Sinatra and Kelly are professional baseball players and entertainers. Esther Williams, who recently acquired ownership of the team, supplies the love interest for both Sinatra and Kelly, until Betty Garrett shows up with her usual spunk. How can you go wrong with an American pastime and a light, cheery, and fun musical? It is good and enjoyable, but somehow, comparing it to others of its ilk, this one seems be an inning short of true satisfaction. One shouldn't really criticize the plot of a musical, because musicals are notorious for having paper-thin plots, relying mostly on its stars and the music for true flavor and enjoyment. But, "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" doesn't really start with much to it, except for Esther's figure and Ol' Blue Eyes' voice. When Betty Garrett does show up, she does manage to interject some life into it. All in all, while you could do a lot worse and while it is pleasant enough, I would recommend "On the Town" over this fair musical.
