Baseball, Books and Turkey, the Thanksgiving Way…
So here it is, the dreary winter and the “rat race” begins. Tis the season for dreaming of baseball and the summer. Well, to keep the imagination of the mind going I give to you a list of baseball movies that may be good for a stocking stuffer or two.
The list is in no specific order:
- The Natural with Robert Redford.
- 61 produced by Billy Crystal.
- When It Was A Game: Triple Play Collection.
- Ken Burns’ Baseball produced by Ken Burns.
- Field of Dreams with Kevin Costner.
- For Love of the Game with Kevin Costner.
- Bang the Drum Slowly by John Hancock.
- A League of Their Own by Penny Marshall.
- Bull Durham with Kevin Costner.
- 100th Anniversary of the New York Yankees.
While there are many movies to list, in my mind the above are worth watching to the baseball fan.
Until then, see ya at the park!
Joe Torre has made the correct decision on suspending Chase Utley for two games in the NLDS against the Mets.
All agree, it was an ugly and unjust slide into Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada, who got a broken leg in Game 2 of the NLDS.
If anything, this will give momentum to the already hot Mets. This will add fuel to their fire. This will be the series of all series.
As the saying goes, “You Gotta Believe,” all the way to the World Series.
Until then, see you at the NLDS.
