Disc 1: Mickey Mantle: In His Own Words-
One of the greatest and most legendary heroes the game of baseball has ever known, Mickey Mantle was truly an American icon. This exclusive film is a warm remembrance of "The Mick."

Disc 2: Yogi Berra: In His Own Words-
Yogi Berra is a national icon, a true American folk hero. Through the years we have laughed at his "Yogi-isms," everything from "Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded.," to the now legendary "It ain't over til it's over." But Yogi Berra the man is so much more than just funny sayings. This film is the most definitive show ever done on Yogi's life and career. Why? Because Yogi himself tells his own story in his own words. Featured are never-before-seen photos from the Berra family, as well as incredible color footage from the great Yankee teams of the 1950s (provided by the Yogi Berra Museum and the Berra Family). Special guests include MICKEY MANTLE, GEORGE STEINBRENNER, DEREK JETER, TINO MARTINEZ, CARL ERSKINE, WILLIE MAYS, DUKE SNIDER and many more. Also includes a special premium chapter which will include his best TV commercials from throughout his career.
Disc 3: Gil Hodges: The Quiet Man-
Gil Hodges was a man of great character, dignity and courage. He was without question one of the most beloved men in the history of the game. As the first baseman for the legendary Brooklyn Dodgers of the Fifties, and as the manager of the 1969 World Champion Miracle Mets, Gil Hodges made baseball history. This film is the story of his life, from his boyhood in Indiana to his glory days with the Dodgers, his managerial career with the Mets, and his untimely and tragic death at age 47 in 1972. Special guests include DUKE SNIDER, CARL ERSKINE, RALPH BRANCA, TOM SEAVER, DON NEWCOMBE, RACHEL ROBINSON, and many more.
