BallparkBob’s Top 100 Sports Movies

Based on the phenomenal success of BallparkBob’s Top 50 Baseball Movies, which was picked up by ESPN and NESN to name a few, BallparkBob introduces BallparkBob’s Top 100 Sports Movies of all-time.

What makes for a good sports movie?

A movie with a memorable line that people still quote today is an important criteria.  ”Yo, Adrian!”

Then, there’s the movie that puts a lump in the throat of even the toughest of guys.  It’s the lump in the throat of a man that only could occur in a sports flick.  Think Brian’s Song, Field of Dreams, or Rudy.

As for sequels, I look for the entire series as a whole.  So, no points off for Rocky V.

I do have preferences.  I love all sports, but I really love baseball.  I am also partial to color so some of the older flicks just don’t do it for me as much as if they were in color.  And, I believe that cheerleading is a sport if its competitive cheerleading.

Finally, bring on the heat for my too high ranking of Summer Heat.  I know.  Its a chick flick with a baseball sub-plot, but I like that it shows a different element of baseball with the Cape Cod League.  Watch the video at the bottom of the page and see if you don’t agree with me that this is a highly underrated film.
