1968 WORLD SERIES
Mickey Lolich vs Nelson Briles
The original TV broadcast of Game 5 of the 1968 World Series from Tiger Stadium, Detroit has just been released on a new 3-hour DVD from Rare Sportsfilms, Inc.! The broadcast contains all the original commercials and complete pre-game and post-game! This fabulous DVD presentation also includes a unique Rare Sportsfilms feature - both TV and radio game play-by-play broadcasts! You can use a menu at the beginning of the DVD to watch the game while listening to either the TV play-by-play with Curt Gowdy and George Kell, or the radio call by Jack Buck and Pee Wee Reese! Many fans will want to watch the game twice - viewing the TV picture while listening to first the TV audio, and then later watching with the radio audio! You can also bounce back and forth between radio and TV half inning by half inning if you wish, to further compare both historic play-by-play accounts!
At game time, the St. Louis Cardinals have a commanding 3-1 game lead in the series as the teams warm up for this last game to be played at Detroit. The Cardinals have already beaten Detroit's 31-game winner Denny McLain twice and today the Tigers, with their backs to the wall, are calling on their only winning pitcher so far Mickey Lolich, to save them from losing the World Series. The Tigers as a team have not been hitting, whereas Cardinal lead-off man Lou Brock has been unstoppable, hitting .500 with a double, triple, HR, 5 RBI's and 5 stolen bases so far! Now you can "be there" in front of your old B & W TV set almost 50 years later to watch this historic game unfold! This will turn out to be the most exciting game of the series, and Willie Horton, Bill Freehan and Lou Brock all figure in the pivotal play of the series! Al Kaline, playing his first World Series in his 16th seasons with Detroit, is the batting hero of the day! This broadcast brings back all the memories of those late 1960's televised World Series games and baseball as it was played half a century ago!
