The 2011 baseball season is now officially underway.  And that got me to thinking about the many ways baseball has become a part of the culture, from movies to comedy routines.  So here are some of my favorite baseball things in video.

#1.  George Carlin's comparison of baseball to football.

#2 Abbot and Costello's "Who's on First."

#3 Greatest baseball play by play, "The Shot Heard 'Round the World"

#4 "Casey at Bat" read by James Earl Jone

#5 Thanks to shows like America's Funniest Videos, A great collection of people getting nailed with a bat or ball.

To quote Forrest Gump, There's a "gazillion" baseball movies from serious to hilarious.  What's your favorite one?
