Baseball Goes to the Movies

From the early silent era to the present day, baseball movies have always been a staple of the cinema. Baseball Goes to the Movies chronicles America s fascination with the sport from the beginning of the sound era to the current decade covering the bases on all of the great baseball flicks, such as Field of Dreams (If you build it, he will come), The Pride of the Yankees (But today, today I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth), and A League of Their Own (There s no crying in baseball). The book also addresses several bad baseball movies, such as Ladies Day an abysmal comedy about a major league pitcher who cannot throw well when he is in love as well as an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture (Moneyball), a film that many believe is the worst sports film ever made (The Babe Ruth Story), and all of the films in between. As part of the discussion of many of the films, the baseball aspects of the movies are emphasised, with information about the players, the teams, the ballparks, interesting plays, statistics, baseball rules, and the legend and lore of the summer game. Baseball Goes to the Movies is for movie fans, as well as fans of the game.
