Rookie of the Year

You could just google “baseball movies”

Perhaps if you give a little more background as to what you’re specifically looking for? “I’m researching baseball in movies” is about as ambiguous as saying “I might be a little bit pregnant.”

Field of Dreams is one of favorite baseball movies.

(If you build it, he will come.) Creeeepy.

Maybe try Baseketball (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0131857/). It’s a combination of both baseball and basketball.

My Baseball Movie Rankings
1. The Natural (By far the best!)
2. Field of Dreams
3. The Sandlot

I haven’t seen Pride of the Yankees, or a few of the others mentioned here, but I will probably watch them sometime. I like baseball, and I like it as a framework for telling stories too.

There is a baseball scene in one of the Naked Gun comedies, where the leading guy is disguised as the umpire or something. That may get overlooked because it is not a baseball movie, but it could be relevant to your research.
