All-Time Baseball Movie Roster

Unread postby consigliere » Tue May 08, 2007 8:27 am

Man, thought this was a helluva idea from Eisenberg:

http://mikeeisenberg.mlblogs.com/mikeeisenberg/

My All-Time 35-"Man" Baseball Movie Roster
Starting Lineup:

CF- Willie Mays Hayes (Major League)
3B- Kelly Leak (Bad News Bears)
RF- Roy Hobbs (The Natural)
C- Crash Davis (Bull Durham)
1B- Jack Elliot (Mr. Baseball)
DH- Jack Parkman (Major League 2)
2B- Marla Hooch (A League Of Their Own)
LF- Bobby Rayburn (The Fan)
SS- Benny Rodriguez (The Sandlot)
P- Steve Nebraska (The Scout)

Pitching Staff:
SP- Nuke LaLoosh (Bull Durham)
SP- Billy Chapel (For Love Of The Game)
SP- Eddie Harris (Major League)
SP- Henry Wiggen (Bang The Drum Slowly)
RP- Kenny DeNunez (The Sandlot)
RP- Miles Pennfield w/ headphones (Hard Ball)
RP- Amanda Whurlitzer (Bad News Bears)
RP- Henry Rowengartner (Rookie Of The Year)
RP- Chet "Rocket" Steadman (Rookie Of The Year)

RP- Sammy Bodeen (Talent For The Game)
Closer- Ricky Vaughn (Major League)

Bench:

1B- Jimmy Dugan (A League Of Their Own)
OF- Pedro Cerrano (Major League)
OF- T-Rex (Mr. 3000)
UTIL- Alan "Yea Yea" McClennan (The Sandlot)
C- Hamilton "Ham" Porter (The Sandlot)
Pinch Runner- Mickey Scales (Little Big League)
UTIL- Lou Collins (Little Big League)

Team Manager- Jarius "G-Baby" Evans (Hard Ball)
Radar Gun/Statistics- Annie Savoy (Bull Durham)
Head Coach- Lou Brown (Major League)
Pitching Coach- Phil Brickma (Rookie Of The Year)
Assistant Coach- Billy Heywood (Little Big League)
Hitting Coach- [against his will, of course] Jake Taylor (Major League)

If you've got anybody you'd like to add, I'd love to hear it. I'd be amazed if I missed somebody after that. I'll be back Tuesday night with an analysis of the long road to the Major Leagues.

Rube Baker will be left out of the lineup because as the great Jake Taylor once stated with sarcasm, "I think carrying 4 catchers is a good idea." But there is room in the minor leagues.

Are we counting "Eight Men Out" as a baseball movie? Or "Field of Dreams?" "Pride of the Yankees?" Are we simply eliminating all "real" ballplayers like Shoeless Joe Jackson and Babe Ruth?

Steve Nebraska is the man. What always bothers me about that movie is that he piotches game 7 of the World Series in New York, yet he bats. Since the game is in Yankee Stadium, they would have been using a DH. Damn Hollywood!

That's gotta be in there. Nice to see we have the closer and lead-off guy.

G-Baby in Hardball---still one of the two movies to make me cry. (Rudy being the other) :cry :cry:
