Redbird Rants is happy to once again be working with the United Cardinal Bloggers and A&E to promote a new St. Louis Cardinals DVD covering the 2011 World Series. The good news is we are giving away a few copies to some lucky readers.
First title up is the 4/17/12 release of BASEBALL’S GREATEST GAMES: 2011 WORLD SERIES GAME 6 Bluray/DVD Combo Pack. Here is the excerpt from A&E.
“The St. Louis Cardinals thrilled Cardinal Nation with a game full of heart-stopping comebacks, including a spectacular 11th inning walk-off home run. Hometown hero and budding star David Freese smashed the solo shot in the final inning that provided a fitting finale to a spectacular Fall Classic matchup.
In Game 6 of the 2011 World Series, on the edge of elimination, the Cardinals trailed five times and were twice down to their last strike. But Freese, Lance Berkman and a resilient lineup evened the score each time until Freese delivered the second of his incredible moments–the wondrous walk-off homer. All of the drama, thrills, exhilaration and jubilation of this Fall Classic masterpiece are here to enjoy for the first time in pristine HD with the roar of the crowd in 5.1 surround sound.
Direct from the archives of Major League Baseball, this extraordinary television broadcast includes the quintessential making of an iconic moment, and one unforgettable baseball game available for the first time on Blu-Ray!
