Which baseball movie has the greatest Hollywood ending?

No idea why in God's name they picked "For Love of the Game" as the third film to compare.   I guess Field of Dreams was inevitable with the Yankees/Sox game this past summer and then announcing it will be a yearly addition to the MLB schedule.

Off the top of my head, you have The Sandlot, Little Big League, The Bad News Bears, Major League (especially the first one with the suicide squeeze down the 3B line and Berenger's character collapsing after lunging for the 1B bag), Bang the Drum Slowly, Eight Men Out, Bull Durham, The Pride of the Yankees, Moneyball, 42, etc.

I found this one searching online, has really positive reviews and had never even heard of it....

Someone in the article mentioned the last thirty minutes...although technically not a pure baseball movie.

Is that about Nick Madrigal or the one with Tom Selleck?

That starred White Sox fan Bernie Mac.

The Natural.

Pride of the Yankees was a great baseball movie but as all of us know, the ending wasn't good.

Definitely The Natural.

They changed the ending from the book to make it Hollywood.

Exploding lights, magical music, the love of family and having a catch.

The Natural if only for Randy Newmans' score. Imagine what a downer that film would be with the novel's ending.

Battered is a really good watch and a true story.  Highly recommend.

Hadn't heard of this - put it on my list. Is it kid appropriate (by chance)?  I'm guessing more for adults but asking since my little one loves all things baseball.

Been awhile since I have seen it.  It is listed MA.  Don't recall any nudity.  Probably some profanity but don't recall anything.  Think as a documentary it is probably fine.  Think there is some alcohol.  Now you got me wanting to rewatch.  My wife liked a lot.
