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 had won 104 games and then swept the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series. But 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. Finally, the Dodgers had the inspirational lion-hearted leadership of the 1988 National League MVP Kirk Gibson, who with one dramatic swing crushed the spirit of the Athletics and carved out a special place in the World Series pantheon. This 7-disc DVD collectible is the perfect gift for the Dodgers enthusiast in your life! Running time is approximately 17 hours, 50 minutes total plus extras.
