* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/LiloAndStitchTheSeries'' has Lilo and friends playing baseball against Myrtle's team, and Pleakley embarrasses her with his total lack of knowledge of the game. He believes that three strikes scores him a turkey and he digs up the field in search of "the legendary baseball diamond".

The trope name doesn't actually come from any particular example; it's just a great example of a person afflicted with this trope. ([[DontExplainTheJoke For those not in on it:]] Wayne Gretzky is basically the most famous ice hockey player ever to live, and ice hockey uses a puck, not a ball.)

* In ''Anime/DragonBallSuper'', Yamcha, Vados, and Whis are the only members of the main cast who actually know how to play baseball. This leads to a lot of hilarity during a baseball game.

** Detroit and Cleveland were credited with the 1957 and 1960 NFC championships, respectively. Detroit was the 1957 National Football ''League'' champions. There was no National Football ''Conference'' until the 1970 merger of the National and American Football Leagues. Furthermore, Cleveland did not play in the 1960 NFL Championship. Philadelphia defeated Green Bay for the Eagles' final championship to date. The Browns should have been credited with the 1964 NFL championship, their last championship and the last championship for Cleveland in any sport.
