NESN is getting ready to step to the plate next month with a commemorative video of Major League Baseball's best squad this year.
Bearded Brothers: The 2013 World Champion Red Sox, the year-in-review home video that provides a complete look back at the Bosox's incredible championship run, will be available in retail stores throughout New England on both DVD ($19.95) and Blu-ray ($24.95), beginning Dec. 10.
Narrated by former Red Sox first baseman and 2004 World Series champion Kevin Millar, Band of Bearded Brothers showcases exclusive behind-the-scenes footage and never before seen highlights of how the 2013 Red Sox overcame adversities and developed into a personality-driven and resilient team.
The 81-minute film was produced by NESN, which counts 4 million homes throughout its six-state New Englan region and another 5 million via NESN National, in association with Major League Baseball Productions. It relates the untold stories that formed this team’s unique identity that helped restore the faith of Red Sox Nation with its last-to-first finish. In addition to showing every walk-off home run and many thrilling come-from-behind victories, the film includes exclusive game-day comments from Red Sox players.
The DVD and Blu-ray has over 20 minutes of additional bonus features including the emotional Boston Strong pre-game ceremony from Fenway Park on April 20; a compilation of David Ortiz’s greatest 2013 moments; exclusive Rolling Rally parade footage; a retrospective on 2013 social media messages sent by players and the team; and narrator Millar’s reflections on the club's personalities.
