Top 10 Baseball Movies Worth an Instant Replay

Major League Baseball announced that they will begin using instant replay in games starting Thursday. In honor of this historic shift in the way baseball will be called – we are taking a look at the Top 10 Baseball Movies of All Time – all worthy of another look.

So here they are – the Top 10 Baseball Movies of All Time:

1. Bad News Bears: Argue if you want – but I’ll just send Tanner over to whip your ass.

2. Bull Durham: “You just got lesson number one: don’t think; it can only hurt the ball club.”

3. Field of Dreams: “I’m going to beat you with a crowbar until you leave.”

4. The Sandlot: “You’re killing me Smalls!”

5. The Natural: Come on – we all know the home run scene.

6. Major League: “Is very bad to steal Jobu’s rum. Is very bad. ”

7. Eight Men Out: Just an all around good baseball flick.

8. Pride of the Yankees: Simply a classic.

9. Little Big League: “Takes me 3 hours to paint a house – takes you 5. How long to do it together?” “What color paint?”

10. 61*: A really good movie – just skip the last few minutes when Mark McGwire intrudes.

Honorable Mentions:

Summer Catch: For obvious reasons.

Rookie of the Year: “I think those tendons have healed – a little, a little tight.”

For Love of the Game: We just couldn’t have Costner in the Top 10 three times.

The Rookie: Best use of a roadside radar sign in a movie award.

    I love your list!! Glad to see a true classic included (Pride of the Yankess). A less heralded classic I would recommend checking out…The Monty Stratton Story starring Jimmy Stewart.

    Almost a perfect 10!

    How about Mr. Baseball ?

    Great list…as an Indians fan, I think Major League 2 should be on the list (or at least honorable mention). And Jessica Biel single-handedly saved Summer Catch. Also, thankfully you didn’t meantion “Ed” anywhere in this list.

    I wouldn’t put it in the Top 10, but “Cobb” certainly deserves a mention. I agree with “Mr. Baseball”, too.

    I always liked Bad news Bears in Breaking Training more than the original. Playing in the Astro Dome. The Road trip.

    Excellent, I would just swap “Little Big League” and “Rookie of the Year.”

    What about Fear Strikes Out? I heard the original title was supposed to be Lunacy Homers.

    for me Field of Dreams and Bull Durham top the list

    Great list, only I would’ve put Mr. Baseball somewhere on there, as a few people have mentioned.
