'42' Chatter: Tell Us Your Favorite Baseball Movie

Warmer temperatures are invading most cities. Major League Baseball teams have taken the field for the start of the season. And at theaters this weekend, Hollywood will retell the biographical story of trailblazing baseball player Jackie Robinson in the heartwarming 42
 
Chadwick Boseman will play Robinson, an incredibly gifted baseball player who fought against racial segregation to carve out a place for himself – and future African-American ball players – in the major leagues. Harrison Ford joins Boseman as Branch Rickey, the general manager of the Brooklyn Dodgers who took a chance on Robinson and signed him to a contract with the iconic team. 
 
The rest, as they say, is history. 
 
42 joins a long line of Hollywood baseball movies. Some celebrate past scandals (Eight Men Out). Most celebrate the love of the game (The Natural, A League of Their Own). And the best seem to star Kevin Costner, whether it’s Bull Durham, For the Love of the Game or Field of Dreams. He is Hollywood’s all-star when it comes to baseball movies, that’s for sure. 
 
With 42 heading to theaters on Friday, tell us your favorite baseball movie. Why do you like it? When is the last time you’ve seen it? 
 
And to help get you in the mood, we’ve included the 42 trailer below. Play ball!
