It's hard for me to imagine owning a better collectible keepsake of the stellar 1975 World Series than what A&E Home Video and Major League Baseball Properties have put together for baseball fans here -- a 7-Disc DVD compilation featuring all seven games from the original NBC-TV network telecasts (with Tony Kubek, Curt Gowdy, Joe Garagiola, and Reds' play-by-play man Marty Brennaman, among others, at the microphones calling the action).
All of these games are presented complete and uncut, with two exceptions -- a half-inning of Game 2 (top of the 2nd) and 1-and-a-half innings (plus one additional batter) of Game 3 are missing on these DVDs. Evidently that video footage could not be obtained by A&E/MLB for this collector's set.
The missing moments of Games 2 and 3, however, do not involve either team's scoring. So no big home runs, RBIs, or crucial plays are part of the AWOL footage.
THE 1975 WORLD SERIES:
The Cincinnati Reds and the Boston Red Sox battled each other over the course of seven memorable baseball games during the fall of 1975.Read more ›
Of course the most famous home run of th series was Carlton Fisk's because
(1) It won game 6 for the Red Sox and (2) it took the series to a decisive 7th game and (3) it was so close to the left field foul pole that Fisk went down the first base line and tried to "wave" the ball fair (a very familiar sight every time the home run is shown).
Because of the memories of the children begging mom to let us stay up and see the ends of the schoolnight games, the long school day afterwards, the head-lolling (and balk-move to first) of Luis Tiant - not to mention 3 rather impressive 100+ pitch appearances by the "pith and guile" veteran - because there were some guys playing baseball who might be out on a construction crew, or telling at a bank, or sacking groceries, or driving truck, to make ends meet the next week, because of a love of "The Big Red Machine" (because the Cubbies were never available to root for in the post-season), because my sister had a crush on "Davey" Concepcion, well, you get it... because this was one of the great Series of all time when ML baseball was "still a game" I made this my first World Series Collector's Edition purchase and have completely enjoyed watching it a couple of times (so far). I love seeing it in color as we had to settle for B&W in the day.Read more ›
The Bosox had Carl ('Yaz') Yastrzemski, pitcher Luis Tiant (who could ever forget his setup & delivery?) and former Red Bernie Carbo, who hit the 3-run homer to tie Game #6 in the bottom of the 9th inning. It was called the "Greatest Game Ever Played" at the time. Yada-yada. The Bosox won the game in the bottom of the 12th when Yaz homered to left with the help of some serious "hopping body language. This forced Game #7 in Boston the next day.
The Reds won Game #7 in the top of the ninth when Joe Morgan hit a bloop single to center, scoring Griffey from 3rd with what proved to be the game winning run. Will McEnaney shut down the Sox 1-2-3 in the bottom of the 9th, giving the Reds their first World Series title since 1940.
I was 16 when the '75 Series happened. I was 54 when I watched it again. I still have the DVD set in my collection. The only way I'd ever consider selling it would be if it came out on Blu-Ray! If you're an old-tyme Reds fan, BUY IT!! You won't regret it.
