    Why not use Dwayne Johnson (a.k.a. The Rock) He's got acting experience and he looks exactly like him.
    A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

        Mine wouldn't be rocket science, but it could be entertaining. Maybe it could make up a bit for some other not-do-good movies.

        Stuff
        The story of three pitchers coming up, two in the US and one in a Hispanic country. The US players play Little-League through HS, Legion maybe, etc., and the, let's say Dominican, gets signed young, plays in the inter, all that.

        So one American is drafted out of HS, the other goes to college, and the Hispanic enters as a FA. And so on, all the development of pitchers...

        Then they don't have to follow any formula, except maybe they end up on the same team. One could tear up his arm, another could become a closer, etc.
        (fantasy football)
        JM: Only did that for a couple of years and then we had a conspiracy so it kind of turned me sour. Our league's commissioner, Lew Ford(notes) at the time, was doing some shady things that ... I'd rather not talk about [laughs].
        DB: Isn't he in Japan right now?
        JM: I don't know where Lou is right now. He's probably fleeing the authorities [laughs].

          Duke Snider=Kurt Russell
          Roy Campanella=Omar Gooding
          Walter Alston= Ed Harris
          Gil Hodges=Ray Liotta
          Walter O`Malley=John Mahoney
          L.A Businessman =Dean Stockwell
          Mayor Of New York= Fred Thompson
          Mayor Of L.A= Ned Beatty
          NL Umpire =Tom Berenger
          New York Giants Pitcher =Roger Clemons
          New York Giants Catcher= Mell Ott
          St Louis Cards Pitcher= Nolan Ryan
          St Louis Cards Catcher= Rick Dempsey

          Pretty good Cast huh?

          MODs I forgot my Title "If you made as baseball move what would it be?" Could you add this please?
          While Liotta is probably highly capable of playing Hodges, I just can't get the image of him in Goodfellas out of my head and reconcile that with Gil Hodges.

            I would do something of how the MLB first originated form the American Association and how SPalding snagged all the best players. That would be interesting.
            "I don't like to sound egotistical, but every time I stepped up to the plate with a bat in my hands, I couldn't help but feel sorry for the pitcher."
            -Rogers Hornsby-

            "People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring."
            -Rogers Hornsby-

            Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

                I'd make a movie about the relocation fo the Montreal Expos, the whole thing that lead to it, from beginning to end:

                BON VOYAGE?

                -Rick Monday's homerun shot to win the NLCS for the Dodgers over Les Expos.
                -collapse of the 1994 season in which the Expos were the best team in MLB
                -highlights of what happened since 1994
                -resume in 1998, when the Expos were getting horrible.
                -2001 announcement made by Bug Selig, threatening to contract both the Expos and Twins.
                -How the Twins avoided contraction to form an AL Central dynasty of championships, while the Expos were made desolate and their stadium cave-like.
                -Jeffrey Loria sticking his nose into the situation, in which he would help worsen it.
                -The finale, the final season in 2004 in which the Expos would say goodbye.

                --Then the update, what's been going on since then, which leads to a sequel!:
                -The Minnesota Twins (A Melee with the County!)
                -The Florida Marlins (Jeffrey Loria's second strike!)
                -The Washington Nationals [formerly the Montreal Expos] (How the careers of the former Expos went on, along with what Bug Selig ended up doing!)

                As for the actors? Well, I only know one space has been filled:

                -4 randomly chosen Expos fans (via BBF )




                It has Oscar written all over it.
                -------------------------------------------
                Coming soon to a theater near you!:

                BON VOYAGE? II: GUTTED LIKE A FISH!

                My Top 4 funniest BBF posts ever:

                1) "plZ dOn;t' pOsT LikE tHIs n e mOr!"

                2) "The teams play 1962 games in 180 days."

                3) "Stadiums don't move silly, people do."

                4) "Once again you quibble, because it is I who speaks."

                5) Almost anything RuthMayBond says...

                  Well gil hodges was very friendly around the fans hes a very polite gentleman and Ray Liotta can play that type of personaly.

                    I'm waiting for Hollywood to put out any real baseball movie. It seems like half of them are gimicky, with dogs, and ghosts, and monkeys playing baseball. We need good old-fashioned baseball movies. About real players, and real games. Off the top of my head in the last 25 or so years there are only a small handful that accomplish this.
                    The Natural (yes it is a made up team and filled with alot of hollywood type moments, but the movie faithfully recreates the way we want to remember, or think the game was like in the good old days)
                    Eight Men Out (probably one of the most faithful recreations of the deadball era, and baseball in general ever made)
                    Bull Durham (romance wrapped around players in the minors, again a good recreation of life in the bush leagues)
                    For love of the game (yeah laugh if you want I like this movie, it is pure hollywood but it is inspiring. Don't know why just like this film)
                    Like I said their aren't many true "baseball" films being made anymore. Seems like most people would rather watch football movies, which seem to come out every week, than a good baseball movie.
                    unknown brooklyn cabbie " how are the brooks doin"
                    unknown fan "good they got three men on base"
                    unknown brooklyn cabbie "which one?"
