Baseball Fun
8 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The clip actually makes some attempts at being educational and does well at explaining some of the basic concepts of baseball. It's filled with some humor from the 30's that doesn't go over quite as well today; it seems silly and somewhat sophomoric. But it has the Babe in it! Need I say more? Just that fact alone makes it well worth the watch. Seeing this giant in action was a real treat! This movie has great historical value, notice how the baseball crowd all wore their Sunday best to the game. Little details about how the game once was are interspersed in this very brief short. If you're interested in viewing this movie check it out on google video.
