Bull Durham
Field of Dreams
Big League (hey -- it's FUN)
A League of Their Own
The Natural

And that's all I can think of. There are a BUNCH of sucky baseball movies out there, though.

Why do you ask, anyway?

She meant "Major League" and she's right on that and the rest.

Bull Durham wins. Just like my Angels did tonight. :)

Yes, Major League. And the thing about that movie is that we never actually *call* it by its real title.

My mom, who is known for being just a *wee* bit ditsy, made the mistake of calling it "Grand Slam" one time -- so that's what it's known as in my family, to the extent that we've forgotten its real title. :-)

And it turns out, I'm carrying on my mother's tradition proudly!

Eight Men Out

Oooo, yeah! Them, too!

I know there were some old-time baseball movies, but I've not seen 'em.

FoD was on HBO last night. it's a weird movie in my book ... it's a movie a *tim allen grunt* man *grunt* should like, but it *always* makes me tear up (specifically, at the end. when john and ray play catch)

plus, i love baseball =)
