Disney How to Hook Up Your Home Theater: The All-American Game of Baseball

Baseball is considered one of the great American games and the national pastime of millions. The player is an all-around athlete, requiring limber brains and well-coordinated muscles, not only in the throwing arm but of the entire body to obtain that bullet-like delivery of the ball.

The pitcher or hurler is the most important man on the team, for pitching demands such skills and techniques. The opposing team has the batter, who carefully selects his favorite stick or bat. The play starts when the batter hits the ball. Strangely enough, the pitcher tries to keep the batter from hitting the ball. To accomplish this, the pitcher holds the ball in such a manner as to cause it to curve when thrown. The spit ball is also used to further dampen the batter’s spirits. The speed ball is referred to as the fireball, smoke ball, etcetera.

Now, we can fully appreciate that thrill of thrills, the World Series. The bases are loaded, the pitch is an awful spot, and the crowd is going crazy. A half-million dollars and the World Series hinge on this pitch. It’s a terrific pitch; he literally knocked the horsehide off the old apple. Runner tears for first, and the crowd is going absolutely mag. Here comes the ball, and it looks like the fielder has it, but he dropped it. There goes a manhole run, and run, it’s a race for home. Flight, slide, slide, this is going to be close.

Well, folks, it’s up to the umpire, that impartial pillar of judicial dignity whose word is law. Free speech, that great American privilege, is thoroughly enjoyed by players and spectators alike. That’s why the national sport will always be that good old American game, baseball.

Disney’s film, “How to Hook Up Your Home Theater,” presents a humorous take on the challenges of setting up a home theater system. However, we can always count on the all-American game of baseball to entertain us with its thrilling plays and exciting matches. From the pitcher’s curveball to the batter’s swing, baseball is a sport that requires skill, technique, and athleticism. It’s no wonder why it remains a beloved and cherished part of American culture.
