Major League Baseball has produced a documentary of the 2018 Red Sox World Series championship run that will premiere in Boston next week.
The damage has been done yet we’ll never tire of reliving the moments that led to the Boston Red Sox celebrating another World Series championship. Soon we’ll have the opportunity to watch those moments again as often as we like.
Major League Baseball will host the premiere for a documentary they produced of the 2018 Red Sox on Monday, December 3 at the Emerson Colonial Theatre (106 Boylston St. in Boston).
Red Carpet festivities will begin at 6 p.m. with the film scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. General Admission tickets can be purchased online at MLB.com for $30.
Red Sox manager Alex Cora and president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski are expected to attend to premiere. Maybe even a few players will stop by.
The documentary narrated by Emmy Award-winning actress Uzo Aduba chronicles the franchise record 108-win regular season followed by Boston’s 11-3 postseason run that culminated with a World Series victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Aduba, who plays Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren on the hit Netflix show Orange Is the New Black, is a Boston-area native and Boston University graduate who grew up a Red Sox fan. She’s the first woman to narrate an official World Series documentary, which MLB has been producing annually since 1943.
Relive all the moments from an epic 2018 season. Highlights of an MVP campaign from Mookie Betts, J.D. Martinez chasing the Triple Crown, the four-game sweep of the Yankees in July that led to the “Do Damage” mantra, David Price‘s postseason redemption. These are the types of moments we can expect to see in this documentary. All the way up until Chris Sale sending a flailing Manny Machado down to one knee chasing a third strike that clinched the World Series.
The behind-the-scenes footage, interviews, and audio picked up by microphones on the field create a unique perspective for fans to enjoy. MLB always does a tremendous job producing these documentaries, including ones highlighting when the Red Sox won the World Series in 2004, 2007, and 2013. We should expect no less from them this time.
The 80-minute documentary will be available for purchase on Blue-ray and DVD starting on Tuesday. MLB is also expected to release a “Collectors Edition” eight-disc set that includes all five World Series games, the ALCS clincher against the Houston Astros and a bonus disc which includes the ALDS clincher against the New York Yankees.
