Guide to Baseball Fiction: Films

Back to the Main Guide Page

Films in the Guide are arranged by decade and by title within decade. This is not an exhaustive filmography, and not intended to be; what I've tried to do here is include adaptations of the literature that appears in other sections of the Guide, and to give the literary texts some cultural context. Scores of baseball films are not listed here, especially and unfortunately those that languish beyond the range of videotape and DVD.

For full information on individual films, see the Internet Movie Database.

Check out Reel Baseball for a very thorough look at baseball cinema. Discussions of several individual films appear on The Ascetic Sensualists.

For a look at baseball in general films, see Grella.
