* Parodied in an episode of ''Anime/ExcelSaga''. The girls are sent to Excel's old high school to find out what today's youth are interested in, and up coaching the school's baseball team, a RagTagBunchOfMisfits that are the worst team in the city.

* ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' also had a baseball game between purported Americans (including Abner Doubleday) and a local team that includes Mugen, Jin, and Fuu. Guess who wins. Well, okay, technically nobody, but whatever.

* This also happened in an issue of ''ComicBook/YoungJustice'', which played out very much like the ''Anime/SamuraiChamploo'' episode, only here, the invaders were ''aliens''. (The justification, such as it was, was that the aliens had once been led by Doiby Dickles, so their culture was largely based on 1930s UsefulNotes/NewYorkCity.) The justification for the planet Myrg resembling 1930s New York was indeed because they had been led by Doiby Dickles. However, that has nothing to do with the baseball. Apparently the aliens that were invading Myrg simply [[AliensStealCable learned the game from Earth TV]], and found it convenient as method of TrialByCombat and began to use it on their own. ''Young Justice'' was very often somewhat bizarre or slapstick and this storyline pushed it even farther than usual, prompting one character to say "[[LampshadeHanging That's it, I'm joining the [Teen] Titans]]."

* ''{{Rugrats}}'' also did it in the episode "Baseball," where Stu and Grandpa Lou take Tommy to see the Grizzlies play the Boston Bombers. Tommy gets a balloon at the game, which becomes the main focus of the episode's plot, as it keeps escaping his grasp. As in most ''Rugrats'' episodes, Tommy disappears to chase the balloon while the adults are oblivious that he's missing and continue to watch the baseball game.

... at least coming from the United States or Japan. Most other countries don't even care about this "baseball" thing. Other sports occasionally used include types of football such as soccer or American football, while the standard British or Australian equivalent would be a UsefulNotes/{{Cricket}} episode.
