Top Twenty-Five Baseball Movies

Major League Baseball is back and I am hoping that my NY Yankees and NY Mets have good seasons this year (yes, I’m equally a Mets and Yankees fan; deal with it).  Now that the 2013 season is underway, I’ve decided to present my list of the top 25 baseball movies ever made (they are listed according to year of release).  Basically, the only requirements I have is that baseball is central to the film’s story or plot and that these feature-length films were theatrically released (that means no TV movies; sorry Billy Crystal’s terrific HBO film 61*).

  1. Great list! Glad to see Moneyball on there, it’s probably my favorite.
