Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith
Starring the New York Yankees and the $Philadelphia Phillies, this tape, brought to video by Major League Baseball, is an account of the 1950 World Series. This 30-minute, black and white, piece of baseball nostalgia documents the dominance of Casey Stengel's Yankees as they crushed their National League rivals the 'Whiz Kids' of Philadelphia. Led by such Yankee icons as Joe DiMaggio and Yogi Berra the wrecking crew from the Bronx swept their six World Series in 24 years. Rookie pitcher Ed 'Whitey' Ford captured the fourth and final game with a 5-2 victory to keep the Championship trophy in New York for the second consecutive year.
