Eight Men Out: Every baseball fan knows the story of “Shoeless” Joe Jackson and the Black Sox team that threw the World Series. This movie is a great depiction of that dark time in Major League Baseball.
While this is a great movie, it’s not one of the top five of all-time; maybe it is just because this happened way back then, but Eight Men Out does not make the cut
Bad News Bears: Again, this movie doesn't make the cut due to the generational gap, but while not in the top five it is still a quality movie.
To clarify, we are talking about the original Bad News Bears–not the Bad News Bears Breaking Training, or the Bad News Bears go to Japan, or the new Bad News Bears starting Billy Bob Thornton. Though any movie that spawn that many knock-offs must be a good one, it’s just not good enough.
A League of Their Own: A look back at the All American League, a time where women ruled the world of baseball just misses the cut.
A great movie in its own right, it brought us the Quote "There's no crying in baseball!," but sadly that line is also its downfall, as the line has out-shown the movie and many people can quote the line without knowing the movie.
