Magic in Minnesota: Remembering the 1991 World Series Championship
Customers who bought this item also bought
In more than 100 years of World Series play there have been many that could be considered memorable and a handful that might be classified as unforgettable. But only one can be called the best ever – and for many the 1991 World Series between the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins was just that. Consider:
Five games decided by one run; Four games won in the last at-bat; Three extra inning games -- the most ever; And the final two games deserve a place in a time capsule.
MAGIC IN MINNESOTA revels in the mesmerizing masterpiece of Jack Morris’ 1-0, 10-inning Game 7 and Kirby Puckett’s unbelievable heroics in Game 6. This celebration salutes the contributions of superstars, support players, and the deafening, intimidating Minnesota Twins fans who electrified the Metrodome like never before and includes: Interviews with two-time World Champions manager Tom Kelly, Kent Hrbek, Gene Larkin, Dan Gladden, and John Gordon; Extensive game highlights, exclusive footage, and more!
MAGIC IN MINNESOTA is more than just another film about just another championship team. It’s about the Twins – your Twins – and perhaps the greatest World Series of all time.

After a short introduction talking a bit about the '91 season in general (the setup), the action quickly shifts to the World Series, where each game is described in-depth. I've seen numerous films about that 1991 World Series, but this is probably the most comprehensive (even more so than the "official" highlight version). Each game is given its fair share.
The action is mainly narrated by current MN Twins broadcaster Dick Bremer, interspersed of course with Twins/Braves radio calls and Jack Buck's national television broadcast. Many key Twins players weigh in on the action, but the primary analysis comes from Kent Hrbek, Gene Larkin, Dan Gladden, Tom Kelly, and radio announcer John Gordon.
If paired with "Simply The Best: The Story of the 1991 Minnesota Twins" (a title that is sadly still only available on VHS tape), that combination would give any baseball fan a nearly-perfect view of the 1991 Minnesota Twins championship season.
