The best big-screen ballplayers

Posted on


Mr3000_l With baseball season upon us, Sports Illustrated has drafted 10 of the most memorable onscreen ballplayers in movie history to its fantasy team. (Eleven, if you count groupie Jessica Biel from Summer Catch.) Great minds think alike, as we’ve just brought back our own gallery of the 10 best movie ballplayers, and there’s a lot of overlap. One player-to-be-named-later who didn’t make either of our lists — but should have — is Stan Ross (Bernie Mac, pictured), the unceremoniously unretired slugger from the underrated Mr. 3000. Anyone else we left out of our batting order who deserves a shot? Write in your own Hollywood Hall-of-Famers below.
