You both need to see the Natural and Bull Durham. Both great flicks and should definitely be on the list. Both movies were baseball movies for adults and very entertaining flicks. The Sandlot was a good #1 choice though.
Thanks for the comment! The Sandlot is just all around great. Whenever I hear the song “This magic moment” I think of the scene where he finally kisses the lifeguard at the pool.
Bull Durham is a must. Cannot believe you have a baseball movie list, and have not seen it! You’re missing out.
Overall I thought that your list was just…ok.
I get the quoteable aspects of the Rookie however it pales in comparison to either Bull Durham OR The Natural.
To each their own BUT the placement of the Rookie into the top 5 is a bit of a slap in the face to baseball movies everywhere.
You guys need to see Bull Durham, The Natural, and 8 Men Out.
Bull Durham…. “Your shower shoes have fungus on them. You’ll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, you’ll be classy. If you win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press’ll think you’re colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it means you are a slob.”
“Well, I believe in the soul, the cock, the pussy, the small of a woman’s back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days”
Top baseball movie easy
I went away from this website and had to come back and say not having Bull Durham on your list insults your credibility as movie reviewers, sports fans, and being a man. Please go watch Bull Durham, and adjust accordingly, “the rose goes in the front big man”
This list couldnt hit water if it fell out of a boat….
We watched Bull Durham last night, actually. We’ll be doing a review of it this week. Come back to check it out!
Yeah Rookie of the year. No.
Eight Men Out
I really can’t rank them.
8 men out is on Netflix Instant Stream, so we’ll have to check that out, too. Thanks for all of the comments!
