Baseball is back! As Major League Baseball starts its next season, it is a fantastic time to look back as some of Hollywood's best offerings that center their drama around the diamond.
Movie studios have long gone to bat for the baseball movie, but not every one truly hits it out of the park.
Baseball movies can come in all forms: They can be true stories (like the one that produced these Moneyball quotes), heartwarming stories (watch Field of Dreams online) and even comedies (watch Major League online).
But, in the end what makes a great baseball movie is the same thing that makes the game our national pastime: Passion, heart and a feeling that on any given day, even those that had been counted out can rise and circle the bases in glory.
