The crack of the bat. The roar of the crowd. The smell of ballpark franks. Yep, the 2011 Major League Baseball season is upon us. In tribute to our national pastime, we at RT have assembled a great lineup of our own: the best-reviewed baseball movies of all time!
From sentimental favorites to insightful documentaries to wild comedies, our list is a veritable murderer?s row of heavy hitters. And since baseball fans are stat geeks, we decided to let you in on our ground rules. We’ve used a weighted formula that takes into account a movie’s Tomatometer, number of reviews, and release date. Also, every movie here needed at least 20 reviews to qualify for inclusion.
