    LEAST Favorite Baseball Movie

    Cody Christie started a fairly popular thread when he asked the question what everybody's favorite baseball movie is. I'm heading in the opposite direction and will ask what everybody's LEAST favorite baseball movie is. I'll kick things off by recommending Summer Catch as the worst baseball movie I have ever seen. How about you?

    The Scout was bad. I'm weird, but The Natural is way too boring for me to ever watch again.

    This should get you expelled from TwinsCentric.

    Especially considering the strength of the novel by Malamud. I argue the novel The Natural is very nearly a baseball horror novel.

    There will never be a worse insult to the game of baseball than the baseball-playing wretchedness in Twilight. Ty Cobb's ghost should have spiked each and every damned sparkly vampire in his or her face.

    I'd like to think there's still time for this to happen.

    A league of their own. Interesting story, horrible baseball.

    Fever Pitch. What was up with letting Fallon and Barrymore run around on the field after the Red Sox won?..as if waiting 86 years wasn't bad enough. Then seeing the movie there was absolutly no point of that scene. Won't make the mistake of watching that one again.

    Also man is The Natural novel bad. I don't think I've ever seen another movie that was so much better than the book.

    Has anyone seen the Scout? haha wow, talk about outlandish story lines.

    Then, Fever Pitch over Summer Catch over Ed

    I'm going to have to go with Ed. Joey from "Friends" and a chimp? You really can't have a baseball movie worse than that.

    Best movie is The Natural. The worst for me is Major League 3.

    What are you talking about, I loved the Scout and Fever Pitch!!

    The scene in Fever Pitch, where the season tickets arrive it a classic. I'm still waiting to run out in the snow barefoot to greet the mailman with my tickets.


    The first hour of the Scout is very funny, it did seem to drag on once they made it back to New York, but then again, I always thought that was just me hating the Yankees.

    I'm with Seth...I'm not a fan of The Natural. I don't like obvious, hit-me-over-the-head cinema cliches. Do we really need to see Glenn Close in a white dress, with a white hat that looks like a halo, completely backlit, with romantic blurriness to understand that she's his angel? And that's just ONE of the many, many cliches in that movie.

    Can't say which is the worst baseball movie I've seen but I have no love for Field of Dreams. Overwrought mawkish and maudlin sentimentality. (Redundancy deliberate, like the movie.)

    Sandlot 2 or Sandlot 3. Not sure why they wanted to re-make a good movie. Plus one of the re-makes follows the basic plot line from the original movie.

    fever pitch was bad just because of the dumb drama that they tried to bring into the movie, otherwise it woulda been good

    It HAS to be For the Love of the Game. First of all, Kevin Costner plays for the Tigers. Secondly, it revolves around one of the most unlikely baseball events, the perfect game. Third, Costner is the WORST ACTOR EVER in this movie!

    Hated The Natural.
