Detroit Historical Museum says
“Play Ball!” was the first baseball motion picture with sound ever made. It was filmed in Detroit during the 1934 Tiger season, when baseball mania was sweeping through the City. It was written and directed by George Moriarty and premiered at the Book-Cadillac Hotel (Detroit) on January 9, 1935. The film was viewed by two million people in 1935 before fading into obscurity.
