Favorite Baseball Movie?

Postby roto-addicted » Thu Feb 10, 2005 9:21 am

I'm sure someone has brought this up before so I'm sorry for starting a topic that has already been brought up before, but I was just curious.

My personal favorite has to be Major League (1989). Honorable mentions go to The Natural (1984), The Pride of the Yankees (1943), and The Soul of the Game (1996, HBO).

The Bad News Bears is easily my favorite baseball movie, but I could also easily go with Eight Men Out or Field of Dreams.

Field of Dreams is my favorite.

I love Field of Dreams and Major League...


Does The Naked Gun qualify as a Baseball Movie? The part of the movie at the Angles game with all the announcers, and the blooper reel on the big screen, is hysterical.



But I have a candidate for WORST Baseball Movie of all time (might make an interesting discussion on its own) :

The Slugger's Wife (1985)

Michael O'Keefe (Danny Noonan from Caddyshack) and the extremely sexy Rebecca De Mornay. This one was totally lame, but I always found Rebecca De Mornay irresistable ever since Risky Business. That's probably why I watched it on HBO back in the 80s.
