Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly and Esther Williams find romance, gangsters and lots of song and dance on the baseball diamond in the fast-paced, fun-filled musical romp Take Me Out to the Ball Game.1906. The champion ball club The Wolves' success depends on the powerhouse double play combination of O'Brien to Ryan to Goldberg. Trouble is O'Brien (Kelly--An American in Paris, Brigadoon) and Ryan (Academy Award winner Sinatra--From Here to Eternity, Pal Joey) would rather be pursuing their vaudeville career than playing baseball . . . that is until the team gets a new owner, beautiful K.C. Higgins (Williams--Dangerous When Wet). And when a professional gambler who has bet heavily against The Wolves tries every dirty trick he knows to influence the outcome of the big game, it's the baseball players against the gangsters for a wild, hysterical, musical nine innings.
