There is a thread on this subject but I would say as of now these are my top 5.
1. Bad News Bears (1976) It was just a raw film and the ending is still a "I cant turn off kinda film." I still wish they won but I love how they drink beer and Tanner tells the Yankees off.
2. 61..The Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris movie made by Billy Crystal. I love some of the scenes which really did a good job of making it real. I dont think a baseball movie has ever picked actors who look the same as players.
3. Major league..I love the ending and it wasn't corny like the sequels.
4. Field Of Dreams...It was just a great story.
5. The Natural...But this is debatable because i loved Bang the Drum Slowly and Eight Men Out too.
I hate to admit it but I did like The League Of Their Own too. I really dont like Bull Durham too much anymore but i'll watch it if it's on.
MoneyBall was a good one too. But like a recent player who should be a top 5 position player, I dont think i'm ready to put this in my top 5 yet.

"I have the ultimate respect for Whitesox fans. They were as miserable as the Cubs and Redsox fans ever were but always had the good decency to keep it to themselves. And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)
