Top Baseball Movie Named

MLB.com did a 64 movie bracket to determine the greatest movie involving baseball.

The top four movies were:

  1. Field of Dreams
  2. Major League
  3. The Natural
  4. Bull Durham

I think the fans got it right, though Bull Durham influenced Major League in a few ways (ie. voodoo slugger, washed-up catcher, other numerous cliches). Some try to make the case that Field of Dreams is not a true baseball movie, since the main idea is the father-son relationship at the end, but if you’re a film snob, you came to the wrong place. Try this Ebert. Any movie featuring Archibald “Moonlight” Graham is a baseball movie, through and through. Definitely the best movie with a baseball backdrop, one main reason being this monologue that still delivers shivers up my spine…

    Oh my god this movie is amazing. I need to watch it sometime between now and opening day too. I must find time for that.

    I’ll try to work on another entry today, but I have been really busy. Sorry guys.
