Three Degrees Of Pat Caputo 7-14-11

My three favorite baseball movies:

1. Field of Dreams -When Joe Jackson asks Ray, “Is this heaven,” it makes even a big lug such as myself want to cry.

2. *61 – Exceptionally done, other than making sportswriters look like knuckleheads. Thomas Jane and Barry Pepper were very convincing as Mantle and Maris.

3. Bull Durham – Just really, really funny.

Leave a comment and share your favorite three baseball movies.

    Love Field of Dreams and Bull Durham, never watched 61 but instead would put Major League there

    What about “For the Love of the Game”? I know, it’s really not the greatest movie, but fun to see a movie starring a Tigers player.
