Phillies Memories: The Greatest Moments in Philadelphia Phillies History (Shout! Factory DVD)


Picture: B-     Sound: B-     Extras: B-     Documentary: A-



Phillies Memories is a must have for all Philadelphia Phillies Fans!  As one of the oldest teams in Major League Baseball the Philadelphia Phillies have accrued a plethora of memories; many that fans recall and others that have been long forgotten.  This DVD takes the viewer on a journey from the forming of the team in 1883 all the way up to the epic 2008 World Series.


With six Pennants, two Titles, and history of greatness the Philadelphia Phillies have shocked and amazed fans from the very beginning and this DVD houses many of those unforgettable moments.  The DVD is narrated by the late great Harry Kalas (who sadly passed away on April 13, 2009) and does an excellent job of capturing the enthusiasm that is the Philadelphia Phillies.


This will not be such a great DVD for any baseball fan, but for Phillies fans this is a must have and will act as a good compliment to the recently released World Series DVDs and Blu-rays.


The picture, sound and extras on this DVD are adequate and get the job done quite nicely.  The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 widescreen picture presentation has solid colors, adequate crispness and whereas the picture footage greatly varies according to which old documentary footage is used, overall it is properly presented.  The sound is presented in a Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo that once again varies according to what old footage is used, but from beginning to end the narration by Harry Kalas is spectacular and it is nice to hear his voice.


The extras include Legendary Last Outs, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” with Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard – Raw, Last Out of No-Hitters – Bunning, Wise, Mulholland, Greene, Millwood, and Larry Anderson Sprays on Fake Hair.  All of the extras are extremely entertaining and Phillies fans will find themselves showing them off to other fans as they are not only informative and entertaining, but many are very funny.
