Cast overview:


Babe Ruth gets off a train, and joins in a baseball game with some kids who refuse to believe he is the Babe until one of them produces a newspaper with his photograph. His first action is as pinch runner when one kid is called indoors by his mother. He then gives a lesson in correct sliding technique, gives some batting tips, and hits an inside-the-park homerun against a quaking pitcher before grabbing his jacket and running for the departing train.

Nice Surprise
16 June 2004 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Like the previous poster, I discovered this on the "For Love of the Game" DVD. It was not listed on the DVD at all, I just snooped around, right-clicked on Title 6, Chapter 2, and voila.

The acting was atrocious, reminded me of Our Gang, but who cares? It was very cute, we got to see America of the 30's: Steam locomotives, sandlot baseball with those tiny "gloves" they used, rocks for bases, a mattress for the catcher's chest guard, a tiny umpire with attitude, and a rural way of life. Babe, originally rejected to play by the 10-year-old manager, gets in the game when the runner at first is called home by Mom to finish choppin' the wood. And Babe looked great, as he was only about 37 years old at the time. Took a lot of nerve sliding on a field with all those rocks and thorns.
