In this vintage MLB video special taking a look at the upcoming 1985 season, the viewer is given a team by team evaluation by Reds fiture Hall of Fame catcher Johnny Bench….as he travels throughout the major league ballclubs’ spring training camps for the 1985 season….as he gives an inside look at the upcoming season.

Johnny Bench leads off by visiting with New York Mets P Dwight Gooden as he begins his 1st season with newly acquired future Hall of Fame catcher Gary Carter….who would become the last key to a World Series Championship puzzle for the New York Mets. ..and as he goes from camp to camp he meets with and covers such baseball greats as Pete Rose…..who is about to great Ty Cobb’s all-time hit record of 4191….along with Padres Manager Dick Williams on his future Hall of Fame OF Tony Gwynne…..plus Cubs P Rich Sutcliffe and future HOF 2B Rynne Sandberg…..and so much more.
