IMDb Managing Editor Keith Simanton Talks Baseball Movies On 600 ESPN El Paso [AUDIO]

In the wake of the release of the new movie “42” last Friday and the anniversary of Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in MLB, there was a special segment on Monday’s SportsTalk.

We had the pleasure of having IMDb’s Managing Editor, Keith Simanton, to talk about his Top 10 Baseball movies of all time.

Simanton does not back down from his list. The only movie that he feels should be on his list is “Major League”. Other than that, he is happy with his choices.

1. Field of Dreams (1989)
2. The Bad News Bears (1976)
3. Bull Durham (1988)
4. The Pride of the Yankees (1942)
5. A League of their Own (1992)
6. Fever Pitch (2005)
7. The Natural (1984)
8. Moneyball (2011)
9. Mr. 3000 (2004)
10. Baseball (1994 Mini-Series)


Would you choose something different?

“It’s still just an incredibly original film… I showed it to my kids and when he goes back and meets Moonlight Graham for the first time, both my kids looked at me and were like, What is going on?”
