Best baseball scenes taken from non-baseball movies

Let’s face the truth, Leslie Nielsen should have been an umpire1 01 UTC

Baseball has existed 150 for some years. It is older than basketball and football, and longer than many other countries. It is a part of every culture, including books, music, and most importantly, movies. Even if a movie doesn’t focus on baseball, sometimes baseball is still incorporated into the script, making for an unforgettable cameo.

Below are our top picks from some great non-baseball movies. Are there any movies we have missed? Feel free to shout at me on Twitter.

It might be called the greatest movie without a baseball scene. Others, such as this writer, may call it the best movie of all time. The entire first Naked Gun movie could be considered a baseball movie, as the last quarter takes place during a Mariners/Angels game. Reggie Jackson plays the role of an assassin. A young Joe West appears and Leslie Nielsen calls strikes and balls, just like Cotton-Eye Joe just appeared at a wedding.

Many agree that Robin Williams’ bench scene won him his Academy Award. But watching two strangers jump into each others arms and curse over a Red Sox match that occurred 20 years ago has to be one of the most memorable moments in Good Will Hunting. It’s not about baseball, as it wraps up. Surprisingly, there are more important things in your life.

You can watch the clip below. Warning: This video contains graphic language.

3. One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest

Although there isn’t any actual baseball played in this scene, it’s an excellent one from Milos Forman’s 1975 classic. Randle McMurphy, along with the other inmates of the mental hospital, is not allowed to see the 1963 World Series by Nurse Ratched. McMurphy is brilliantly played by Jack Nicholson. He decides to imagine that he’s actually watching it. It’s difficult not to smile as he announces that Mickey Mantle and Tom Tresh have homered Sandy Koufax. Unfortunately for McMurphy this is not how the ’63 Series ended.

4. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

Ferris Bueller reminds us of what we would do if we were playing hooky at school. Steal your best friend’s car, pretend to be The Sausage King in Chicago at a nice restaurant, and then go to a baseball game. This scene contains everything: beautiful shots of Wrigley field, Harry Caray, Principal Rooney at his most pathetic.

This is the shortest and most bizarre baseball cameo. The alien bug Edgar is trying to return to his home planet near the end of Men in Black. He uses the World Expo Observatory Towers to take off in Flushing, Queens. He’s trying to escape the Earth’s atmosphere when he passes Shea Stadium. Right as Bernard Gilkey, Mets right fielder, is heading in his direction, a flyball passes him. As you might expect Bernard has trouble assessing the situation.

Peter Pan’s son, like Bobby Bonds and Ken Griffey, somehow did better at baseball than he did at it. Although Pan was able to fly, Jack could still hit dingers. He does it in a moving pirate vessel with Captain Hook on board and Smee, the poor man’s Luis Tiant on the mound.

Traffic is a heart-stopping, violent movie about the drug trade. The final scene to Brian Eno’s music is a tense and heartbreaking one. Benicio del Toro’s character in the film tells the DEA that he would give up his drug kingpin boss’s whereabouts if they could just put lights on a Little League field in his Mexican hometown. Del Torro eventually honors his side of the deal. But, we aren’t sure what the DEA thinks. Just before the credits roll, we get our answer: We hear bats hitting the ball, there is a dusty field late at night, children screaming, and Del Torro smiling from the stands.

8. Captain America: The First Avenger

The Avengers’ baseball scene is a key clue that the main character figures out what’s going on. It’s unlike any other movie on the list. Captain America, a superhero that exists in the 1940s wakes up in a room with an old transistor radio broadcasting Dodgers-Phillies games — a real Dodgers/Phillies game — from 1941. A woman approaches him and informs him that he is in New York City’s recovery room. But Steve Rogers, who knows his baseball, recalls being at the exact Dodgers-Phillies game in ’41.. It could be that he’s playing right now. He speeds through his room, discovering he has been asleep for 70 many years. He is now in the modern-day Times Square.

9. The Marx Brothers: A Night at the Opera

This is all I have to say. “Take Me Out to the Ball Game”, a song that starts during the opera, begins and the Marx Brothers do exactly what you might expect: They take out a baseball and use it as a bat with a violin.

10. Back to the Future Part II

Another baseball scene that was very brief, but it is notable for its prediction of a future no one thought would happen: The Cubs winning their first World Series. Marty McFly travels back in time from 1985 into 2015 in order to find hoverboards and people wearing tinfoil body armour. Also, to see the long-suffering Cubbies who were crowned world champions. The real-life 2015, Chicago almost fulfilled the prophecy. It was won by the Cubs the following season. This made the movie miss one year, but it caused a certain movie star to lose his mind.
