The 1988 drama gave us the true story of what happened in the 1919 "Black Sox" scandal (referenced in Field of Dreams), in which eight members of the team conspired to throw the World Series for a payoff. It's a movie that makes you feel sympathy for the men, and it starred an impressive roster of actors, including Charlie Sheen, John Cusack, and D.B. Sweeney as "Shoeless" Joe Jackson (you know Sweeney; he's Doug in The Cutting Edge).
Eight Men Out was the dramatic baseball movie.
