Synopsis by C. Dwayne Smith
In a battle of the boroughs, the Bronx Bombers beat the Dodgers of Brooklyn to capture the 1953 World Series. This tape brought to video by Major League Baseball is a recount of the six games that had Yankee legend and perennial bad boy Billy Martin batting .500 with 12 hits and eight runs batted in. This 30-minute black and white retrospective highlights such baseball 'gods' as Mickey Mantle, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson and the National Leagues Most Valuable Player, catcher Roy Campanella. By winning the '53 series the New York Yankees made history by capturing their fifth consecutive World Series championship.
