Baseball Players Perfectly Recreate Iconic 'Dirty Dancing' Scene

A group of baseball players took a timeout during the middle of a game to recreate the iconic scene from “Dirty Dancing.”

Everyone has a favorite movie they could watch and probably have watched hundreds of times without ever getting tired of it. It’s also likely that we could easily recite nearly every single line of dialogue from that beloved film. For whatever reason, we connected with those scenes, characters and the film’s story, and now it’s forever etched in our brains.

For many people, “Dirty Dancing” is one film they could watch repeatedly. But even if you haven’t watched the 1987 film starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey, you’re likely familiar with it or at least know of one scene from the flick. In the movie’s most memorable scene, Johnny and Baby put on a dance performance as “Time of My Life” plays. But the most iconic part of their routine involves Baby running and jumping into the air as Johnny catches her and spins her around. 

The Savannah Bananas is a team that plays a different kind of baseball. Their game is infused with fun, silliness and even a dance routine. In a clip posted on Facebook, the guys stop in the middle of a game and recreate that scene from “Dirty Dancing,” jump, catch, spin and all.

In the short, 2-minute clip, the song begins playing as two of the players lip-sync those timeless lyrics. Several of the players even start strutting their stuff right on the diamond, much to the delight of the fans in the stands.

The fans love the synchronized dance number from the group of players. They shout and respond with a thunderous round of applause. 

Who doesn’t want a little bit of fun and silliness with their baseball every now and then? 

Psalm 149:3 “Let them give praise to his name in the dance: let them make melody to him with instruments of brass and corded instruments of music.”
