List Criteria: Vote up the best baseball movies about players and teams

The top baseball movies, ranked by fans. This list of the all-time best baseball movies includes popular classics like 'The Natural' and 'The Sandlot,' and covers all the best baseball films to have ever hit theaters. Which baseball movie is your favorite? Are you a 'Field of Dreams' fanatic or a 'Major League' fan? Be sure to vote for your personal favorite baseball films, add any great ones that might be missing and definitely re-rank this list in any order you want.

Some of the greatest and most inspirational sports movies ever made are about baseball. Examples include 'The Rookie,' 'The Natural,' 'The Bad News Bears' and the quintessential sports comedy 'Bull Durham.' This 1988 classic is not only a fantastic film about baseball, but it's also, arguably, among the best romantic comedies of all time.

Not surprisingly, a lot of films listed here are also some of the best family drama movies. Some of them, like 'The Bad News Bears,' 'The Rookie' and 'A League of their Own,' are also really awesome sports movies about coaches.

Not all of the all-time best baseball films are fiction, however. Some are actually documentaries, like Ken Burns' 'Baseball.' Is it one of the greatest? You decide, with your votes.
