1 – The Sandlot – While this 1993 film doesn’t involve any real players, or real teams, it doesn’t even involve any levels of structured baseball, whether it be little league, high school, college or pro’s, it does have the purest of love shown through for the game. This epic story of a group of young boys finding themselves and friendships in America’s favorite pastime allows the viewer to relive moments of their own youth. It is nearly unthinkable to watch “The Sandlot” without reminiscing back to your youth and losing all track of reality while enjoying what you are watching, and isn’t that the true point of not only watching a movie but also baseball? What also makes this movie great is that you don’t even have to be a baseball purist to love it, but rather someone who enjoys watching a wholesome story with plenty of laughter and an ending no one see’s coming.
