I thought this could be fun. After an introduction to our 16 movies, we'll begin an emlimination-style tournament.
I realize that there are more than 16 baseball movies. I purposely left out potential middle weights like Cobb or The Babe in order to get a decent cross-section of genres. Oh, yes, my friends, there are genres of baseball movies. Additionally, I grouped 16 movies into groups of four. Rejected groups: Disney, Old Classics and Yankees. Probably others that I've forgotten. Anyway, here are your finalists...
1-Field of Dreams
4-For the Love of the Game
1-Bad News Bears (Walter Matthau's version)
4-Angels In the Outfield
3-Little Big League
4-A League of Their Own
3-Eight Men Out
We'll take one-on-one votes until we get a winner from each category. From there, New Classics will take on Drama, while Kids take on Comedy. First vote tomorrow morning!
