Fun for baseball junkies of all ages
on October 4, 2013
My kid won this as a prize at the MLB All-Star Game 2011. We had NOOOOO idea what a jackpot we had won. We have watched all nine episodes over, and over, and over, and over. My children have learned a ton about baseball, both the game and its recent history, from this DVD! And it has kept them from driving their parents crazy and/or killing each other in the backseat of many a long road trip! The whole family enjoys this exploration of great moments in baseball. We lost the original disc on one of our trips and I did not hesitate to order a replacement. I also bought a copy for my nephew, who is as much of a baseball nut as my son (they are both six years old), and he looooooooves it. I wish there were additional editions!
By way of comparison, we have also borrowed from the library various installments of Ken Burns' Baseball series. My children are pretty sophisticated in general and budding baseball connoisseurs but the Burns DVDs did not hold their attention. Prime 9 was produced for commercial TV so it is punchier. We cut them off at three half-hour episodes but I bet they could watch all nine in succession! So if you are shopping for a younger audience, look no further.
