America’s National Pastime has been the subject of a lot of films, both good and bad. From comedies to dramas, baseball covers the gamut of genres and has seen Hollywood’s greatest talents grace the big screen while playing the game. While some baseball movies whiffed on their presentation, these 10 films were absolute grand slams and are must-watch for any fan of the game.
Field of Dreams
“If you build it, he will come.” The wods that only Ray Kinsella can hear haunt him throughout this modern classic. It’s a film of relationships and redemption, and Kevin Costner plays Kinsella perfectly, as a man obsessed by the words yet vulnerable enough to realize what they truly mean. Featuring stellar performances by James Earl Jones and Ray Liotta, Field of Dreams is unlike any other baseball movie and is arguably the greatest of them all.
