Three DVDs to Go


Quick quiz update: We’ve received correct answers from two readers thus far, meaning three of you still have a chance to win the fabulous Baseball’s Greatest Games: 1986 World Series Game 6 [1] from A&E Home Entertainment in association with MLB Productions. To reiterate, this is the entire NBC broadcast of the game that began October 25, 1986 and careened into the earliest hour of October 26, 1986 (so it’s only appropriate the contest wander into a second day). What makes the DVD extra special is an audio track featuring Bob Murphy and Gary Thorne doing their play-by-play on WHN, which you can sync to the video…which is both how I watched and listened to the bottom of the tenth [2] in real time 25 years ago and how I enjoyed the DVD on my first viewing.

If you want to buy it for yourself or a loved one, buy it here [1]. If you want to win it, win it here [3]. There are 18 questions — including a now accurately composed Question 4 — and all the answers can be divined with a a little scrolling and clicking on Baseball-Reference’s postseason page [4] (with a dash of your innate Mets knowledge coming in handy). The subject is former Mets pitchers who, like Darren Oliver and Octavio Dotel in Game Five of this year’s Fall Classic, have either won or lost World Series games.

So go play and go win!
