The Greatest Baseball Movies

I just watched the preview for Moneyball on YouTube - I'll probably see it as I'm a bit of a sucker for baseball movies: the quintessential American sport captured by the quintessential American art form. Even the really terrible ones like The Babe and Cobb have their moments. Anyway, I'm pretty sure that 1000 people have already posted their list of greatest ever baseball films on the blogosphere (here's baseball almanac's list) but what the hell, like I say, I love baseball and I love movies so here’s mine:

1.Bull Durham
2.The Natural
3.The Bad News Bears
4.Field of Dreams
5.Eight Men Out
6.Pride of the Yankees
8.The Jackie Robinson Story
9.Bang The Drum Slowly
10.Major League
