Minnesota Twins( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 43 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
Oakland Athletics( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "A's"--Originated in Philadelphia, moved to Kansas City, finally settled in Oakland--captured the first World Series in their new home in 1972 against the Johnny Bench led Cincinnati Reds. In 1973, the "Swingin' A's" (thanks to their in-clubhouse fighting and hitting) took down Yogi Berra's New York Mets. Pitcher Rollie Fingers performance in '74 led to Most Valuable Player status for him, as the A's won in five over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 1989 Series was the first featuring teams in the same metro area since 1956, as the A's took on their cross bay rivals, the San Francisco Giants. At 5:04 pm, October 17, action in game three was halted by the Loma Prieta earthquake, which delayed subsequent games for ten days. After resuming play, the Oakland boys needed only four games to topple the Giants, but this emotional series transcended baseball

The Pittsburgh Pirates 1979 World Series( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1979 World Series was a rematch of sorts: in 1971, the Orioles won the first two games only to lose to the Pirates in seven. The 'Oriole Magic' of '79 was a team with intelligence, strong fundamentals, and guile who pitched well, made key plays, hit in the clutch, came from behind, and won games in unusual ways. The Pirates key ingredient was 38-year-old Willie "Pops" Stargell, whose clubhouse demeanor, simple good-heartedness, and friendly manner helped keep the Pirates loose. His three home runs led to his becoming the oldest player to win both the regular season and World Series MVP. Adopting "We Are Family" by the Philadelphia disco group Sister Sledge as a theme song, Pirates vs. Orioles history would repeat itself, as the Bucs came back from a three games to one deficit to win the 1979 Series in seven

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this Series the powerhouse Cardinals, making their third World Series appearance in a six-season span, were expected to make quick work of the supposedly hapless Twins. Game 3 was in a traditional outdoor setting, as the Cardinals returned to their own ballpark. The speed-oriented Cardinals were confident they would prosper at home, and did, posting a 4-2 triumph. One victory away from the Series crown, to clinch it the Cards would have to score a breakthrough at the Metrodome. But the Twins were very good at home. Very, very good--they forced the Cardinals and the Series to go the distance--back to Minneapolis and the Twins first Series win
