Editorial Reviews

100 Years in the making the Major League Baseball All-Century Team was an all-time roster chosen from the more than 15,000 men who played Major League Baseball in the 20th Century.

A blue ribbon panel of experts narrowed the candidates to 100 stellar players. This list was then presented for the final voting and determination of the 30 greatest players: the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

Created by Major League Baseball Productions, this DVD presents these 30 legendary players who set the standard for baseball brilliance across every era of modern baseball. With rare archival footage, exclusive interviews, and compelling stories, the Major League Baseball All-Century Team program honors the greatness of these all-time heroes through the awe-filled words of teammates, opponents, and even their own recollections.

Baseball Fantasy intersects with baseball heaven at the Major League Baseball All-Century Team.

As journalist Bruce Catton once said: "Say this much for big league baseball - it is beyond question the greatest conversation piece ever invented". A truer phrase was never spoken, as there is nothing like the sport of baseball to spark arguments and create comparisons day after day. Due to the long history of major league baseball, dating back (in its current form) to the earliest years of the 20th century, fans have always compared the stars of the past to the stars of today.

This DVD continues to fuel that fire of comparison by putting together a "Blue Ribbon Panel" to decide on the greatest baseball players of the 20th century. Though the choices are relatively straightforward and won't give hard-core baseball fans any new information, it is the debate the list sparks that will have fans discussing it long after you hit the "Eject" button. Maybe Nap Lajoie should have started at second...or Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez behind the plate...and how can Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown and Greg Maddux not be on the starting staff? Those are just a sampling of the questions that this program could possibly produce, and that is the beauty of it...each baseball fan has there own opinion!

The only downside of this tribute to baseball history is the continued reminder (with the including of Mark McGwire and Roger Clemens on the starting roster) of the Steroid Era sweeping baseball at the turn of the century. Could we really have been that short-sighted (with the answer, sadly, being a definitive "yes") to bestow honor upon honor on men whose feats seemed (and turned out to be exactly that) too good to be true?

I purchased this DVD right after Ted Williams, the great Boston player died (I knew he was in the video) and I sat in my living room watching it on the big screen TV with the volume cranked and I felt like I was in the ball park with the legends of baseball. The names of the great stretched back to the first days of the 20th century and as the living legends spoke of those that had come before their eyes would shine with pride for being part of such a great game, a great fraternity. The younger generation still playing spoke with pride about shaking the hands of one of their idols and the crowd was just great. If indeed the team depicted in the video could have been fielded - it would be the most priceless game ever played.

If you could own just one baseball video... This one provides footage of the very best players from every generation. Nostalgic for old-timers and an introduction of the all-time greats for new fans.

This is a common theme for baseball in the Bud Selig era. They could have done it so right, and instead they commit nonsensical errors. This DVD could have been stunning and perfect. Instead, it is ultimately a disappointment. How? I will tell you how.

The main program giving short historical biographies of the all century players is the best part, and for the most part is done properly and the fact that Bob Costas narrates it is a big reason why. That part still could have been longer and more thorough detailing the accomplishments of the players.

Baseball fans in general are surprisingly clueless about what many of these players accomplished, especially those that did not play in the New York, Boston and LA markets. For example, believe it or not, Selig actually had to step in and place Stan Musial on the All Century Team because the fans ignorantly failed to vote him in. He's only one of the top 5 hitters in baseball history. Aaron, Mays and Musial are still the only players with over 6000 total bases (Musial still #2). Career WAR better than Mantle, Williams and Gehrig (#7 all time). .331 lifetime hitter, 24 all star games, 3 time MVP, 3 time World Series Champion, over 3600 hits (still #4 all time), the all time NL hit leader until Pete Rose broke his record, led the league in batting 7 times, missed 500 HR only because of his year in WWII. #3 all time in doubles, #7 all time in RBI, #3 all time in Runs Created. On top of that, he was a genuine hero and the ideal role model. Yet the fans didn't even put Musial on the All Century Team.

What is the most disappointing about this DVD is the short shrift it gives to the All Century introductions at the 99 All Star Game at Fenway and the subsequent intro at the 99 World Series at Turner Field.

My baseball enthusiast son has watched this well over 100 times. Gives some great commentary and video to players he's only read about in books.
