Even better? If you live in or near St. Louis, you can attend a red-carpet premiere hosted by Major League Baseball, the Cardinals and Budweiser next Tuesday at 8 p.m. at the Peabody Opera House. Members of the Cardinals family and other VIPs are scheduled to attend the premiere. Tickets start at $15 and are available for purchase here.
The World Series DVD was created by Major League Baseball Productions and features behind-the-scenes access, never-before-seen footage and exclusive interviews with all the key participants. This film is part of a tradition that dates back to 1943, when the U.S. State Department commissioned Major League Baseball to create a highlight reel of the World Series for troops fighting overseas.
Narrated by St. Louis native and Mad Men star Jon Hamm, the official 2011 World Series DVD can be pre-ordered here (DVD and Blu-ray), along with the eight-disc collector’s edition that includes all seven complete World Series games.
