Product Description

1954 - NEW YORK GIANTS vs CLEVELAND INDIANS "The Catch" was a magnificent moment in time when action, athletic genius, and history collide. This celebrated play of the 1954 World Series® created an iconic image and defined the competitive fire, excellence, and grace of the remarkable Willie Mays. Along with manager Leo "the Lip" Durocher, the electrifying Mays and the New York Giants® met the heavily favored Cleveland Indians® and their American League® record 111 victories. Games 1 and 2 took place on the hallowed Polo Grounds in northern Manhattan, while cavernous Cleveland Stadium was the site of the final two contests of the Fall Classic®. In addition to the stupefying defensive play by Mays off a prodigious blast by Cleveland's Vic Wertz, Game 1 also featured the pinch-hit, game-ending home-run heroics of James "Dusty" Rhodes. Stunned and defeated, the Indians could not overcome the stellar pitching and patient hitting of the Giants who swept all four games to claim the championship.

This 36-minute official Major League Baseball film captures the highlights of the 1954 World Series between the New York Giants and the 111-win Cleveland Indians. Most fans will recognize this as the year of "The Catch," Giants centerfielder Willie Mays' over-the-shoulder grab of Vic Wertz's titanic drive. That moment is here, in slightly longer form than most fans have seen (Mays making the catch and a fan grabbing his head in disbelief), as are "Dusty" Rhodes' clutch home runs and New York's famous field, the Polo Grounds. --David Horiuchi

I was very pleased with this DVD, which is a essentially a highlight reel of the four games of the 1954 World Series. It's all done in black and white, released shortly after the conclusion of this Series. This is baseball at its best- Willie Mays in particular shines brilliantly. Dusty Rhodes' clutch pinch hitting, and Johnny Antonelli's game 4 relief appearance after starting game 2 are showcased as well. One of the most unique stadiums in history- The Polo Grounds- is presented in all its glory. This DVD highlights an era when Major League Baseball players were motivated more for the glory of being the last ones standing at the end of the season than anything else. The intensity of the action of play in this World Series testifies to this.

I've been a Giants' fan since the team moved to SF in 1958. I'm also very interested in general baseball history. With the SF Giants recent World Series successes, references were made to the last previous Giants World Series Champion team of 1954, when the team was still in New York. Willie Mays' MVP season, Dusty Rhodes Series heroics, Bobby Avila's batting championship season, and the great Indians' pitching staff were only things I could imagine. With this DVD, I could see all of these things which I could previously only see in my mind. Although the production quality of this documentary is not on a par with what is possible today, it still tells the story of the 1954 Series very well. I enjoyed it very much and recommend it to Giants' fans and baseball fans in general.

It was fun to see the Highlights (pretty much all scoring plays and good defensive plays ) of the 1954 World Series with the New York Giants vs. The Cleveland Indians. It is in Black and White, which is perfectly fine since it was 1954! I do wish that they could have shown more of the games and maybe a better presentation as it just goes from one highlight to another without the greatest transitions!

What a joy to see Willie Mays make the perfect catch in Game 1 and see John Antonelli pitch the entire 2nd game AND relieve in the 4th for a 4 game sweep. This is what baseball should be!
