    The Scout and Ed were pretty bad but everyone knew it going in. Angels in the Outfield and Rookie of the Year were kid movies about baseball. But "For the love of the Game" was supposed to be a good film, with good actors and directors. And it really sucked.

It was basically a sitcom version of "Major League" that wasn't funny and rarely showed any actual baseball being played.

    And I'm trying to remember the name without Googling it.
    Wasn't it "Hardball?"

    I know is a blog about the worst movies, but a very underrated movie that some people might not have seen is Long Gone. I think it was a HBO movie. It stared William Petersen (Stud Cantrell), Virginia Madsen (Dixie Lee Boxx) and Durmot Mulroney (Jamie Donn Weeks). It followed the Tampico Stogies, a St. Louis Cardinals minor league team in the 1950s. Check it out if you can find it. I think it is only available on VHS though.

    Probably. That sounds right. I didn't think it was, what with the Chris Matthews' show of the same name.

    Then, Fever Pitch over Summer Catch over Ed
    I've only seen bits and pieces of Summer Catch, but I had to share that I listened to a podcast with the director of that movie, and he said that Freddie Prinze Jr. was the worst athlete he's ever had to work with in a sports movie. He said they had to do tons of work to make it look like it was actually him throwing the ball, and that it would have been easier if they case Jessica Biel as the pitcher.

    Ed, Summer Catch, Rookie of the Year...

    If you haven't heard of it, I really liked The Bingo Long Traveling All-Stars and Motor Kings.

    Cobb and The Babe were absolutely horrendous. As was the Billy Bob Thornton remake of The Bad News Bears.

    OK now THAT I would have watched... probably more than once.
    I opine about the Twins and Kernels regularly at Knuckleballsblog.com while my alter ego, SD Buhr covers the Kernels for MetroSportsReport.com.

    It would be one I never watched. After seeing commercials for it, I was too appalled to see The Babe with John Goodman as a buffoonish version of The Bambino. I would love to see a real movie about the real Babe.

    Was it "the Rookie"? The one with the Twins farm team and he made it to the Majors. I think Tom Selleck, no it was "MR. Baseball"!

    Whatever the heck 'maudlin sentimentality' and 'mawkishness' is, I must crave it.
