      ton of scandal and corruption and even death linked to new york baseball and tammany hall all the way from the beginning of the game in the 1860s through mcgraw in the 1920s. could make for quite a story with plenty of intrigue.

        well how about somebody does a remake of the Jackie Robinson story, If it hasnt been done already. I saw the 50's version where Mr. Robinson played himself but it wasnt exactly an award winning movie. Itd cool to see a good version of that and a good movie about Babe Ruth.

            My movie would be about the battle of Walter O'Malley to bring a new stadium to Brooklyn. It would start with his announcement in 1953 that he was looking for a new stadium and end with the wrecking ball destroying Ebbets Field.

            Among the cast of characters would be O'Malley, and Robert Moses, O'Malley's chief antagonist in the New York City government, who never seemed to want to help O'Malley keep the Dodgers in Brooklyn. Both characters had iron wills, and it would be a great movie for two actors to chew scenery.

            We could even see R. Buckminster Fuller and his proposal for a geodesic dome stadium for the Dodgers!

              I have seen a good movie about Babe Ruth before, but I didn't catch the title. Also I have saw the Jackie Robinson movie. I only payed a dollar for it at Kroger. :-)

                  I'd make a movie about a bunch of guys getting together for a baseball forum convention and eventually killing each other by the end of it.

                      were they arguing about whether joe jackson was guilty or not or were they arguing about their top-10 lists?

                        If you made a baseball movie, what would it be?

                        I would do a movie about Honus Wagner or Ed Delahanty. They were two of the early greats of the game. If I could remake a movie, I would do one about Babe Ruth and try to cast it better. John Goodman was really good as far as personality but Babe Ruth didn't always weigh 280 pounds. It bothered me that the producers conceded to allow Goodman to portray the young Ruth as a behemoth. Maybe the most compelling movie would be about Jackie Robinson. I would love to see Spike Lee take this up someday.

                            I take it I am the only one who would make a fictional movie? I'd sooner read about all the proposed stories (a biography of Williams, Ruth or Robinson) given thus far and have them play in my head rather than on the screen in front of me.
