  1. Reblogged this on Life in Technicolor and commented:
    A very informative infographic!!!

  2. Great infographic as always. I think the cliches are why I like baseball movies so much–so comforting, so reassuring, so the same every time.

  3. Now everybody! Say it with me in the gravelly voice of “the elderly manager”, the late, James Gammon…”DORN! What’s this ole’ shit??!”

    “There goes Roy Hobbs, the best there ever was in this game.”

    What an awesome infographic! I don’t know anything about baseball but the graphic sure is pretty.

  6. Bwahahahaha…and so true, as I’m a huge fan of baseball movies! I also miss ol’ Lou Brown. “You may run like Mayes but you hit like shit.” LOL every time.

  7. Yeah I have to say other than Moneyball, Sandlot, and The Rookie. I don’t know of any other good baseball movies that were worth while.
