In honor of pitchers and catchers reporting yesterday, I feel like putting on a baseball film festival in my home this weekend.  I’m trying to figure out which films to screen on Saturday and Sunday, and I’ve come up with a partial list:

  • Stealing Home
  • It Happens Every Spring
  • The quintessential baseball film.

  • For Love of the Game
  • Mr. 3000
  • Bull Durham
  • 61*
  • The Sandlot
  • Mr. Destiny
  • Summer Catch
  • Mr. Baseball
  • The Natural
  • Major League
  • Bang the Drum Slowly
  • A League of Their Own
  • The Pride of the Yankees
  • Field of Dreams
  • Eight Men Out
  • The Scout

I, of course, left some movies off the list.  Movies like Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch and Angels in the Outfield were cut because either I thought they were ridiculous or I just wasn’t that big of a fan of those movies enough to want to watch it again.  And Fever Pitch is left off due to my lifelong hate of all things having to do with Boston-based teams.  Some of these may not even make it to the party due to time constraints, but I wanted to make sure that my semi-annual homage to baseball movies is complete with the must-see films like The Natural, Bull Durham, and Major League.

What movies did I leave off?
