Amazon Pick of the Week: Red Sox two disc Blue-ray DVD combo and 8-disc complete game set on Blu-ray and DVD 

You can get these two great gifts for Red Sox and baseball fans on Shout! Factory or Amazon.

These Championship Releases from Shout! Factory and Major League Baseball are Packed with Exciting Extras, Including Regular, Postseason and Parade Highlights, Clinching Moments, SleeveStats and More!

 

The 2018 Boston Red Sox dominated their way to a World Series title in a way that baseball fans have never seen. A relentless march through the regular season led to a franchise-record 108 wins. Then they beat the Los Angeles Dodgers for their fourth World Series championship since 2004 after blowing through the rival Yankees and defending champion Astros. This December, fans across Red Sox Nation will be able to relive the exciting journey with two ultimate home entertainment collectibles, celebrating the team's unforgettable championship title run.
 
The official documentary "THE 2018 WORLD SERIES", available on two-disc Blu-ray+DVD combo pack (with digital copy)and DVD (with digital copy) and the "2018 WORLD SERIES COLLECTOR'S EDITION: BOSTON RED SOX", an 8-disc collection on Blu-ray and DVD, will both release on December 4, 2018, from Shout! Factory and Major League Baseball.
 
The 2018 Major League Baseball regular season ended with the Red Sox as favorites to win the World Series. Rookie manager Alex Cora inspired his team with an "all in" attitude and impressed with managerial mastery. Boston methodically advanced to the Fall Classic to face the Dodgers, and the Red Sox took Games 1 and 2 at Fenway Park.
 
They were defeated in a historic 18-inning battle in Game 3, and then produced a dramatic comeback win in Game 4 before the convincing clincher in Game 5 that set off a victory celebration for a lineup including Willie Mays World Series MVP Steve Pearce, Mookie Betts, Andrew Benintendi, J.D. Martinez, Jackie Bradley Jr., Mitch Moreland, Xander Bogaerts and Eduardo Nuñez, hurlers David Price, Chris Sale, Joe Kelly and Nathan Eovaldi and Cora, the first Puerto Rican manager to win a World Series championship. This talented, diverse, and historic team cemented its place in Boston lore as the greatest Red Sox team ever.
 
With camera crews capturing unique views of the Fall Classic's most mesmerizing moments, "THE 2018 WORLD SERIES" documentary is a tradition that dates back to 1943 when the U.S. State Department commissioned Major League Baseball to produce a recap of the World Series for troops overseas. Emmy Award winning actress Uzo Aduba narrates the expertly crafted 2018 documentary, edited froma multitude of original hi-def and archival footage, delivering the Red Sox breathtaking World Series run in extraordinary fashion. The comprehensive bonus features include regular season highlights, clinching moments, postseason highlights, "How They Got There" featurette and scenic footage from the duck boats at the World Series parade.
 
Die-hard baseball fans will also be able relive the team's entire World Series run with the "2018 WORLD SERIES COLLECTOR'S EDITION: BOSTON RED SOX",a 8-disc set that includes all five complete games of the World Series, the pennant-clinching ALCS Game 5 and a bonus disc of the ALDS clinching Game 4 versus the Yankees. Red Sox fans and baseball aficionados alike will relish in the opportunity to revisit all the pulse-pounding action from the 2018 Fall Classic -- from Eduardo Nuñez crushing a three-run home run in Game 1 to set the tone for the series and Steve Pearce's four RBI Game 4 to David Price's stellar starts in Games 2 and 5.
 
The perfect gift for any member of Red Sox Nation, this special edition includes SleeveStats inserts, which offer official stats and game trivia to enhance the viewing experience. Each game includes four audio options, allowing home audiences to watch the games while listening to the television broadcast, Red Sox Radio Network, opponent's Radio Network or a Spanish-language version of the broadcasts.

 

Ships quickly and you will have in plenty of time for Christmas.
