  1. Nicely done David, even if I disagree with your conclusion. Then again, I did see A League of Their Own for the only time on a sick day — one where I was conscious of being a burden on my wife, at that. Great line: “There’s no tying in baseball.”

    Probably go Field of Dreams, but it’s really close.

  3. I love both these films but Field of Dreams is probably my favorite baseball movie of all time. Even though you don’t see a WHOLE lot of actual baseball being played in the movie, I feel like it perfectly encapsulated the spirit of the game.

    For me, it’s League of Their Own. I was able to connect to the characters, and really feel for them. Both movies have a tremendous cast, but for me…League over Dreams.
