Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A lazy Technicolored cinemusical aimed squarely and accurately at the summer box office."
‑ , TIME Magazine
"What matters is the stylish ebullience, and the excellent score by Roger Edens, Adolph Green and Betty Comden."
‑ Tom Milne, Time Out
"This wonderful MGM musical has super songs, ravishing Technicolor and extraordinary talent both behind and in front of the camera."
‑ Tony Sloman, Radio Times
"The American pastime was never more fun."
‑ John Urbancich, Your Movies (cleveland.com)
"There is no pretense that Ball Game is anything more than a romp for Kelly's virtuosity."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"The plot is typical fluff -- Kelly and Sinatra join Esther Williams's baseball team at the turn of the century -- but the production values are, as always, worth the price of admission."
‑ Don Druker, Chicago Reader
"An enjoyable, snappy period baseball musical comedy."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Light-as-air Technicolor comedy in which Kelly and Sinatra star as major league players who can hold their own on the dance floor as well as on the pitch."
‑ , Film4
"It must be said, too, that Mr. Kelly and his side-kick do right nicely by a brisk thing called "Yes, Indeedy," as well as the title song."
‑ Bosley Crowther, New York Times
"While there's not much baseball played here, this is an amiable film, marked by the enjoyable cast and some lively, if not memorable, music."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"It's brilliant music, and the comedy is a snap."
‑ David Cornelius, DVDTalk.com
