Favorite baseball movie

SDS

The Sandlot, Bad News Bears and Rookie Of The Year.

I realize am in the minority but I liked Major League II better than the original and there is no Major League III in my book.

SDS

My favorite is either major league or field of dreams, depending on whether I wanna laugh or I'm feeling sentimental lol. Unpopular opinion: Bull Durham is one of the worst movies I've ever seen, baseball or otherwise. I don't get how it always winds up on best of lists.

Well if you played minor league ball, it might hit home a little bit more. I was playing in the Carolina League the year it came out in 1988. Played many times at that exact ballpark. They had filmed summer scenes the winter before. Notice the cold air fog when guys would breathe. I believe it was released in May 1988 and the stands were packed once the movie came out. It was like a carnival there. Lots of fun. I loved the scene when the guys needed a night off so they flooded the field the night before. When I watch Bull Durham now, its like a time capsule back to 1988.

All of you are wrong:

I also like those movies.

The Sandlot
Field of Dreams
A League of Their Own
Fever Pitch (don't hate)

Documentary for Fastball, The Battered Bastards of Baseball, Catching Hell and Baseball A Ken Burns Film are all incredible.

Ken Burns has to be the best documentary! I have never watched Fever Pitch but I’ll give it a try for sure

Great choices. I haven't watched Fever Pitch, but looked up the trailer, and that was funny. I like Field of Dreams and the Sandlot, but haven't seen the others.
