THE BASEBALL BELLES FROM CARDIFF
This is a real find!! It’s described on the Pathe News site with the following:
“Adam isn’t the only pebble on the baseball beach, girls! What about these – ” High angle shot of girls walking onto a playing field. The girls are mostly in gym slips – teenage school girls. High angle shot of a baseball game in progress. “Admittedly, we haven’t got a mighty swiper like this “home runner” (Babe Ruth).” Slow motion shots of Babe Ruth in action – he hits a ball. Slow motion footage of one of the girls missing a shot. “They may not be able to “pitch” like Walter Johnson of U.S.A.” We see slow motion footage of Walter Johnson throwing a ball. “But, they’re coming on.” Slow motion footage of the girls pitching and swinging for the ball. “Safety first!” Slow motion footage of a girl ducking as one of the bowls comes directly towards her head. More shots of the game.
The game appears to be played at the Arms Park, in the last clip, note the Brains Brewery in the back ground. And… sign up the backstop straight away!!
