Durham - of course he is. Betcha he's a bull on the mound.

Speaking of which, had the joy of watching Bull Durham again over the weekend w/ the wife. I absolutely love that movie. Just a great baseball flick.

Agreed, sadly it seems like there hasn't been a good baseball movie in a while let alone a really great one. Sports movies in general have been lacking recently... does The Wrestler count? The Fighter?

8 men out - Bull Durham. The first Major League was good for a chuckle - but no, can't think of any recent baseball movies that really struck a nerve - For Love of the Game was pretty good too, but that's gotta be a decade gone now...

I think Trouble With the Curve was last year. Not much to see however…

on edit: it appears that it was a 2012 release.

Knuckleball, but that was more of a documentary. It's a shame there aren't more.

Who here is old enough to remember Semi-Tough? North Dallas 40? (both football). I saw both in the theaters as a kid.

North Dallas 40 was a great flick. Slapshot, for those who like hockey, was/is a cult classic.
