An oldie but a goodie?

That remains to be seen, but Baseball National posted this about one of the few baseball movies that I have missed: the 1953 vehicle Big Leaguer, starring Edward G. Robinson as a former, well, big leaguer.

Pro ballplayers Tony Ravish (!), Bob Trocolor, Harv Tomtor (in an uncredited role), and Al “Necessities” Campanis all appeared as themselves. Because, you know, they were such huge stars back then.

Yippee! Just found out the whole film is available via YouTube!

You’re welcome.
