Today marks the first official day of baseball season! Which
team are you rooting for? Whether you love watching the sport as much as we do,
or have no desire to tune in, there’s one thing that might make ya heart
baseball just a li’l bit more (and, no, we’re not talking about the hot
athletes—though that never hurts!). Pop in these flicks centered around
America’s pastime and you might find yourself cheering on the home team this
Bad News Bears (1976 and 2005—we love them both!)
This classic was remade almost 30 years after the original,
and we heart them both. It’s a funny movie about a team of misfits who are
trying to play baseball, but they have a serious losing streak. The team is saved
when the coach recruits more players—and one of them is a girl! Who says throwing like a girl is a bad thing?
The Sandlot (1993)
From name calling to running from “The Beast,” this movie
had us cracking up the whole time. It’s about a boy who’s new to town and joins
the neighborhood baseball league. Will he prove himself to be a valuable member
of the team? Well, you’ll have to watch to find out.
Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch (2002)
Baseball + a dog and his puppies = one great flick. We heart
Disney’s Air Bud because it’s so
sweet and heart warming. The cute pooch helps Andrea learn to play ball once
she joins the junior high team…but then he disappears. How will she get Buddy
back? She can’t play without him!
The dude who played Napoleon Dynamite stars in this movie,
so you know it’ll get you laughing! This hilarious flick is a classic tale of
the underdog making it to the top. Watch as Gus and his buds defeat Gary’s
This is a great movie to watch with your dad or older bro
over the weekend. Based on a true story, this flick is about trying to form a
baseball team on a tight budget. Also, to choose players, Billy Beane (played
by Brad Pitt!) uses a computer program to figure out which ones are good, which
sparks a controversy. Check it out!
