Comments about this product:
I saw the dvd on HBO Sports and liked it so much that I went online at HBO's shopping site and bought 2 copies, one for me and the other for my sister. We are both serious baseball fans, esp. when old-time NY Yankees are involved! I had heard many years ago that Babe Ruth stole home one time; I didn't believe it was true because he was so heavy, but it's in the DVD! Great coverage of an immortal and amazing player!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
