This is the start of the Golden Era of the Athletics in the 1970s., 13 December 2010
Author: charlessmith702210 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Of course, the Oakland A's squared off against the Cincinnati Reds in a 7-game marathon.

The shots of the several World Series games taking place at Oakland's Alameda County Coliseum will bring the A's fans who were there in the World Series of 1972, 1973, and 1974, closer to the era of Charles Finley, who became a sort of "Bill Veeck" of this Oakland stadium--just like Bill Veeck was to Comiskey Park with the Chicago White Sox. We find out that in the A's sojourns in the 1972 series, as well as 1973 and 1974 series later on, Finley's gimmicks at the Coliseum ranged from the gentle--like the ballgirl on the field (she was known as Debbie Fields)--to the noisy---like fireworks exploding in the air after an A's homer.

This film is going to be really a delight and perhaps a memorable archive for even the Cincinnati Reds fans, because the grand finale game, Game 7, which took place at Riverfront Stadium, was taking place at perhaps the development of the Cincinnati Reds' "Big Red Machine". Partially, this is because the great Pete Rose played for the team in this series. Sadly, Riverfront Stadium is no more...it had been torn down and replaced by a newer stadium, The Great American Ballpark.

I am guessing that the ending of the film, just as soon as the A's got the final out at Cincinnati that gave the Athletics the 1972 world championship, where a barbershop quartet and a piano accompanist performed "Sweet Marie" as the credits roll, was probably requested by A's third baseman, Sal Bando, but this is speculatory, because Sal is short for "Salvatore" in Italian.
