Baseball Legends (2015/Lionsgate DVD)

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: B Main Program: B

A must for sport fans, specifically baseball, comes Baseball Legends, a four film collection on four prolific players to ever grace the league: Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Hank Aaron and Lou Gehrig - all four making the sport what it is today. Using rare and enhanced archival material and state-of-the-art production techniques the films make for an interesting watch if you are a fan or historian.

Narrated by Martin Sheen, Baseball Legends contains 4 films focusing on each legend and exclusive bonus features for a total of over four hours of content. They include American Hercules: Babe Ruth, The Immortal: Ted Williams, The Hammer of Hank Aaron, and Iron Knight: Lou Gehrig.

Presented in standard definition with a widescreen aspect ratio of 1.78:1 and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, the films look fine on DVD, but could benefit to a Blu-ray upgrade as this is well made.

Extras include The Making of American Hercules: Babe Ruth, rare player interviews, historic game footage, Ted Williams Hall of Fame induction, extended interviews with various experts and archival footage from the Major League Baseball Film & Video Archive.
