Summary:
The "Golden Age" of Cleveland baseball under owner Bill Veeck is celebrated in this collectible DVD featuring one of the most star-studded pitching staffs in Major League Baseball history.

All the glory of the Cleveland Indians 1948 World Series Championship is now digitally preserved on this official DVD.

The Cleveland Indians under player-manager and 1948 American League MVP Lou Boudreau had superb hitting, but it was the pitching that led the way. Veterans Bob Feller and Bob Lemon were joined by a pair of unlikely rookies: knuckleballer Gene Bearden and, at 42 years of age, the oldest Major League Baseball rookie ever, Satchel Paige (with his 1,500 Negro League victories).

After defeating the Boston Red Sox in a one-game playoff to decide the pennant, the Indians took on the Boston Braves. Over the first four games Cleveland's pitching registered a 0.75 ERA, and sparked by the hitting of Larry Doby, the Indians won their first championship since 1920.

Bonus Film: In the glistening new Jacobs Field, the 1995 Indians team relied on overwhelming offense and a pitching staff with a league-leading ERA. Wahoo! What A Finish celebrates the dramatic come-from-behind victories that rocked "The Jake."
