HBO Sports Presents...
The stories of three of baseball?s greatest legends now available in a 3-pack. Mantle: The Definitive Story of Mickey Mantle The almost mythic career of Yankee slugger Mickey Mantle is the subject of this acclaimed HBO Sports documentary special. Over 18 seasons with the Bronx Bombers, despite constant nagging injuries, Mantle managed to hit 536 home runs, twice hitting more than 50 in a season. To this day, ?The Mick? remains the greatest switch-hitter in baseball history; however, behind his country charm and good looks there was his wayward lifestyle that harmed his marriage, his relationship with his four sons and ultimately his health. Where Have You Gone, Joe DiMaggio? A great ? and greatly loved ? baseball player, Joe DiMaggio is one of the few men to truly define the spirit of baseball and, in so doing, capture the hearts of a nation. His 56-game, record-breaking hitting streak; delivering the Yankees nine World Series championships; three time Most Valuable Player; and most eligible bachelor, married twice, the second time to screen goddess Marilyn Monroe; this is a lifetime of great glories, great tragedies, but always, great baseball. Babe Ruth ? The Life Behind the Legend He was a legend in his own time, and a legend for all time. He saved our national pastime from the disgrace which followed the 1919 ?Black Sox: scandal, and brought baseball back to the heartland of America. He was a generous and wild, playful and free-living, loving of children, charity and the game. He was a baseball player the world came to know as Babe Ruth.
