The Texas Rangers 2017 season is nigh so what better time to discuss the top-five baseball movies of all time?
The Texas Rangers new season begins tomorrow and Rangers Nation is more excited than ever for some meaningful baseball. But with a touch of sand still left in the hourglass, lighthearted debate is controlling all of us at SportDFW.
Today’s topic: The Top-5 baseball movies of all time.
Obviously, everyone is going to have their own personal favorites. That became glaringly apparent as I started tabulating our respective lists. Some movies made everyone’s list while others were uniquely appreciated by only one of us.
Eight Men Out – One of the most infamous stories in all of sports told for everyone to see. The Chicago Blacksox and the throwing of games still resonates today. The sad story of Shoeless Joe Jackson, one of the best baseball players in history and how his reputation would forever be damaged. Amazing.
Field of Dreams – A story of the love of baseball and the impact it has on a family. Just a classic movie with a throwback to a lot of past players. You can’t help but watch this movie when it is on, even if it is for the classic line, “If you build it, they will come.”
Now, on to the list.
