What's Buzzworthy: Baseball Movies

What's Buzzworthy: Baseball Movies

In honor of the beginning of baseball season, I asked you guys to bookmark your favorite baseball movies for last weekend's Buzzworthy challenge. America's favorite pastime has inspired countless films, and you guys did an excellent job finding the diamonds in the rough. (Although I am apparently the only one who likes Rookie of the Year, but that's ok.) Here are my favorite picks from BuzzSugar readers.

Bull Durham, bookmarked by Sweet Tea, who calls this minor-league baseball movie "guy and gal friendly. Great for date night at home."

A League of Their Own, bookmarked by several users, including WhiplashGirlChild, who says: "I hate about 90 percent of all sports movies, but there are a few baseball movies that I love. This one is my favorite sports movie ever. I'm such a GIRL."

Cobb, bookmarked by Yiddidea, who calls it a "non-reverential Hollywood biopic about one of baseball's greatest players."

To see three other great baseball movies,

The Natural, bookmarked by Linda McP, giving us this eloquent description: "Robert Redford stars in this fable about an unknown player who, after fashioning his bat from a tree, fulfills his dreams on the field."

Field of Dreams, bookmarked by Wynter and Missyosigirl, who claims "Field of Dreams is not only about baseball. It's also about second chances, and fathers and sons."

Fever Pitch, bookmarked by Missyosigirl, who explains: "The romance part clicks because Jimmy Fallon and Drew Barrymore have amazing chemistry together — I'd like to see them in a follow up film."

Still not sure how to create a Buzzworthy bookmark? Don't worry: TeamSugar makes it easy to bookmark and capture anything on the Web that you consider "Buzzworthy." If you already have a "That's Fab" button on your browser's tool bar, you can use that to bookmark your Buzzworthy items. If you don't have the TeamSugar bookmarking button on your toolbar, you can learn how to get it by watching this video.

Also, when did Madonna un-learn how to act? She was actually pretty good in League of Their Own, and I love her riffs with Rosie, who I think also un-learned how to act somewhere along the way.

Bang the Drum Slowly with DeNiro and M. Moriarty is one of my favorites. The book was, of course, better.

Ditto your pics, ALSW. Those are the to movies that I couldn't believe weren't on this list! And btw, I'm watching League of Their Own right now, and it's making me cry, just like it does every single time I watch it. It might just be my favorite Tom Hanks movie. Love it.

How does Fever Pitch make it on the same page as Field of Dreams??? I love Drew (and I don't hate Jimmy), but how on earth? Booyaka!

field of dreams is my boyfriend's favorite movie, and I love a League of their Own. I even saw the house where they filmed the scenes where the girls lived!

If you liked the movie version of Field of Dreams, try the book. I liked it even more, it went much more indepth about the Dr, the author and the characters in general. These are all good movies...I liked *61 as well.

Thanks for the mention, Buzz. The Natural is one of those feel good movies, especially if you're a Robert Redford fan like me!

Personally, I really enjoyed the movie 61. But then, I'm a baseball geek. Like got engaged at Wrigley Field in Chicago baseball geek. =] Major League is another great, funny baseball movie.
