Slow Start, But Once The Game Is Played It's Hilarious
1 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The first half of this is explaining, through some somewhat-amusing examples, the basics of baseball: hitting, pitching, the different kinds of pitches, etc.

The really funny part begins when they show the bottom of the ninth inning of the last game in the World Series. It's The Gray Sox versus the Blue Sox. One team is leading 3-0 and their pitcher is throwing a no-hitter. What happens after that is hilarious as the losing team creeps back into the game with a climactic finish. The scenario is completely exaggerated for a humorous effect and it works. I found myself laughing out loud at a few of the scenes.

This short starts off slowly and gets better and better as it goes on.
