A League of Their Own
The Bad News Bears
Bang The Drum Slowly

I don't know how you make this list and leave these three off.

Bull Durham is the best baseball movie of all time. ;-D

Bull Durham is overrated imo. I like the rest mentioned. I'd also add Eight Men Out on my list.

I didn't really like the Babe and Angels in the OF is a little too corny for my tastes.
Field of Dreams is my favorite non-comedy. Major League is my favorite comedy.
I like the Natural but the ending in the book is much, much better.

Pride of the Yankees owns all of those movies.

I also enjoyed:
Cobb (very good movie)
The Natural
For Love of the game
8 Men out
Field of Dreams
Bull Durham
Ken Burn's Baseball


Don't like:
Bad News Bears
Rookie of the Year
Angles in the Outfield
Major League (or its sequels)
The Babe (a crappy version of Cobb)
