• Yankee Stadium: Baseball’s Cathedral DVD

    Posted by on May 21st, 2008 · Comments (4)

    This one is due out on July 1st.

    From what I can tell, this is what will be on it:

    1 Lou Gehrig Speech
    2 Mickey Mantle’s 1964 World Series Game 3 Walk-Off HR
    3 Chris Chambliss’ 1976 ALCS Game 5 Walk-Off HR
    4 Yankees Return After Thurman Munson’s Funeral
    5 George Brett And The Pine Tar Game
    6 Highlights From Jim Abbott’s No Hitter
    7 Don Mattingly’s HR In The 1995 ALDS Game 2
    8 Highlights From 1999 World Series Game 4
    9 Derek Jeter’s 2001 ALDS Dive
    10 Hideki Matsui’s First Major League Grand Slam
    11 Aaron Boone’s 2003 ALCS Game 7 HR
    12 Tour Of Yankee Stadium From “Cathedrals Of The Game”

    Now, I realize that there’s a lot of things that happened at the Stadium, say, before 1976 that they just don’t have a lot of footage to pull from…but…

    Highlights from the 1999 World Series over highlights from the 2001 World Series?

    (And, that’s just the first thing that jumps into my head.)

    I’m hoping that the above 12 are just the “extras” on the DVD and that there will be lots more stuff on it. Reportedly, the “DVD takes a look back at the House that Ruth Built from its opening day in 1923, to opening day 2008, the stadium’s final season in operation.”

    I’ll probably get this one just for the “tour” feature. As I learn more about this one, I will share it here.

      I would’ve thought they or MLB had it archived somewhere.

      Steve, are these moments, or complete games?

      I also agree, 1999 but no 2001? Are they angry at Tino & Paulie? Are they angry at Reggie & Puff too (no 1977 & 78)

      I doubt they are complete games. That would be a boxed set and not just one or two DVDs.

      Yeah, that was a pretty boneheaded question, come to think of it… :D
