During my youth I always counted on seeing the movie It Happens Every Spring this time of year. Not a serious movie nor a particularly great one, Ray Milland played a geeky chemistry professor who turned into major leaguer King Kelly because he accidentally discovered a wood repellent chemical to place on the ball.
Whether a movie about the game, a player or simply in a scene, baseball has provided many classic scenes and moments. Here are my top 3 favorites, so enjoy and feel free to comment on your favorites.
Here’s a baseball movies reference from Baseball Alamanc.
Number 3: The one that cracks me up
