Top 10 Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is movie freebie.
Baseball is my favorite sport to watch, I’m already counting down the days until when I can watch spring training games. So seeing as how baseball is my favorite sport, I thought it was only appropriate that I make my list my favorite baseball movies.
Moneyball- I love the book!
Field of Dreams
For the Love of the Game
Trouble with the Curve
A League of Their Own
Eight Men Out- I love the book!
Angels in the Outfield (1994)
Bad News Bears (2005)
Field of Dreams and Moneyball is the only one I’ve heard about out of this list. Fenway Sports Group was pretty invested in the Moneyball philosophy when they bought Liverpool FC, didn’t work out that well in the world of football.
I only watch American football, so I know nothing about Liverpool FC other than the fact that they are owned by Fenway Sports Group. I do know that the Moneyball philosophy works well in baseball.
I have not seen too many baseball movies, but can we totally count The Sandlot? I loved that movie as a kid. Must check out these titles, great list!
Thank you! I have seen the Sandlot, and did think about putting it on my list but it isn’t one of my favorites.
Your post has been very informative for me. I had no idea some of these were books before movies. 🙈 *hides head in shame* 😂
I’m glad you found it informative. I don’t think you’re alone in not knowing some were books first, it’s no big deal.
A League of Their Own is SO. GOOD. Moneyball is also a great book-to-movie adaptation that I enjoyed. My TTT for this week is exclusively books-turned-films, but I love your list as well! 🙂
I also LOVE baseball, and I LOVE A League of Their Own. It’s such a good movie!
Great Top Ten 😀 My Top Ten Tuesday!
