The 2005 World Series film ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 87 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.

Dodger blue the championship years ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 52 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.

Cincinnati ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 39 libraries worldwide
The Cincinnati Reds have been playing professional baseball in one form or another since 1869, and through the years, they have had a variety of legendary players don the uniform. In the early and mid 1970s "The Big Red Machine" had arguably the best starting lineup from top to bottom of the previous three decades: Johnny Bench, Tony Perez, Joe Morgan, Dave Concepcion, Pete Rose, Cesar Geronimo, George Foster, and Ken Griffey. Their championship 1975 season resulted in the now legendary Game 6 against the Boston Red Sox, followed by an awesome display of professionalism and dominance in the 1976 World Series as the Reds swept the star-struck New York Yankees. After a fourteen year drought, the Reds again swept their opponent in a significant upset. Cincinnati out-pitched and out-played the defending champions, the Oakland Athletics, and completed a wire-to-wire season with their fifth championship in franchise history.
New York Yankees ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 39 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.
Dodgers ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 37 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.
Indians ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 36 libraries worldwide
The 1948 World Series matched the Cleveland Indians against the Boston Braves. The Braves had won the National League pennant for the first time since the "Miracle Braves" team of 1914, but the Indians spoiled the chance for an all-Boston World Series by winning a one-game playoff against the Boston Red Sox. Though superstar pitcher Bob Feller failed to win either of his two starts, the Indians won the Series in six games to capture their second championship and their first since 1920 (as well as their last to the present date). Having contended for the division in the aborted 1994 season, Cleveland sprinted to a 100-44 record in 1995 to win its first ever division title. After defeating the Boston Red Sox in the Division Series and the Seattle Mariners in the ALCS, Cleveland clinched a World Series berth for the first time since 1954. The World Series ended in disappointment with the Indians falling in six games to the Atlanta Braves.
