YouTube Short from the Walt Disney 1942 Series, “Goofy, How To Play Baseball”
This is a hilarious movie “short” that’s been around since 1942. The scenes showing the pitcher throwing the various balls, i.e., spit, slow, curve, etc., are laugh- out- loud funny! I think it’s probably a good idea to know a little something about baseball before you watch it, or you’re going to be one confused baseball player and/or fan, as the case may be.
Don’t you kind of miss these old Disney cartoons? We’ve come a long way with technology, but in some ways we haven’t progressed at all. It’s rather sad that the young kids today aren’t experiencing this good old-fashioned wholesome entertainment.
Thanks for the good stuff Mr. Disney. It’s not very sophisticated by today’s standards, but it was sure a lot of fun!
Just killing a little time here before the regular baseball season resumes. Is it Friday yet?

This short was specifically made to be shown before “The Pride Of The Yankees” as a way to lighten the mood. Great stuff!
I’ll bet it worked ~ lightened the mood I mean! Thanks for the comment Peter.
