Baseball Movie All Star Team The Baseball Movie All Star Team

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball.”

Terrence Mann (James Earl Jones, Field of Dreams) was right about a lot, but when it comes to the portrayal of America’s pastime in film, he was spot on. Countless sports films are piled up in the annals of movie history – many of which are fleeting memories – but dozens of characters in baseball movies have remained favored throughout the years. There just is no other sport with an essence and culture that translates to film as well as baseball.

Got any favorite baseball characters not on the roster? Keep in mind, they have to be fictional. Unleash on the comments board below and let us know what you think.

  1. NOT ONE from Field of Dreams? Oh, forgot, not a baseball movie…silly me.

    • Only problem is that this is a fictional baseball team, all of the players in Field of Dreams were real players.

  2. NOT ONE from Field of Dreams? Come on now.

  3. My only concern is your starting CF and LF are the same actor. While I understand this is a fantasy lineup, I think there should be some reality. Overall though, you list some of the most fantastic characters from movies, sports or otherwise.

  4. Filed of Dreams is based on real baseball players

  5. I'm a little surprised no one from Angels in the Outfield made the team…

  6. YES! Benny the Jet at SS is a perfect fit!

  7. haha, Nelson, i almost did, but convinced myself they were being supported by outside sources and no angels would be present. also, it may be cause for suspicion, a la Steroids.

  8. Baseball teams have 25 man rosters, not 35.

  9. 40-man rosters on September 1st…besides…who cares? i filled out a complete roster and 6 of them aren't even players.

  10. i think the mascots should be the gang from “The Warriors”

  11. haha, awesome

  12. that's what makes it grate.

  15. You need Jimmy Morris in there as a reliever from (The Rookie) Dennis Quaid

    • Jimmy Morris was a real player/person!

  16. Great list…but if Ruddebaker, er, Gardenhoser, er, Rowengartner makes it from Rookie of the Year, his longtime nemesis HAS to get on the squad…

    Alejandro “Butch” Heddo — he “eats fastballs for breakfast”

  17. How about King Kelly from ‘It Happens Every Spring’?

  18. You forgot Darrel Palmer from Sluggers Wife….he broke the home run record in that movie

  19. What about Kenny Powers in there?

    He should easily be in the starting rotation!

  20. George Knox or Jimmy Dugan head coach or this list is void.
