Keeping You Informed: World Series DVD

Posted on November 16, 2011 at 11:29 AM
Filed Under: St. Louis Cardinals
There were so many wonderful moments in the 2011 World Series.  It seems like we'd want to relieve them again and again.  Guess what?  We can!


There are two different ways to do it, if you are so inclined.  The official World Series film, which comes out next week (and screens in St. Louis on Tuesday--you can buy tickets here and if you are in the area, you definitely should go.  I really wish I could!) and the complete DVD set of the whole Series.  I'll be reviewing both of these in the coming weeks, but for now, here's the release about them.  Start saving your money!

"Unbelievable, amazing, incredible. It's hard to believe it actually happened."
-- Manager Tony LaRussa, after World Series Game 7





In Stores November 22





8-DVD Set in Stores December 6


Every Game-Saving Catch, Every Thrilling Pitch, Every Historic Home Run and Gripping Moment of the 2011 World Series Can be Celebrated with These Remarkable Collectibles from Major League Baseball Productions and A+E Networks Home Entertainment


St. Louis Native Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") Narrates The Official World Series Film


NEW YORK, NY (November 16, 2011) -- Three days after World Series Game 7, Tony La Russa, the winningest manager in St. Louis Cardinals history (1,408 wins, two World Series Championships) retired after a record 16 seasons.  As shocking as that was to many Cardinals die-hards, it was probably less stunning than one of the most dramatic, surprising and improbable runs in World Series history.  Following the Redbirds unforgettable 11th title - the most by any National League franchise - Cardinals fans everywhere will thrill to two singular and complementary collectibles which forever enshrine the story of this St. Louis Fall Classic triumph:OFFICIAL  2011 WORLD SERIES FILM and ST. LOUIS CARDINALS 2011 WORLD SERIES COLLECTOR'S EDITION.

They believed. They wanted it. More than 10 games out of the postseason in late August, the St. Louis Cardinals battled back into contention and claimed a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season. They then overcame the heavily-favored Philadelphia Phillies, and prevailed against the division-rival Milwaukee Brewers.  Facing off against the Texas Rangers in the 107th World Series, the Cardinals fell behind 3-2 in the best-of-seven series despite the unprecedented performance of Albert Pujols.  Returning to Busch Stadium for the electrifying Game 6, the Redbirds rallied from two runs down and one strike away from elimination in both the ninth and 10th innings, when hometown hero David Freese crushed an all-time walk-off home run in the 11th inning to force a Game 7.  Then, in the deciding game -- an astounding 89% of all households in St. Louis witnessed a gutsy start by ace Chris Carpenter and a clutch two-run double from World Series MVP David Freese to deliver the franchise's 11th World Series Championship.


In the OFFICIAL 2011 WORLD SERIES FILM, the annual, crowning program from Major League Baseball Productions, St. Louis native and narrator Jon Hamm ("Mad Men") delivers the redoubtable Redbirds championship run, from first pitch to last in a pulse-pounding documentary format.  Providing comprehensive highlights, exclusive access and interviews, plus breath-taking footage and sounds captured by MLB cameras and microphones throughout the series, this DVD is a perfect way to relive the epic battle against the Texas Rangers.


The OFFICIAL 2011 WORLD SERIES FILM will be released as a 2-disc set, featuring an exclusive bonus disc containing the complete NLDS Game 5 vs. the Phillies, a taut 1-0 pitcher's duel which propelled the Cardinals to the NLCS and, ultimately, the World Series.  Additional extras include behind-the-scenes interviews and bonus programming.  Just in time for the holidays, the OFFICIAL 2011 WORLD SERIES FILM 2-Disc DVD will be available on November 22 and will also be available in the crystal clarity of a single Blu-ray disc on December 6, bothcurrently available for pre-order on

With the 2011 Fall Classic, history unfolded before our eyes and Cardinals fans will be able to revel every clutch pitch, game-winning hit, and record-setting moment with the ST. LOUIS CARDINALS 2011 WORLD SERIES COLLECTOR'S EDITION.  Featuring every game of this remarkable 7-game series -- including Game 6 which instantly became one of the greatest postseason games ever played -- this 8-DVD set celebrates the Cardinals unforgettable, exhilarating, dramatic, and uplifting comebacks and victories.


Displaying the fortitude of the Redbirds under Manager Tony LaRussa and the heroics of David Freese, Albert Pujols, Lance Berkman, Allen Craig, Yadier Molina, and Chris Carpenter along with every glorious Cardinals moment, this 8-disc set is the most comprehensive memento of a season that won't soon be forgotten.  Each of the seven World Series games, shown complete and uncut, is wrapped with SleeveStats, offering player facts, historic notes and quotes.  The set also includes numerous features to enhance the viewing experience, including three extra audio channels allowing the home viewer to select from alternative audio tracks for each World Series game (Fox Sports, Cardinals Radio Network, Rangers Radio Network, ESPN Deportes Radio). Also included is a special bonus disc featuring regular and postseason highlights, player interviews, and never-before-seen celebratory footage. 


Bonus material: Walk-Off Wins n Milestones n NL Wild Card Clinch, Last Out Celebration nNLDS Highlights & Last Out Celebration n NLCS Highlights & Last Out Celebration n NLCS Trophy & MVP Trophy Presentation n World Series Final Out, Celebration & Trophy Presentation n St. Louis Victory Parade and City Hall Celebration n Rally Squirrel Highlights


This year's World Series broke television records. Game 6 earned a 52.7 rating in the St. Louis market, higher than any of their previous marks in the 2004 or 2006 World Series. And Game 7averaged 25.4 million viewers on FOX, making it the most watched baseball game since the Boston Red Sox won the title in 2004.  Be a part of that history and paint the town red with these two must-have official mementos of a season that will go down as one of the most thrilling of the Cardinals storied past.
