It doesn’t get more classic than Bazooka gum and the sound of an ump yell, “Play Ball!” Graduate your kiddos to the big leagues with these baseball movies that celebrate America’s greatest pastime. We promise no matter what team you root for, you won’t balk at our picks.
Bonus: We’ve linked to each movie’s review on Common Sense Media so you can fully vet before switching it on.
If you’ve only seen this movie once, chances are you remember the cornfield saying, “If you build it they will come.” And build a baseball field Ray (played by Kevin Costner) did. Players of baseball past emerge out of the cornfield to play on the Field of Dreams, which is a place (and movie) as much about baseball as it is about following your dreams.
