New DVD on the Tribe's 1948 World Series run


Jonesing for more Tribe action after the weekend's on-again, off-again schedule? A&E Home Video's new Cleveland Indians World Series Vintage Film Collection: 1948 DVD oughta do the trick. The disc features plenty of archive footage of the Indians from back in the day. Best is watching pitchers Bob Feller, Bob Lemon, Gene Bearden, and Satchel Paige (making his league debut at the age of 42) in action. There are also many shots of the old Municipal Stadium. Bonus features include Wahoo! What A Finish, a doc about the Tribe's 1995 season — the last time they were this close to snagging the World Series title they won in 1948. --Michael Gallucci
