Disney Countdown

Million Dollar Baseball

Since Million Dollar Arm is coming out this Friday, I thought it would be fun to remember some of Disney’s baseball movies.

Today we talk about two cartoons, the first is How to Play Baseball starring Goofy.

In this cartoon Goofy demonstrates the basic principles of baseball as well as some of the various plays and terms that one might find in the game.  Though made years before Football started to take shape as the dominant American sport, this film does through humorous imagery give us a look at baseball.

Another great one short is Casey at the Bat, where Irish player Casey finds himself to soon be a father of several girls.
