    Moneyball is such an incredible film, and like every single man of my generation, I have a soft spot for Field of Dreams. I’d also include Bull Durham and Major League here.

    Moneyball really is a deserving entry. Up there with Field of Dreams for me.

    No room for The Natural…another favourite of mine. Overall, a fantastic list.

    I’ve always had a soft spot for Bull Durham, which goes into so much other territory than just baseball…but yep, good to see Moneyball in there!
