Off-Season Movie Picks
Tuesday, October 25, 2005
With the amount of time I spend (waste) not only watching games but reading rumors and interviews online, the end of the season is sure to leave a spare few hours in my day. But who’s to say I want my life to be baseball-free? No thanks!

To fill the void that I’m sure you’re all anticipating as well, here are a few of my favorite baseball flicks:

1) Yankeeography Vol. 1, Babe Ruth All of the Yankeeography episodes are really well done, but the first one is my favorite. I have to admit that it has brought me to tears in the past. Yes, I’m a wimp. But I just love the way they delve into his personality and his life outside the ballpark.
2) Mr. Baseball Tom Selleck in Japan! I like how the main moral of the story is “only start to respect other cultures when you fall in love with your manager’s daughter”. Solid!
3) A League of Their Own There’s no crying in baseball.
4) The Rookie Ahh, what a feel-good movie. I like movies like this, where you can cheer for the protagonist the whole way through and not be disappointed by a twist-sad ending. There is a place for unhappy endings in movies, but this is not it.
5) Field of Dreams This one may actually be my number one favorite. I love the fact that although the premise is a fantasy, it is so well executed that I’m able to believe the story. I also love the visuals, I have a really good picture of the field in my head right now.
6) Eight Men Out A very appropriate choice for this World Series. This is, of course, the movie-version of a real-life drama/mystery, that of the 1919 White Sox team members accepting bribes to throw the series to the Reds (yes, those teams really were in the World Series. That part is real). This movie does a great job of portraying Sox owner Comisky as the bastard he was…and if you didn’t love Shoeless Joe Jackson before, you’ll find yourself rooting for him here.
7) 61* Watch this for a chance to see a STEROID-FREE slugging race.
8) For Love of The Game Kevin Costner plays an aging Detroit pitcher on the brink of being traded…stay with me here, to him that is a bad thing. The whole movie takes place over one day and one perfect game. Tip for watching: pretend it is not the Yankees that he is pitching against.
9) The Sandlot Some of the best insults ever! “You drink water from the toilet - - and you like it!”
10) Bad News Bears Just a classic. But why is the enemy team always named the Yankees?!

Tell me your favorites, or why mine are bad choices!

    Bull Durham is another notable one, but The Natural is my favorite. Sure, it turns the Malamud novel into a fairy tale, but it still maintains a dark, cryptic atmosphere, which is pretty unique as far as sports movies go. It also features some beautiful cinematography and a harrowing musical score.
