Now that holiday season is into full swing, I’m going to start pimping some DVD releases that should not be overlooked for gift possibilities. While not for everyone, certainly there’s somebody on your list who might appreciate such a disc.
We start with the “Official 2011 World Series Film,” which hit stores yesterday. I don’t follow sports, but friends who do tell me this year’s World Series was a big deal, especially if you were rooting for the St. Louis Cardinals.

But turnaround after turnaround resulted in — spoiler alert! — the team beating the Texas Rangers and walking off with its 11th series championship, a franchise record.
“Official 2011 World Series Film” relives that championship season in a documentary format that features highlights, interviews and behind-the-scenes footage, all narrated by “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, whose mere voice turns women to Silly Putty.
