World Series Film premiere

pMLB2-6781529dtI caught the premiere of the 2009 World Series Film tonight.  No, I wasn’t at the big one at the Ziegfeld in Manhattan, but this was good enough.

I thought the film was nicely done and it’s certainly worth the $19.99 MLB.com is charging (but if you’re a savvy Internet shopper, Amazon has it for $14.99).

The film had some great behind-the-scenes shots of the players, a variety of camera angles, and some great commentary by the managers, players and announcers.  I also liked the integration of the fantastic Game 6 time lapse video made by Robert Caplin.

One thing that I found a little strange was when the narrator failed to mention Alex Rodriguez past drug use.  The segment was about Rodriguez’s hip surgery during spring training and how it positively affected him during the regular season.  I thought for sure the steroids would be mentioned somewhere, but I was wrong and somewhat surprised by that.

I’m a nit-picker when it comes to these things, and that was really my only bone to pick with the production.

This will probably air on MLB Network throughout the winter, but this definitely makes for a nice holiday gift.

And no, I won’t spoil the ending.

I couldn't agree more. The inclusion of the steroid use would have humanized the story even more; its omission was felt in the Ziegfeld, as a collective "And ...?" Still, an excellently produced film.

From my experience, I have worked several moview premieres, I know that the area directly next to the red carpet is reserved for Press. There's usually a barricade around the whole area,

I think MLB Network is an American television specialty channel dedicated to professional baseball. It is primarily owned by Major League Baseball

It doesn’t make sense
That you should have a broken heart
If I were the only one
I’d never let you fall apart
You’re the kind of woman
That needs a man with lots of cash
