Heading Home (1920) stars Babe Ruth as a fictional version of himself. Wikipedia: "It attempts to create a mythology surrounding the life of baseball player Babe Ruth... Ruth stars in the film, playing himself, but the details of his life are completely fictionalized." IMDb: "The "true story" of baseball great Babe Ruth; Ruth plays himself." ... "If this is the "true story" of Babe Ruth, then I am a Llama!" Watch online

Likewise, Frank "Home Run" Baker played the leading role in Home Run Baker's Double (1914). Here's an account of the 'photoplay', and it certainly sounds like a fictional story of a baseball player, his doppelganger and some crooks.

Hal Chase's role in Hal Chase's Home Run (1911) was more than a cameo :) "... in which the leading role is played by the famous First Baseman and Manager of the New York American Leage Team..."
