Ever wonder who are the best baseball player characters in film history? Plenty of people have their own opinions on who are the best fictional baseball players. Some characters in films are newcomers looking to make the team, while others are old veterans that come out of retirement for one final chance at the big leagues. More than a few of them are based on real-life ball players.

Who do you think are some of the best baseball player characters in film? Dottie Hinson from A League of Their Own had movie-goers wishing that they could throw like a girl. Geena Davis and Tom Hanks led a talented cast in this 1992 feel-good film. Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn from the Major League series is almost as unpredictable as the actor who portrayed him – Charlie Sheen. George “Buck” Weaver (John Cusack) from Eight Men Out is another good ball player character.

Kevin Costner played Crash Davis in Bull Durham to perfection, but he also gets a gold star for appearing in the baseball classic, Field of Dreams. Other roles that are featured on this top baseball player characters in film list include Willie Mays Hayes, Lou Gehrig, and Jack Elliot from Mr. Baseball.
