The boys (and girls) of summer are at the ball parks. How about a baseball movie on a hot summer night? Here are some of the best.
This story of the Iowa corn farmer who hears voices “If you build it, he will come”,
interprets them as a command to build a baseball diamond in his fields, and does, is an all-time favorite. This fantasy-drama film is a wonderful adaptation of the novel Shoeless Joe
by W. P. Kinsella.
With the 40th anniversary of Title IX upon us, take a look at this fictionalized account of the story of two sisters who join the first female professional baseball league and struggle to help it succeed amidst their own growing rivalry.
Settle in for the story of a middle-aged batter named Roy
Hobbs who appears out of nowhere to take a losing 1930s baseball team to the top of the league in this magical sports fantasy. This is a wonderful adaptation of the novel of the same name by Bernard Malamud.
This title is a tight blend of comedy, drama and romance and follows the intertwining of three lives brought together by the great American pastime. Some list this as the number one baseball movie of all time.
