  • Baseball Stadiums in the movies

    I was just watching a HORRIBLE 1985 film called "Seven Minutes in Heaven".

    It had one scene that was set at Shea Stadium. There are some great shots of the stadium and some unusual angles that you normally wouldn't see on a televised game.



    It gave me the idea to start this thread. I know many movies have featured major league ballparks. Which ballparks and which movies?

    If you have a clip or image to contribute, that would be swell.

    The Blues Brothers (outside only of course )
    Rookie of the Year (notable because the movie ends with the Cubs winning the World Series!!! )

        I was 9 when that movie came out and I thought the Indians moved to Baltimore or something!

        On that note, Milwaukee County Stadium stood in for the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium in Major League I.

                Shea Stadium and Yankee Stadium:
                Bang the Drum Slowly
                (Some early shots were done in Yankee Stadium, but the filming had to be finished at Shea because of the 1973 renovation. Thus, the film jumps back and forth, depicting the two as one.)

                    Actually, no. They beat the Mets in some sort of game to win either the NL East or NL Championship.

                      The kid had a World Series ring on his hand at the end of the film which made little sense considering the Cubs lost their best pitcher and their closer (the kid) to injuries.

                          Righteous Kill (With Pachino and Deniro) features a shot of RYS in the background, before racking focus to the face of one of the two detectives (I forget which) strangely, it features bunting on the outside, like it had for the ASG, which seams strange, since it was released in September of this year and the movie should have been in post by July.



                          Excellent Movie BTW, I highly recommend it.

                            They showed grit and their intangibles factor was through the roof.

                            I was smart enough not to watch that movie.
