IMDB recently released their list of the top 10 baseball movies ever. While I personally think ranking the top 10 baseball movies of all time is a daunting task, considering how many amazing films have been created, they did a pretty good job.
Field of Dreams deserves to be ranked in the top spot, as they had it. The Natural and Bull Durham were also solid picks for their Top 10. On a personal note, while I enjoyed the film, I take issue with the inclusion of Fever Pitch (but that could just be the fact that the film features my American League rival!).
More than that, though, I feel that they missed a few incredible films that not only includes some inspiring individuals and characters but also that portray baseball as the special sport that it is. Here are my personal top 10 baseball movies:
1. Field of Dreams
2. Bull Durham
3. The Sandlot
4. Major League
5. The Natural
6. A League of Their Own
7. The Rookie
9. Eight Men Out
It pains me that I didn’t have enough slots to include some all-time greats such as For the Love of the Game, Bad News Bears, Little Big League and countless others. There are just so many fantastic baseball movies.
