Play Ball!

As I mentioned in my Monday post, I’ve decided to break down my favorite baseball movies, combining two of my great loves. I wasn’t sure how big or small the list would be, but after doing a careful search (read: googling “baseball movies”), I figured out that I have 18 baseball movies in my arsenal, so this list will be a Letterman-esque Top 10. I have to say, I’m constantly amazed (and a little depressed) at the number of films/television shows I’ve managed to see on any given subject. Look for my Top 10 Scenes of Characters Using a Waffle Iron, coming soon to a computer near you.

Anywho, in the style of my Top 20 Films of 2009 list, here’s a total catalogue of all of the baseball movies that I’ve seen, as far as I can tell (including made-for-TV movies and docs). I’ll bring you #6-10 tomorrow and #1-5 on Friday. Cool? Feel free to rank the movies (and tell me what I’ve missed) in the comments below.
