I'm not going to do the whole drill here, but I want to talk about The Sandlot. It's my No. 2 baseball movie behind Field of Dreams. I think Sandlot is a underrated baseball movie, even though it was really for kids. Wouldn't it be awesome to have an adult "Benjamin Franklin Rodríguez" playing for the White Sox? That character fits the profile of the kind of leader our team has needed for years!

My favorite cinematic baseball scene is John Candy's Comiskey Park date with Ally Sheedy in "Only the Lonely." I feel guilty though, because it is a celebration of the old park without really being about baseball. That's a Wrigley concept. I should prefer the closing scene of "Pastime," which indeed is truly awesome.

I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the memorable scene in a new Comiskey ladies room in "My Best Friend's Wedding." Not really. But I am surprised that no one has mentioned the Piersall-goes-nuts scene in "Fear Strikes Out."

Let me add, because I forgot to put it in my first post on the subject, that the worst baseball movie ever made was the same "Babe Ruth Story" which gave us the worst portrayal ever of a ball player, William Bendix.

Case in point: We all know how Ruth's personal habits (i.e. drinking and womanizing) put him in Miller Huggins' doghouse and how he was eventually suspended until he apologized to Huggins and his teammates for his behavior. Well, in this movie, the Ruth has the best of intentions of never being late, but the straw that breaks the camels back is that little Jimmy (or whatever his name is) has a dog who is ill. Ruth takes the dog to a hospital where an MD treats him. This makes Babe late for the ball game. But in one of those wonderful Hollywood concidences, when Babe becomes ill with a disease that is not specified, probably because Ruth was still alive during the filming, and because the word "cancer" was taboo at the time anyway, he is approached to try a serum developed by a young doctor. The young doctor, of course, was the kid with the dog.

If that's not enough for you, how about Babe going into a bar and ordering milk?

That's how bad this movie was.

Ok This is hard. So here are my top baseball movies

Major League 1 & 2 (So funny)
Bad News Bears first two (I loved these)
League of their Own (Classic)
The Natural (Classic)
Field of Dreams
Little Big League (This was my dream when I was younger)

I know I am leaving off Pride of the Yankees and Eight Men Out and other classic movies but I have never seen them. (I know its sad)

My favorite scene in a baseball movie is in Field of Dreams, when
Kevin Costner and Burt Lancaster are talking in an office and
Costner tells him about how it would kill many men to come so
close as to be a major leaguer for 5 minutes and not realize their
dream. "They would consider it a tragedy." He says. Lancaster
looks at him and says, in a brilliantly understated moment "If I
had only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes; now that would
have been a tragedy." Great line, great moment.

One baseball movie that I don't see mentioned in this thread is
the 1979 remake of "The Kid From Left Field" with Gary Coleman
and Robert Guillaume. Anybody recall that one? Coleman is the
son of a former major leaguer (Guillaume) and works as a bat-
boy for the San Diego Padres. He gives the players tips and
strategy that he gets from his father. He is so brilliant that he
replaces Tab Hunter as the manager (which would make him the
youngest manager in history and the first black manager in NL
history) and leads them to the NL pennant. They wind up in the
World Series against the AL champion Chicago White Sox.

The Padres win the first three games before Coleman is taken to
a foster home and replaced as manager. (Presumably his foster
parents didn't like the idea of him being a major league mana-
ger.) The Sox win the next three before Guilliame is hired to manage the Padres for Game 7. Well, to cut to the chase, it is
the bottom of the ninth and the Sox are up by two and one out
away from completing the most amazing comeback in World
Series history. Guillaume, who has been promised the manager's
job for the next season if he delivers a victory, sends Gary Collins
up to pinch hit. Collins takes two strikes and then, in glorious
slow motion, cracks the game-winning home run and the Padres
celebrate the victory and everyone is happy. Except the White
Sox, that is.

Incidentally, the Sox in Game 7 wear uniforms that look very
similar to the black-top Sunday outfits that they wear now.
The movie was a TV job produced by Gary Coleman as a star
vehicle for himself. It is all very cheesy and bad, but it's worth
it to see the White Sox in the World Series.

"Pastime" is another great baseball movie. It features a guy
(actor name escapes me) named Roy Dean Bream, a career
minor leaguer who yaps on about his brief stint with the Cubs
and the grand slam he gave up to Stan Musial. He is cut from
the minor league team that he was on, sits in a car and cries before going out to a mound and, with dramatic, heart-tugging music in the background, pitches himself to death. Literally.

To me one of the least convincing cinematic ballplayers was Jace
Alexander as Dickie Kerr in "Eight Men Out." He played him as a
fresh-faced, wide-eyed, aw, shucks innocent when Kerr was the
total opposite (or so I read.) And Bill Irwin as Eddie Collins in the
same movie. He had movie star looks, the real Collins was homely enough to bust mirrors.

One of the best, on the other hand, was Joe Don Baker as the
psuedo-Babe Ruth character in "The Natural." He was more like
Babe Ruth than John Goodman, certainly. (I never saw the Ben-
dix version.) If "The Babe" had been made at around the same
time as "The Natural" (early '80's) Baker in my mind would have
been the perfect actor to play Ruth.

Wow. Great thread, guys. It has brought back a lot of great (movie) baseball memories. Special credit to hempsox and his "Thesis" of baseball movies---great stuff.

I've lost too many brain cells to rattle off something like that, so I'll just mention my favorite movie (which I haven't seen mentioned yet.)

"Long Gone" starring William Petersen (currently of CSI fame.) Petersen stars as "Stud" Cantrell-manager of the Tampico Stogies minor league team. Virginia Madsen also appears (back when she was young, hot and naked.)

I'd really suggest you find this movie and check it out.

Did everyone forget about new Comiskeys acting job of playing Yankee Stadium? I forgot exactly what movie it was but i think it may have been more than one. Possibly a movie like rookie of the year or lttle big league but then again those movies were listed pretty low on everyones list so maybe the stadium didnt do that well at the acting thing.

Yeah, I'm on three hours sleep, so I'll only say this.

1) One of my personal favorite movies is Little Big League which I have unfortunatly seen over 10 times. It not only contains a Sox sweep of the Twins, but two of the best baseball scenes.

2) The first is the final scene where Lou, the first basemen for the Twins hits what seems to be a sure homer off of Randy Johnson (played by himself) in the bottom of the 14th to lift the Twins to a playoff birth. Unfortunatly Ken Griffey leaps over the wall to make a great catch and send the Twins packing. Great suspense.

3) the other scene is where Billy stops having fun in with the game until he comes along a game a stickball under the El tracks and joins it under the false name "Bond - Jim Bond". It shows the pure joy of streetball and is done to John Fogarty's "Centerfield", a great song.

4) Finally, the best performence by a ballpark is easily Tiger Stadium as yankee stadium in 1961 in the film 61*.

How about that movie with Keanu Reeves, Hardball I think it was called. He was coaching an innercity little league team in Chicago and you could see the Sears Tower in dead center of their baseball field. Yet when Reeves took the kids to see Shammy at Wrigley it wasn't Wrigley at all. It was Tiger Stadium. How can they pass off crap like that?

Good God....

I can't believe that nobody even mentioned Kevin Costner in "For Love of the Game". I've probably watched that about 25 times already....and still get a little choked up at the end. Great movie! Thought he did a pretty good job with the mechanics...I didn't like who they had for his catcher though...seemed like kind of a doof and not too realistic.

Actually, it was supposed to pass as Comiskey. The game he took the kids to was a Sox vs. Cubs game. Earlier in the day, before Reeves character gets the idea to take the kids to the game, he's got the radio on and the guy is talking about how rookie Jon Garland is going to take the mound for the Sox against their crosstown rivals later that day at Comiskey Park.

That was one of the worst scenes in any baseball movie. When they got to the park, which was supposed to be Comiskey, you could see the Tigers' "D" logo on the seats. Then they show Sammy Sosa doing his routine of tapping his chest and flashing peace signs at the kids. It made me want to vomit.

Thanks for the correction Farmer. Either way it was poorly done. It didn't even look like Sosa was there, that he was imposed on a background.

The Cell did make an appearance as itself in "My Best Friends Wedding" with Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz. There were some very nice backgound scenes and some shots from a skybox.

That was John C Rilley. I think a law was passed about a year or so ago that says you can't make a movie without him. (he has a part in 3 of the 5 films up for Oscar this year). .
