3rd Base: Ed the monkey "Ed" (1996) Chimpanzees are up to eight times stronger than the average human. So, it should come as no surprise that Ed can fling a baseball hard enough to ignite a leather glove. You think Carlos Beltran has a good arm? This hominid third baseman might prompt the team to invest in reinforced mitts and maybe even Kevlar vests, just for good measure. Monkeys are the comedic equivalent of a football in the groin --hence why Matt LeBlanc is in this movie -- but we don't need Ed (or whoever is in that odd monkey suit) to be funny. We just need him to turn into face-ripper monkey anytime someone brushes him off the plate.
