What do you do with a pitcher whose dominance has helped his team claim two world-championship banners? If the pitcher is burly lefty George Herman Ruth, you banish him from the mound, put a bat in his hand and watch him clout one record-setting home run after another. William Bendix suits up in Yankee flannels as the renowned pitcher-turned-outfielder and Sultan of Swat in a movie that mixes fact, fiction and more fiction in a way that makes it a bit of a novelty among sports biopics.
