The 1985 World Series was the crowning moment for the KC franchise. In ’85, the Club overcame a late season deficit to win the AL West Division, rallied from a 3-games-to-1 deficit to defeat Toronto in the ALCS, and capped the delirious ride with a history-making World Series victory over the rival St. Louis Cardinals. Managed by the even-keeled Dick Howser and led by veteran stars George Brett, Frank White, Dan Quisenberry and Willie Wilson, the Royals persevered and conquered their cross-state opponents behind the precocious pitching and young superstar Brett Saberhagen. The seven games in this remarkable DVD collection showcase the rollercoaster of intra-state emotions as the Cardinals flew out to grab three quick wins in the first four games, only to have the Royals capture the final three games in oh-so-dramatic fashion. For the first time ever on DVD, the MLB Production Film and Archive has opened to reveal these remarkable games that capture the beauty of a roster of all-time Royals stars, and a battle of players, managers, and intra-state cities that delighted a nation.
