Interesting list. Some very good movies. Not sure any of the Disney movies
belong. How about #1 or 2, The Natural? One of the best ever. Bull
It takes way to long to load up any of these 'list' stories, so I
didn't bother. However, I do hope 'Caddyshack' is on the list.
Best movie about the best sport.
Oh my goodness. You left out Eight Men Out & Pride of the Yankees, which are
#2 & #3 in my book. And on top of that, the greatest MOVIE about sports is
Raging Bull. What kind of list is this...?John
I'd put "Breaking Away" on the list, too.
Hoop Dreams, Secretariat, The Black Stallion, Bingo Long's Traveling
All-Stars and Motor Kings, Grand Prix.....
"Pride of the Yankees" with Gary Cooper as Lou Gehrig is a classic. It
is in my top '3'. It is a tear jerker and a great movie.
The intro article is incorrect. Mariano Rivera of the Yankees currently wears
42. Players with the number 42 when it was universally retired were allowed to
continue wearing it for the rest of their careers.
I can't say anymore...I agree with everyone above about all those movies
should be on the list. Another dumb list by the D-News but again they forgot to
put Cael Sanderson and Gene Fuller on the original list of greatest athletes
from Utah so what can we expect...
