Baseball Movie Checklist

A List of Every Baseball Movie in History

Baseball movies are simply great and anyone who has ever watched Bang the Drum Slowly or The Natural know exactly what Baseball Almanac is talking about.

Listed below in chronological order is a list of every major motion picture where baseball is featured in the film or where one of the primary actors was a baseball player.

NOTE: The Year (of release) column might not always match-up to the Details column (Amazon.com year) as their year specifically relates to the release of the video.

"The one constant through all the years has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is a part of our past. It reminds us of all that once was good, and what could be again." - James Earl Jones
