My Top Ten Favorite Baseball Movies
My top ten baseball movies consist of five movies on the list. That sounds pretty weird. There have been many movies with a baseball theme that I have liked, but there are only five I have loved. I will get to them soon.
"Bang The Drum Slowly" with Robert DeNiro, "Cobb" with Tommy Lee Jones, "Fear Strikes Out," "Eight Men Out," "A League of Their Own," "Major League," and "Rookie of the Year."
He is so delighted when his father says "sure." I melt whenever I see this scene.
He is fulfilling a dream. There are a couple of scenes in the movie that lead to a most uplifting moment. While playing in the minor leagues in the Tampa Bay organization Dennis Quaid (Playing pitcher Jim Morris) thinks he may have made a mistake by leaving his family to pursue a dumb dream. He is in anguish.
He is not making any money pitching in the minors while his family is suffering at home with very little money coming into the house. Finally, after vacillating between playing baseball and going back to his wife to make a constant living he sees one of his teammates and asks him. "Do you know what we are going to do today?" His teammate looks puzzled. Dennis responds to his own question.
"We are going to play baseball today." With a big grin on his face Dennis captures the joy of playing baseball. I loved it.
Robert Redford comes out of the hospital to play in the most important game of the year. As corny as this movie was I loved the scene at the end of the movie when he hits the ball into the lights and a shower of sparkling flashes illuminate the screen. I can still hear the music from that part of the movie, as he circles the bases. I get chills whenever I see this part of the film.
This is also one of my wife's favorites as well film.
They embrace and he tells her its a little bump or bruise.
Long, lasting and lovable.
Highlights on film. Dead ball era. Modern day.
Pitchers, hitters. This movie had it all. The pictures were spectacular. There were so many stories that were told. I was amazed by Ken Burns' commitment to get this movie done. That is what moved me the most.
