Previously, we listed the best horror movies to watch in bed. Now that it’s spring, and baseball season is in full swing, it’s time for the best baseball movies to enjoy on your mattress. Many people talk about curling up with a good book on rainy days, but why not a good movie? Here are the best movies to watch when the game gets rained out:
Curl Up on Your Mattress with These Baseball Classics!
- Field of Dreams: Iowa farmer, Ray Kinsella, played by Kevin Costner, hears a voice that says, “If you build it, they will come.” He interprets this message as an instruction to build a baseball field on his farm, and the ghosts of Shoeless Joe Jackson and the other seven Chicago White Sox players banned from the game for throwing the 1919 World Series appear. When the voices continue, Ray seeks out a reclusive author, played by James Earl Jones, to help him understand the messages’ meaning and the field’s purpose. Whether or not you hear voices, your mattress can become your own personal field of dreams.
- Major League: The new owner of the Cleveland Indians puts together a purposely horrible team so they’ll lose and she can move the team. But when the plot is uncovered, they start winning just to spite her. You won’t lose sleep with this winning cast featuring Charlie Sheen as Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, but you will have a great time with lots of laughs curling up on your mattress.
- A League of Their Own: This 1992 classic is based on the story of the Rockford Peaches, one of a number of all-women’s professional baseball teams formed during World War II while many of their male counterparts were fighting in Europe. Geena Davis stars as Dottie Hinson, the team’s star catcher, locked in an intense sibling rivalry with her pitcher sister Kit (Lori Petty). Tom Hanks rounds out the eccentric team as Jimmy Dugan, the alcoholic ex-ballplayer who takes the managerial reins. While there may be, “no crying in baseball,” we cannot guarantee you won’t shed a tear while relaxing on your mattress and watching this movie.
- The Sandlot: Scotty Smalls moves to a new neighborhood with his mom, played by Karen Allen, and step dad, played by Dennis Leary, and wants to learn to play baseball to fit in with the neighborhood kids. The neighborhood baseball guru, Benny “The Jet” Rodriquez, takes Smalls under his wing, and soon he’s part of the local baseball buddies. They fall into adventures involving baseball, tree house sleep-overs, the desirous lifeguard at the local pool, the snooty rival baseball team, and the travelling carnival. Beyond the fence at the back of the sandlot menaces a legendary ball-eating dog called The Beast, and the kids inevitably must deal with him.
