I love Bull Durham, but Major League wins if I have to vote.

Bang the Drum Slowly

Not only is this my favorite baseball movie ever, it is one of my favorite period....Diniro and Morriarty were awesome..there is a local movie store that usually has the unfindable. I am prompted to go see if this is available for a quite evening at home soon...

"Ball Four "might have made a good movie I think.....
OK boys who will be the hero today ????

Definitely one of the great ones!

Stealing Home is another good one not in the poll, but maybe there's not quite enough baseball in it.

Others that should have been mentioned?

The Sandlot.
Damn Yankees.

Did you know Dave Magadan was in Little Big League?

Sandlot. No question. My favorite movie of all time. :thumbup:

I'm all about Bull Durham, but A League of Their Own was a pretty damned good movie too...

You're in for a treat if you haven't seen it.
