“Here comes McGrip’s beautiful curve,” says the announcer in Tex Avery’s Batty Baseball. And a beauty it is. The fans in the stands appreciate it. Note the war-time salute.
Ray Abrams, Ed Love and Preston Blair are the animators. John Wald is the announcer. It sounds like Pinto Colvig got in one line as McGrip but was replaced later in the cartoon with Kent Rogers. And the growly ball player who stopped the action in the cartoon’s best gag? I think it’s Harry Lang. I can’t get some of the growly voices in Avery’s Metro cartoons straight, but it sounds like the same guy who was the black cat in Bad Luck Blackie.
