12 Angry Men - It's a Good Thing the Defendant Didn't Play Baseball
I really couldn't believe it when I heard it because this is such a great movie but, during the first part of the movie each man tries to tell H. Fonda's character why the man is guilty. When it gets to Jack Albertson, who's character is an avid baseball fan,he's agitated and tries to explain why he thinks he's guilty. He gets up and states that the kid has had a tough life and that he's "5 For 0". #1, In baseball the correct term is "0 for 5"(no hits for 5 at bats..."O-fer"). #2, It doesn't make mathematic sense, because you can't divide 5 into 0. I would think since the character was supposed to know baseball he would use the correct terminology.

It was Jack Warden, not Jack "the man" Albertson who played the baseball fan in the Henry Fonda version of "12 Angry Men."

He might in one of the remakes or the original plays. Lots of people have played Mr. Baseball including Tony Danza (he's the best Mr. Baseball in my opinion).
