One of the best sports movies I've ever seen. I have a friend who's a total baseball nut, and this is the movie he quotes all the time. If he endorses it that's good enough for me.
The story takes place during one portion of a season with the Durham Bulls, a minor-league team in the Carolina League. It follows the players and hangers-on. Taking what I hope is a somewhat realistic look at how life really is in not only the minor leagues but on up through the majors.
One of my favorite scenes is the one where Crash Davis (Kevin Costner) teaches "Meat" LaLoosh (Tim Robbins) the cliches he will use when dealing with the press. After watching that scene, reading the sports pages was never the same.
