I liked Tim Robbins as the young pitcher with a huge head in Bull Durham. I think the character's name was Nook. I believe Robert Wuhl who has been in a ton of movies was also in this baseball flick. He played one of the coaches on the Durham Bulls. Great thread by the way.
:cool:

I love Liotta as Joe Jackson, and the all powerful Pedro Guerrero as one of the stars struck out in Rookie of the Year. They showed him in the previews everytime like it was going to bring more people to the movie.

LOL - Liotta as Joe... I think D.B. Sweeney was a better Joe Jackson - from Eight Men Out.

Liotta had never swung a bat prior to that movie. Because of that, he had to hit right handed in the film...

All I have to say is God bless Roy Hobbs. "And then when I walked down the street people would've looked and they would've said there goes Roy Hobbs, the best there ever was in this game."

"Haywood leads the league in all offensive categories, including nose hair."
Seriously,everyone from Major league qualifies. What about Roger Dorn, and Harris? and hows come no one has mentioned Tom "sniper" Berenger as Jake Taylor? he's up there on my list.

Robert Redford as Roy Hobbs
Joe Don Baker as "Whammer" Wambold was the best on-screen Ruth ever, and
he was only a Ruth-like fictional character.
Michael Rooker as Chick Gandil was appropriately slimy.
Tom Berenger in Major League
Louis Gossett as Satchel Paige in the TV movie "Don't Look Back"
If I think of any more, I'll edit them in.

Benny "The Jet" Rodriguez in The Sandlot

Hilarious, I was going to say 'Jose Valentin as the adult Benny The Jet Rodriquez in The Sandlot"

What about Walter Matthau in Bad News Bears? He threw a couple of pitches. Or Kelly Leak on the motorcycle.... holy crap... this is him now...

"If I had only gotten to be a doctor for five minutes, now that would've been
a tragedy."

I love that line, and the way that Burt Lancaster delivered it.

I forgot about, and nobody else has mentioned Dennis Quaid as Jimmy Morris in The Rookie. All in all, a pretty good flik I thought.

The actor who portrayed Benny "The Jet" Rodríguez" is Mike Vitar. It was Mike's older brother Pablo who portrayed adult Benny in the Dodgers scene. But Pablo Vitar sure looked like a dead ringer for Manos.

Both religious versions of Pedro Cerrano (especially when he introduces Jobu to Buddha...that scene kills me).

Jake Taylor (I couldn't tell you how many times I've said, "Uh-oh...I don't think this one's got the distance." when somebody pops one up to the catcher).

Hamilton Porter and "Squints" from Sandlot. (GREAT movie)

Joe Jackson, via Ray Liotta.

Too bad Joe Jackson was a lefty and Liotta batted right handed.
D.B. Sweeney was a better Jackson.
