Red Sox World Series Film Is A True Keepsake

The Official 2013 World Series Film (Lionsgate and A&E Entertainment) is now out on DVD. FenwayNation was fortunate enough to get an early copy of the DVD and—trust us—this is one you are going to want to get. Somehow, the 2013 World Series Championship had an extra compelling aspect to it—simply because it was so totally unexpected. That element jumps out in this film in little post-season turning points—like Mike Napoli (previously 0-6 with 6 Ks in the ALCS) taking Justin Verlander deep in a scoreless Game 3. How about John Lackey's head-to-head battle with Verlander in the same game? Or, Shane Victorino's 0-2 salami in ALCS clinching Game 6?  In World Series Game One, Jon Lester had a bases-loaded one out jam and gets a come-backer to start a 1-2-3 double play. A 21-year old Xander Bogaerts getting two huge hits in "ObstructionGate" Game Three of the World Series. Jonny Gomes' three-run jack (subbing for Victorino) in World Series Game Four. Felix Doubront and Lackey tossing zeroes in relief —also in Game Four. Unexpected—but they all happened. Just like the championship itself. About the only unexpected aspect of the post-season was the performance of David Ortiz. Most importantly, this film is brimming with the emotional commitment of each and every team member to a city that was scarred so badly on Marathon Monday. Looking back, it couldn't have turned out any other way. Boston—and Red Sox—Strong. You gotta get this DVD. Get it HERE.
