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.

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!!
