The 2005 World Series film( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 2005 World Series, the Chicago White Sox became the latest long-suffering team to celebrate a championship for the first time since World War I, beating the Houston Astros in a four-game sweep. Houston, which finally won a pennant for the first time since it joined the National League in 1962, became the first team swept in its Series debut. While the Windy City celebrated the White Sox--who hadn't won a Series since 1917 and hadn't played in one since 1959--fans didn't get to enjoy a single celebration in person, as the division title and all three rounds of the postseason were won on the road, a baseball first. No longer will the White Sox be remembered for Shoeless Joe Jackson's Black Sox, who threw the 1919 Series against Cincinnati, but rather as champions -- improbable as that might seem

The St. Louis Cardinals 2006 World Series( Visual )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2006, the St. Louis Cardinals captured the franchise's 10th World Series championship. A team that went 83-78 in the regular season, that sustained two eight-game losing streaks and another seven-game skid, had to go to the last day of the season to secure the division title. After going 11-5 in the playoffs, the Redbirds claimed the biggest prize of all. At the end of September, only the truest of true believers were still on the bandwagon, but the playoff opener in San Diego the Cardinals played with sharpness, purpose, and passion. After a season of doubt, they played like champions in October

The New York Mets 1986 World Series( Visual )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1986, the New York Mets won the World Series, defeating the Boston Red Sox in some of the most memorable baseball ever played. For he last half of the 10th inning in Game 6, Rod Serling couldn't have written a better script. The 10-pitch battle between pitcher Bob Stanley and Mets outfielder Mookie Wilson ended when Wilson hit a slow rolling ground ball up the first base line that got through Sox first baseman Bill Buckner's legs. The Mets won the game 6-5, and deadlocked the Series at three all. Game 7 was postponed for 24 hours because of rain, and by then the 8-5 Mets win seemed a tad anticlimactic, while the crowd was well behaved in their celebration of the city's first championship in eight years

The Minnesota Twins 1987 World Series( Visual )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1987 World Series inaugurated the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in fine style, and in their first Series win, the Twins triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals extended through all seven games. The core of the team was manager Tom Kelly, whose calm was contagious, with a lineup powered by a hard-hitting Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbek, Gary Gaetti, and Tom Brunansky; starting ace Frank Viola, supplemented by the likes of Bert Blyleven, Jeff Reardon, and Juan Berenguer; and of course the Homer Hanky-wielding fans turning the Metrodome into a house of horrors for opposing teams. It was the first World Series played in an indoor stadium, and where the home team won every home game. The Twins rode an unmatched home field advantage to the top in an exciting, well played Series

Dodger blue : the championship years( Visual )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dodgers have managed to win six World Series championships through their 115 years or so of existence. Appearing in seven Series before winning their first in 1955, after moving from Brooklyn to Los Angeles in 1958, they managed to appear in four from 1959 to 1966, and won three, going on to win again in 1981 and 1988. The film spends some time on various memorable individuals in the organization, notably Sandy Koufax and the inimitable Tommy Lasorda, with ample footage of feats that inspire the dreams of little kids growing up. Despite oftentimes being baseball's bridesmaids, "Da Bums" have always been supremely watchable, and Dodger Blue makes waxing nostalgic for Dodger heroics extremely enjoyable
New York Yankees( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The World Series, played annually since 1903 (in 1904, the New York Giants refused to play the champions of an 'up-start' league; in 1994 the post-season was wiped out by labor conflict) has--despite the development of other sports and the broadening of the entertainment industry--a perennial hold on American popular culture. The defining moment of baseball, the hard-fought post-season games of modern World Series, while not necessarily featuring teams with the best records, have a long history of riveting the attention of the entire United States. No team more so than the New York Yankees, winners of 25 titles in the 20th century, including the unprecedented (and as yet unequaled) string of five victories from 1949-1953. The Yankees are truly baseball's Team of the Century
Minnesota Twins( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two hour-long films summarizing the highlights of the 1987 and 1991 World Series featuring the Minnesota Twins. The 1987 World Series inaugurated the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in fine style, and their triumph over the St. Louis Cardinals extended through seven games, filled with nail-biting tension. The core of both teams was the same: manager Tom Kelly; hitters Kirby Puckett and Kent Hrbek; and pitchers Frank Viola and Jack Morris, supplemented by the likes of Gary Gaetti, Jeff Reardon, Scott Erickson, and Chuck Knoblauch--and of course the Homer Hanky-wielding fans turning the Metrodome into a house of horrors for opposing teams. Many consider the 1991 series among the greatest ever played, as the Twins faced down the powerhouse Atlanta Braves
Dodgers( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What a change of scenery!" The 1959 World Series featured the NL Los Angeles Dodgers beating the AL Chicago White Sox, four games to two, in the first World Series games ever played on the West Coast. The 1963 Series matched two-time defending champions, the New York Yankees against the Dodgers, with the Dodgers sweeping the Series in four games to capture their second title in five years. In 1965, the Dodgers took on the Minnesota Twins, who had won their first pennant since 1933. It became the third Dodger title since their move to Los Angeles in 1958. In 1981, the Dodgers were in their third Series in five years. They won in six games for their first title since 1965, and their first victory over the Yankees since 1963. The 1988 Series matched the Dodgers against Oakland A's, with the Dodgers upsetting the heavily favored A's to win in five games, the opposite result of their 1974 meeting. The highlight came when injured Dodgers MVP Kirk Gibson, who could barely walk due to injuries suffered during the NLCS, hit a pinch-hit, walk-off home run off closer Dennis Eckersley in Game 1
