Diamond Demon (1947)

*** (out of 4)

Fun Pete Smith short takes a look at minor league baseball player Johnny Price. If you haven't heard of Price then you're not alone as I had no idea who he was but after viewing this short it's doubtful you'll forget him. Basically we have Price doing a variety of tricks dealing with baseball. We start off at the small stuff like seeing him hold two baseballs with one hand and then we get more challenging stuff. This includes him standing at home plate and throwing two balls with one hand. One is thrown to the pitcher and the other to the man on second base. We have him throwing three balls with one hand to three different men. We even see Price hanging upside down hitting, pitching and catching. Some of these tricks were just downright crazy including where he holds the bat between his legs to hit and if the pitch had been an inch or two higher then he wouldn't have had any children if you catch what I mean. This short runs a very brief 8-minutes but there's some nice tension in some of the dangerous tricks but at the same time you can't help but smile at the unique talent.
