The First Baseball Movie

  The first baseball movie I ever saw was the original Bad News Bears. It had kids in it, so my parents didn't have a problem with me going to the theater to see it. If they had seen it first, I would have been forbidden to watch it. This movie is what kids were like when I was growing up. Social commentary aside, this was THE baseball movie of my generation.  

  Yeah, I need to watch this again.


  1. All-time classic film, not just a great baseball movie.

  2. True classic... Buttermaker struck out Ted Williams in a Spring Training game!

  3. I watched this recently. Hadn't seen the Bears in over 30 years! Still a great movie!
