Product Description

The St. Louis Cardinals thrilled Cardinal Nation with a game full of heart-stopping comebacks, including a spectacular 11th inning walk-off home run. Hometown hero and budding star David Freese smashed the solo shot in the final inning that provided a fitting finale to a spectacular Fall Classic matchup.

In Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, on the edge of elimination, the Cardinals trailed five times and were twice down to their last strike. But Freese, Lance Berkman and a resilient lineup evened the score each time until Freese delivered the second of his incredible moments--the wondrous walk-off homer. All of the drama, thrills, exhilaration and jubilation of this Fall Classic masterpiece are here to enjoy for the first time in pristine HD with the roar of the crowd in 5.1 surround sound.

Direct from the archives of Major League Baseball, this extraordinary television broadcast includes the quintessential making of an iconic moment, and one unforgettable baseball game available for the first time on Blu-Ray!

WORLD SERIES GAME 6, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2011, BUSCH STADIUM

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on March 29, 2012
There is no denying that America has a fascination with lists. We are constantly striving to order things and categorize them resulting in much discussion, fun, and even argumentation. What is the best? What is your favorite? Listing things has become almost as much of a sport and pastime as the items that are being defined. For baseball lovers, A&E and Major League Baseball have joined forces to launch a series of DVDs sure to provoke passion, disagreement, and fond remembrances. Called "Baseball's Greatest Games," the latest submission into this DVD archive is its most contemporary game yet. It is Game 6 of the 2011 World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. For sheer entertainment and suspense, this is a great modern classic that emphasizes perseverance, resilience, and a never-say-die spirit that make it so memorable.

Unlike other choices in the Greatest Game archives (some date back to 1960), the televised quality of the production is as advanced as you might expect. Also unique to this entry is that, for the first time, the game is offered in a combo pack that offers a hi-def Blu-ray option that includes 5.1 surround sound (as well as a regular DVD version). So, in my opinion, the game looks and sounds great. If you collect games and like to rewatch them, this gives the home experience an extra punch. Also, the discs do offer optional radio play-by-play commentary to expand the viewing party into yet another dimension.

This is a great choice for baseball enthusiasts and a must-have for die-hard Cardinal fans! Busch Stadium, October 27, 2011, 11 innings. KGHarris, 3/12.

The events that occurred during Game Six of the 2011 World Series were of such historic improbability, no one would ever believed they actually took place unless they saw it with their own two eyes. Even then, it's still hard to comprehend it really happened. But it did, and here's the proof.

If you are a Cardinals fan, this could be your favorite piece of team history; a game so frustrating and flawed at the outset, to so heroic and perfect at the conclusion. Over the years, I have collected a wide assortment of video, capturing great moments of Cardinals history. After a while, it tends to get a little boring. I could watch this particular event every day for the next 50 years, and never get tired of it.

What amazes me is no matter how often I watch it, I still feel the range of emotions I experienced that Thursday evening back in October - hope, frustration, despair - to absolute joy. For Cardinals fans, it just doesn't get any better than this.

I am not a St. Louis nor a Texas Rangers fan (I'm a Mariners fan). But I agree that this game is a CLASSIC. It will go down as one of the greatest World Series games. Good job MLB for recognizing this early and putting this out.

The picture quality is incredible!!! I am a Tiger fan and and am telling all fans of baseball... This is a must have !!! The choice of broadcasts (Fox, KMOX, KESN and Spanish) make it a real treat. It complements the whole event perfectly. Please make room for this in your collection baseball fans !!! and it seems to be region free.

My dad and I attended game 6 of the 2011 World Series and were lucky enough to see possibly THE GREATEST game in World Series history. The back and forth drama in this big league battle really shows how exciting the game of baseball is - when tensions are high in a tightly drawn race to the finish. If you are a St. Louis Cardinals fan then this is a must own. The Cardinals never-say-die credo in a must win situation is what makes this game such a remarkable feat. I recommend this blu-ray this to any baseball fan (no matter who your favorite team may be) for just the sheer exhiliration of the action and the adrenaline rush produced by watching it. Every time I sit back and watch this game it never fails to give me chills and goose bumps. I'm sure part of that is produced by my brain's cognitive memory response and associating it with my real-life exprerience at the game. So, I'm a bit biased but that's my opinion.

Not much to say about this...it's the whole broadcast of one of my favorite games ever. About the only downside is that rewatching it can remind you how bland most of this game actually was. You'll probably find yourself skipping to the late innings most of the time. In fact, I'd probably still have made the purchase (and given it five stars) if it had just been the late innings.

Of all the World Series games played during my 54 years of life, this has to be the greatest of them all. Being 10 1/2 games out of the Wild Card at the end of Aug 2011, this team pulled it together and won it all. Game 6 of the World Sreies was even more proof that team was ment to win it all. Enjoy this game to watch over and over again for years to come.

I eat, sleep, and breathe Cardinal baseball, and for as long as I live I don't think I'll ever forget the events of game 6 of the 2011 World Series. I sat on the couch watching the madness and impossible-ness of the game unfold before my eyes while hardly believing it. It looked like a game 7 would happen. Then it didn't. I had basically accepted defeat entering the bottom of the 9th. When Freese tied it I texted people, called people, and danced like a fool! Then yet again had accepted defeat entering the bottom of the 10th only to watch them tie it again, and I knew deep down when Freese led off the 11th magic was about to happen.

I still can't believe what happened two years later. I get goosebumps typing this. "Roller coaster" doesn't begin to describe the 2011 season or this game, and thanks to this blu-ray with a beautiful HD picture I can relive it whenever I want. The highs and lows complete with Joe Buck's "And we will see you tomorrow night!" Baseball heaven at its finest.
