Is Jeff Kurkjian a baseball movie expert? Well he came from a baseball family so we are going to go with “YES!” His Top 10 Baseball Movies list is not the end all be all list but hopefully you find some room to enjoy it.
Who’s Ready For Some Baseball??
We are currently in the most exciting time of the year because baseball is here baby!! When you aren’t watching baseball, you can maybe watch a movie about baseball! I have put together my Top 10 Baseball Movies list for you to binge ALL SEASON LONG! (yes, put them on repeat)
Made a list of my "Top 10 Baseball Movies Of All Time," but before I share mine, what's your outright #1 baseball movie?— Jeff Kurkjian (@jpkurkjian) March 7, 2023
If you didn’t know this already, my dad is Tim Kurkjian from ESPN. Not that it gives ME any expertise but it does help you believe that I’ve probably seen every single baseball movie that has ever been made because we watched those in my household more than even Disney!! You’ve probably hear him on the radio or on my podcast below!
There are so many great movies that surround baseball, it was almost impossible to narrow down this list but I was able to get my Top 10 Baseball Movies. However, I have to add a couple honorable mentions so I don’t get struck down by the baseball Gods!
First Honorable Mention: The Pride Of The Yankees
It can be tough for NON-Yankee fans to love a movie about the Yankees but this is a great film. Gary Cooper as Lou Gehrig, that’s awesome.
Second Honorable Mention: Bang The Drum Slowly
A young Robert DeNiro plays a catcher who ends up getting sick and befriends a pitcher. That’s all I can say, just go watch it! (but no, it didn’t make the top ten)
Third Honorable Mention: Damn Yankees
A musical about baseball?? Count me in!! This is a show I always wanted to be in. Unfortunately, my school changed my senior year musical from this to Willy Wonka, just my luck. But here’s the movie trailer version!
