Here is one that hasn't been posted yet. "Damn Yankees" Musical where a Senators fan sells his soul to the devil to become a star ballplayer and beat the Yankees. Classic in general, but especially because of Gwen Verdon as Lola, back when you had to work at being sexy. (1958)

[quote="BronXBombers51"]Major League, The Natural, The Sandlot and 61* ..... ;-D ;-D ;-D

For The Love of the Game.... :-/

Fever Pitch? :-t :-t :-P[/quot

Now, if it revolved around the Yankees, u would've loved it?

My favorites were Bad News Bears (Thornton was hilarious), Major League, Fever Pitch, Rookie of the Year, and there will probably be more filmed in the near future, I would imagine.

Actually, no, the fact that it was about the Red Sox had little to do with my disliking the movie.

It started off alright. There were some funny parts in it. The ending was garbage though. It ended so abruptly. I know that the directors had to change the ending because the Sox wound up winning, but I wasn't a fan of it.

By Far the Natural is my favorite, Everytime Wilford Brimley says " Youre better than anyone I ever had, and your the best ***-Damn hitter I ever saw........suit up!" I get chills! Every Time! Field of Dreams is a distant second, and yes I get weepy at the end with "Wanna have a catch". 8 men out and 61* are also great movies!

Is "Clear the Mechanism" a real term....you'd think he'd use the mechanism to clear his environment :-?

Very few baseball scenes in it, but I loved Cobb. Tommy Lee Jones is awesome.

And Bull Durham is the best of all time.

This is one of the first things I've agreed with you on here. This movie is hilarious. I watched it again for the 2nd time last night in 5-6 years, and it reminded me again why I thought it was so great the first time.

alright. this is obscure, but i saw it as a friend of mine has diabetes and they had a fundraising showing of it.

but... "This Old Cub" which is the Ron Santos story. It's a documentary and I have to say, very, very well done. And impossible not to love Santos after viewing it. Check it out (especially if you root for the boys from Wrigley).
