Baseball: Movies About a Great Game

Baseball HeaderBaseball, as we know it, has been around since the time of the Industrial Revolution. It has lasted through two World Wars, and countless recessions, depressions, scandals, and modernization. With the advent of movies, films began to be made about this great game.
