5 Faves: Baseball – Comedy

image

  1. Major League
  2. Bull Durham
  3. League Of Their Own, A
  4. Sandlot, The
  5. Bad News Bears, The (2005)

I love baseball movies. They are my favorite sports film genre. I don’t know whether it’s because there’s so much history, or because so much can happen in a game that can effect the outcome so there can be lots of little twists and turns along the way that are plausible or maybe because I played 13+ years of little league ball myself. Whichever the case, there’s no denying my affinity. I’m not going to argue that Major League is a better movie than Bull Durham. It probably isn’t. I just can’t wipe the goofy grin off my face or the goosebumps off my arms whenever Ricky Vaughn steps out of the bullpen. I feel A League of Their Own is a very underrated movie. There may be no crying in baseball, but it’s hard not to get emotional while watching this movie. Jon Lovitz steals every scene he’s in. I apologize for having the Bad News Bears remake on the list. I haven’t seen the original so I can’t include it. I thought Billy Bob was perfectly cast and the movie is actually quite funny.  And of course, The Sandlot is just very nostalgic.
