Shout! Factory Dec. 3 will release The 2019 World Series, the official recap film of Major League Baseball’s championship series, on Blu-ray and DVD.
Narrated by NBC “Today” anchor Craig Melvin, the recap film will guide viewers through the highlights of the Nationals’ run to the first championship in franchise history, with Washington winning the National League Wild Card en route to overcoming the American League champion Astros and their MLB-best 107 wins.
The historic series also marked the first time every game was won by the visiting team, as the Nationals, led by Series MVP Stephen Strasburg, came back from a 3-2 series deficit, and were behind 2-0 in the seventh inning of the decisive seventh game.
Also due Dec. 3 will be The 2019 World Series Collector’s Edition: Washington Nationals, an eight-disc set on Blu-ray and DVD containing the game broadcasts for the Nationals’ seven-game victory over the Houston Astros. The set will also include the National’s clinching game of the National League Championship Series over the St. Louis Cardinals.
The special edition game boxed set includes SleeveStats inserts, which offer official stats and game trivia, as well as four audio options for each game — the national broadcast, the Washington Nationals Radio Network, the opponent’s Radio Network, or a Spanish-language version of the broadcasts.
