A&E Bows Boston Red Sox World Series DVD Set2 Aug, 2005 By: Erik Gruenwedel
With the Boston Red Sox and New York Yankees' rivalry heating up in the second half of the Major League Baseball season, A&E Home Video just released The Boston Red Sox: 2004 World Series Collector's Edition DVD set ($129.95).
The 12-disc set is the first in a three-year deal with Major League Baseball Productions that will feature a Yankees set in the fourth quarter and four to five releases next year.
It features more than 35 hours of baseball broadcasts, including the Red Sox's comeback against the Yankees and commanding victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2004 World Series.
Bonus material includes official 2004 World Series film, on-field recordings, player profiles and more. Also, each DVD box has statistics from each game.
“Baseball fans love memorabilia,” said Kate Winn, VP of sales and marketing for A&E Home Video. “The packaging is a collection of statistics. It's a DVD set surrounded by baseball cards. It really is the ultimate baseball collectible.”
