The St. Louis Cardinals won the World Series and A&E and MLB have put out a pair of related titles. Here’s what they have to say for themselves:
They believed. They wanted it. More than 10 games out of the postseason in late August, the St. Louis Cardinals battled back into contention and claimed a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season. They then overcame the heavily-favored Philadelphia Phillies, and prevailed against the division-rival Milwaukee Brewers. Facing off against the Texas Rangers in the 107th World Series, the Cardinals fell behind 3-2 in the best-of-seven series despite the unprecedented performance of Albert Pujols. Returning to Busch Stadium for the electrifying Game 6, the Redbirds rallied from two runs down and one strike away from elimination in both the ninth and 10th innings, when hometown hero David Freese crushed an all-time walk-off home run in the 11th inning to force a Game 7. Then, in the deciding game — an astounding 89% of all households in St. Louis witnessed a gutsy start by ace Chris Carpenter and a clutch two-run double from World Series MVP David Freese to deliver the franchise’s 11th World Series Championship.
In the OFFICIAL 2011 WORLD SERIES FILM, the annual, crowning program from Major League Baseball Productions, St. Louis native and narrator Jon Hamm (“Mad Men”) delivers the redoubtable Redbirds championship run, from first pitch to last in a pulse-pounding documentary format. Providing comprehensive highlights, exclusive access and interviews, plus breath-taking footage and sounds captured by MLB cameras and microphones throughout the series, this DVD is a perfect way to relive the epic battle against the Texas Rangers.

LOUIS CARDINALS 2011 WORLD SERIES COLLECTOR’S EDITION.
