Disagree, it's got comedy moments but it hits on all aspects of pro baseball.

Spring training
Guys trying to make a team
Travel
Crappy owner
Clubhouse drama
Underdog story

It's not just a cheesy comedy

I'm old and if I'm going to pick a baseball movie with kids in it I'm gong Bad News Bears. Plus, I liked Sandlot when it was a bit darker and called Stand By Me...


Just be sure to keep those damn kids off your lawn, gramps.

I like Fever Pitch even though it's a bit of a chick flick

I saw that one for the first time about two months ago and it was actually kind of good.

Major League...you can't top it.
It's a comedy, not in same with the dramas. It's funny though and is a good movie, but different category.


Horrible take

Was there anything worse than when they replaced Wesley Snipes with Omar Epps in ML2?


Yes, CGI baseballs in Major League 3

I didn't say it was cheesy. But I don't compare it to like the natural just two different types of movies. But I guess if people categorize it with baseball movies I guess it doesn't matter but to me they're very different.

I gave it honorable mention. "There's no crying in baseball" has a shltload of relevance, man.

If you've never seen this movie and you like the Astros, stay up all night until you can find it and watch it. If I had the money I'd rent a movie theater and invite you all to watch it.

Still can't believe none of y'all have seen Long Gone. I still have it on DVD but you can't get it anywhere else it doesn't stream or anything.

Because he's slow and he would have be gunned down at 2nd if the LF came up firing

It's based on a novel and written about a soccer team. For some reason hollywood decided to switch to baseball and put that db fallon in it. I disagree strongly.

Well I'll give him a bit of a break since his knees get such a beating.
