fans. I bet Bruce Kendall has this in his collection. It's a wonder that he hasn't reviewed it.

first off to answer the question of the "reviewer" who hasn't seen it..
YES, as a bonus feature one can watch the Kirk Gibson home run with the alternate Joe Buck, "I can't believe what I just saw" call. All of us in LA will continue to prefer the Vin Scully called as aired...when Vinny just shut up and let the scene play out after he called the homer.

Back to the set...its pretty great..
a couple of games from the improbable Mets Series and then the complete world series..and lots of bonus interviews and awards presentations on the last DVD.

If you are a Dodger fan...its hard to believe its been 20 years...buy this. It is much more than one home run...Hershiser had one of the best seasons and post seasons a pitcher EVER had...and many fringe players like Micky Hatcher came through in the clutch. a lot of goodies here and lets hope 1981 when we (oops I've given away my bias) upset the Yankees gets this sort of presentation!

Go Big Blue!!

This is one series that helped me out in a personal way. This is coming from a diehard Yankee fan but my grandmother was a diehard Dodgers fan and she died only 3 weeks before the Dodgers won the series. To this day will always pull for the Dodgers even if I am a Yankees fan. But this series was a great one as for me I watched all the games and was interested in the series because I knew how much my grandmother loved watching the Dodgers. And it was so fitting as they won as underdogs and made me feel great that they won for my grandmother and for them beating the A's, which I disliked at the time. But as for the set, I would recommend buying especially if your a Dodgers fan but it's great to have on the shelf even if your a baseball fan in general. It's great to watch baseball when all the players loved the game and not just the money. I thought the quality was great and it was always entertaining when Vin Scully was doing the game for NBC. Like I said I highly recommend picking this set up.

What an excellent set of memories these discs are. For baseball fans the 1988 post season was certainly entertaining but for Dodger fans it was stupendous. This set captures all the best moments; at least for LA fans. The videos highlight how a somewhat mediocre (at least on paper) team took out the trash in NY and northern California. My favorite scenes were Gibby's home run and the stellar pitching of Orel Hershiser. Seeing the original broadcasts 20 years later reminded me why i loved this team so much. The quality of the transfers was pretty good and all the action worth seeing is included in this set. If you're a Dodgers fan you won't be disappointed.

We all remember Gibsons' home run but we may have forgotten the build-up to it. We can now experience the entire drama again with this set. This set offers two of the NLCS games. They are enough to get a feel for Gibson's worth to the Dodgers. So when we now watch Game 1 of the World Series, we can remember how we missed him and how excited we were when he returned for a brief appearance in that memorable ninth inning. This makes what he did later even more special.
