Sinatra is second sacker Dennis Ryan and Kelly is shortstop Eddie O'Brien in this Busby Berkeley-directed romp that combines baseball with that other all-American pastime: romance. Esther Williams plays the new team owner and Betty Garrett is a Baseball Annie with eyes for blue-eyed Ryan. Kelly and Stanley Donen's deft musical stagings ranged from a softshoe duet charmer to an exciting "barrel roll" Kelly solo. Their work persuaded producer Arthur Freed to green-light their direction of the same year's On the Town.
