There are many great baseball movies...61*, Bull Durham, Babe, 8 Men Out, Summer Catch, Major League (only the original), Rookie of the Year, the Rookie, Little Big League, Bad News Bears (once again original only), Fields of Dreams, Angels in the Outfield, For Love of the Game, and Debbie Does Dallas (ok, so that's porn). Anyway, you get the point...and I actually own almost everyone of those movies. If it's a movie about baseball, I'm down with it! Although all those movies have their own unique intrigue and entertainment value they simple do not measure up to the best. In my professional-amateur opinion no baseball movie comes close to the best of all-time...the Sandlot! The movie isn't only a great baseball movie, it's a damn good movie period!
"You're killing me Smalls, you're killing me!"
"I don't know who signed it...some Baby Ruth or something."
"Once that ball goes over that fence...it's gone FOR-EV-ER! FOREVER!"
"What the hell is he doing?"
