Coy Pitcher

“McGrip starts his wind-up, and here’s the throw,” announces the play-by-play man (John Wald) in Batty Baseball (1944). The pitcher shows off his coy side after tossing the ball.

Ray Abrams, Ed Love and Preston Blair are the credited animators in this Tex Avery cartoon for MGM.


  1. This scene was Ed Love, as are most of the other scenes with the pitcher.

  2. The one (cue "Friends" TV show episode title meme) "with the action before the titles".:) It's at W.C.Field-but he doesn't work for us anymore.:)SC
