Baseball Movies

 While watching the Sandlot for probably the 100th time, I decided to see if was ranked on a list of best 

baseball movies.  I've used Baseball Almanac as my main reference for the rest of this post.

The first Baseball Movie was titled "the Ball Game" and came out in 1898 and was made by

Space Jam and Ferris Bueller.  Everyone has their favorite baseball movie.  On Baseball Almanac,

my favorite The Sandlot, is ranked #9.
