John Kruk in "The Fan" got hosed.

EDIT: Also, Frank Thomas in "Married With Children".

I saw Derek Jeter in "The Shortstop" last year. Mediocre performance, in my opinion even though some critics raved.....

The fact that Chuck Connors did not make the list makes me question the veracity of the whole thing.

This.

Needs more Uecker, definitely.

His performance in the Major League series is nothing short of commendable.

Hmm, we'll get to see The Choice on the big screen next year trying to be Miguel Tejada! Weird. Better actor than hitter?

Bob Uecker got robbed of a well deserved #1. He wasn't even put on the list.

Heywood's a convicted felon, isn't he Monty? [Monty: Ah...doesn't really say it here.] Well, he should be!

I believe Frank was also in Mr. Baseball. Was he not the one that sent Tom Selleck's character to Japan?

Also, lets not forget Kevin Hickey, BP pitcher for the boys, as he was in Major League 2.

Yeah, he's in Mr. Baseball, which is a horribly underrated movie. Frank doesn't have any lines, though; he just hits dingers.
