25 best baseball movies? Let the debate begin ... [View all]

https://www.mlb.com/news/best-baseball-movies-of-all-time-c301609142

The top ten (according to the link):

1. Bull Durham (1988)
2. A League of Their Own (1992)
3. The Pride of the Yankees (1942)
4. Field of Dreams (1989)
5. Eight Men Out (1988)
6. Moneyball (2011)
7. The Natural (1984)
8. The Sandlot (1993)
9. Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
10. Major League (1989)

--------------------------------------

Despite it's plot holes, I like Bull Durham a lot, but I don't think there's ever been a better love letter written for baseball than Field of Dreams. I'm very surprised to see 42 so far down on the list -- should be in the top ten. Moneyball skewed the real facts behind the Athletic's success and gets knocked down on my list.
