    A 1951 Bowman Willie Mays, no less.

      -An early episode which plot surrounded a conflict between Sisko and his first officer, the episode ends with Sisko flipping her an old school (circa 1930s I guess) White Sox cap to show he has trust in her or something or other.
      Not to pick nits, but I'm fairly sure it was a Homestead Grays cap. The point was essentially the same, that he wanted to get to know her better and relate on a more personal (though not romantic) level by going to a recreated ball game.

        Okay, after some Googling, here are both the cap that Sisko tossed to Kira Nerys and the '51 Bowman Mays which his son Jake got him for his birthday. I was looking for the former and found the latter along the way.

          Well, I didn't want my uber-Trekkie ness to show ALL THE WAY through!

          But yeah, Jazdia's line after Sisko tells her about what his perfect date with Kassiady would be is "You do love her!"

            Baseball (and the Orioles) got a number of mentions on the HBO series The Wire... including this awesome (and NSFW) conversation.

            If you have not seen The Wire... well, you should see The Wire. Start at the beginning.

            Best. TV. Show. Ever.

              Dredging this thread up as in Public Enemies Johnny Depp as John Dillinger professes a love of baseball.

              So much so that on the day of his death (in an obviously fictional scene) he walks into the Chicago field office of the FBI & quizzes the G-Men present about the score of a Cubs game they're listening to on the radio.

                In the movie Robocop:

                In futuristic Detroit, crime lord Clarence Boddiker (That 70's Show's Kurtwood Smith in the best role he ever had) siezes the upper hand in a cocaine deal about to go south telling his opponents, "Guys, guys.... The TIGERS play (drums his hands on the desk dramatically) TONIGHT!!!! I NEVER miss a game...."

                  I like the scene from the beginning of "Glory" where it shows the Union soldiers playing Base Ball in camp. Classic!

                    Today I saw an episode of the Rockford Files in which two guys were having bar bets about players from the Angels and Padres PCL teams. Two players mentioned were Luke Easter and Dom Dellesandro.

                      Last night I watched a third season episode of Star Trek: the Next Generation about a crook who collected one of a kind items (including an unsuccessful attempt to add Data to his collection). One of his items was a mint condition 1962 Topps Roger Maris, with original bubble gum scent.

                        I'm surprised this thread has gone so long with no mention of the 1962 thriller "Experiment In Terror" in which psychotic killer Ross Martin (who has been stalking Lee Remick throughout the film) is ultimately trapped and cornered at Candlestick Park. We see a lot of action of a Dodger-Giant game, and ultimately Martin is gunned down on the Candlestick diamond.

                        The 1964 thriller "The Satan Bug" climaxes at Dodger Stadium when its discovered that a deadly nerve gas agent has been buried inside the ballpark.

                        The 1961 Cary Grant-Doris Day comedy "That Touch Of Mink" has Grant taking Doris to a Yankee game where they get to watch the action from the Yankee dugout and when Doris starts riding the umpire, he comes over and promptly ejects Mantle, Maris and Berra! (all of whom have cameos in the film).

                          In the first Ninja Turtles movie, when Raphael first meets KC Jones, he picks up one of KC's fallen bats. Reading the signature on it, Raphael exclaims, "A Jose Canseco bat? Please, tell me you didn't pay money for this!"

                              I just watched ‘Black Irish’ about two brothers growing up in South Boston, one a likable & promising ball player, the other a scumbag dealer. Good movie.

                              One of my all time favourite movies is The Warriors. The Baseball Furies were soooooo cool. :cap:

                                Just saw the movie "Reds" on TCM a few nights back. While Cincinnati didn't get mentioned, Beatty's character of Jack Reed does mention the New York Yankees while arguing with his wife.
