Major League Baseball All Century Team
During one game of the 1999 World Series at Atlanta's Turner Field, Major League Baseball unveiled its All-Century Team, assembling its living legends and invoking its holy ghosts in a collection that, for all intents and purposes, can be considered the best of all time. This 70-minute special about the illustrious team and its legendary members has been released on DVD with 110 minutes of additional footage, including historical play-by-plays, stats, and the Top 100 Players of All-Time event that opened the 1999 All-Star Game at Boston's Fenway Park.
The presentation of the All-Century Team -- which includes everyone from Cy Young to Willie Mays to Mark McGwire -- is embellished here through rare archival game and interview footage of its august members. Gorgeously restored and brilliantly presented on DVD, the footage allows these specters from baseball's past to become hauntingly alive, perhaps none more so than color-barrier breaker Jackie Robinson of the Brooklyn Dodgers.
