Reel Baseball: Baseball's Golden Era
- Genre: Sports-Baseball
- Release Date: 9/25/2012
Broadcaster Joe Garagiola narrates the greatest games of baseball's golden era in this nostalgia-packed documentary. It's unique focus is legendary ball games the way most of America witnessed them... in the movie newsreels. The venues are America's grand old ball parks: The original Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Brooklyn's Ebbets Field; the Polo Grounds, Tiger Stadium and other baseball landmarks that may be gone, but come to life again in this DVD. Witness Babe Ruth at bat; Lou Gehrig's "luckiest man" speech; Roger Maris breaking the Babe's home-run record; Pete Gray, the St. Louis Brown's one-armed outfielder; Ted William's final at-bat when he went out in grand style, ending his career with a home run, and other classic moments in baseball history. This documentary brilliantly captures the magic of "Joltin' Joe" DiMaggio, the "Say-Hey Kid" (Willie Mays), Stan "The Man" Musial and other legendary players who elevated the boys of summer to the pinnacle of American popular culture.
