Top 10 Baseball Movies

WTOP Film Critic Jason Fraley counts down his favorite baseball movies.
7. A League of Their Own (1992)
What happens when the men go off to World War II and major leaguers are replaced by Rosie the Riveters? The answer: "A League of Their Own."
The film put a 180-degree spin on the male-dominated baseball flick, showing that women could flash the leather just as well on the diamond. Geena Davis earned a Golden Globe nomination as Dottie Hinson, who leads the Rockford Peaches (Madonna, Rosie O'Donnell) against her kid sister Kit (Lori Petty), while waiting for her husband (Bill Pullman) to return from war. Still, it was Tom Hanks who stole the show as the drunken, broken-down manager who taught the world an important rule: "There's no crying in baseball!"
The film made Penny Marshall the first female director in history with two $100 million grossers, "A League of Their Own" and "Big" (1988), both with Hanks.
