It's Bull Durham for me pretty easily. My Top 5 is complete with all the usual suspects. But Bull Durham is a special movie.

I always consider Sandlot more of a coming-of-age movie, like Stand By Me and not a pure baseball flick.

This is worth watching for the unintentional comedy. It's just so bad.

Out of all the baseball movies I've seen, I liked Bull Durham the most.

I loved it as a kid. I'd never watch it again, mostly because I just don't want to know how bad it actually was, but I do remember enjoying it. I remember greatly enjoying both Sandlot and Angels in the Outfield when I was younger too. But Sandlot's probably the only one I could stomach watching again.

(There was another baseball movie I vaguely remember liking when I was younger. It was about some young boy who injured his arm and suddenly could throw close to 100 MPH. He became a pitcher...I don't remember the name of that one though).

Baseball movies I've enjoyed more recently were The Natural, Bull Durham, and Field of Dreams.

They were talking about best baseball movies of all time on MLB Network and one of the guys actually mentioned Ed. :-D

I like Bull Durham a lot, but nothing comes close to Field of Dreams and 61* in my opinion.
