In the 'newsreel' after the World Series game, the voice-over says that the Yankees scored seven runs in that inning, and that Babe Ruth drove in four. This is impossible because of simple math. Babe Ruth led off the inning with a strikeout - one out. The next batter also goes down - two outs. The kid (third batter of the inning) then gets an in-the-park home run - one run in and still two outs. Then let's assume that batters #4, 5, and 6 get singles without scoring. Every consecutive batter who follows must then drive in a run (no more outs to give). So if batters #7, 8, and 9 each drive in a run, the Yankees have already scored four runs in the inning by the time Ruth comes back up to bat. If he drives in four more, the Yankees will have scored eight in the inning, not seven as announced. See more »
That guard had to have stolen Babe Ruth's bat!
Why would a guard working at Yankee Stadium steal Babe Ruth's bat? Now, if it were somebody workin' at the stadium in Chicago, I could see that...

Cute, fast-moving kiddie cartoon, loosely based on a true story, about a kid who comes into possession of Babe Ruth's missing bat and treks from New York to Chicago to return it to him -- right in the middle of the World Series. Since this is a cartoon, the bat and the kid's baseball both have faces and talk. Whoopi Goldberg is perfect as the the old bat (heh heh). The animation is simple and the action never flags. The finale is a real crowd pleaser. And this review comes from someone who gave up watching cartoons a long time ago, especially CGI cartoons. Maybe it was the baseball angle that kept me watching this one. I am a lifelong Yankees fan, after all.
