I was torn on this one...I think that Field of Dreams, The Natural and Bull Durham are three of my favourite movies of all time. I also love ML, but it isn't a great movie. The Natural was instrumental in me becoming a baseball fan when i was a kid.

Some others...
Eight Men Out
The Rookie
A Talent for The Game
Little Big League

There is a lot more I could have added. 8 men out, Pride of the Yankees, A league of their own and countless others.
Maybe someone should make a worst baseball movie poll. My vote goes to Rookie of the Year.

Its hard to pick just one. Eight Men Out and Bull Durham are my most favorite followed by The Natural and Major League. Heck, I live 30 miles away from the Field of Dreams and its not even in my top 5 favorites!

Trev you're right, the Pride of the Yankees is the correct title of that movies. Also a classic.

The Jimmy Stewart movie is The Stratton Story. Excellent movie.

How can Rookie of the Year be the worst movie? The Cubs win the World Series!! ;-D
From the official rulebook of baseball: "Baseball is a game played between two teams of nine players each." Therefore, baseball is a game played only in the National League.
