Baseball movie

Nothing really to dislike.

Story a little hokey but a great use of real baseball members mixed with actors to make for realistic baseball exchanges.

A Pleasant Surprise
Verified purchase
Wasn't really expecting much from this movie since I bought it with a group of other baseball movies such as eight men out, 42 and the natural but was pleasantly surprised.
It was a nice baseball story about early spring tryouts for the new york giants, who would make the cut and who wouldn't with several interesting sub plots going as well.
Since I am a native of NYC, grown up in a time of 2 stadiums Shea & Yankee, I found it really fascinating to see, what I assume, were the actual polo grounds.
I have seen Ebbets field in many movies and pictures before but knew little more than word of mouth about the Polo grounds so it was fun to see it.
This is not one of the great baseball movies but it was light hearted with of course a little love story thrown in as well.
I would recommend it.

Cute movie about one aspect of baseball in the 1950s

Corny movie whose appeal to me was as a window into when spring training (for the Giants) was in Melbourne, Florida. Some interesting cameos by people like Carl Hubbell.

As baseball fan. I've waited for this movie to released on DVD. Strong performance by Edward G. Robinson. Vera-Ellen was excellent as the female lead.
