The American pastime has lent itself to countless films. But which one is the consensus favorite among the HH faithful? Let’s find out.

For this exercise, I’ve set up a 16 film bracket. To determine the films and seeding, I’ve crowdsourced rankings from Rotten Tomatoes, Ranker, and the ultimate authority on everything, Stirrups. Then I’ve added a dash of my own influence to include a couple of Angels-centric titles and make a bracket that makes sense.

So, let’s get started!

Today’s battle matches the top seeded Bull Durham, a tale of minor league baseball featuring Kevin Costner, Susan Sarandon, and Tim Robbins going up against Cobb, a biopic of the great Ty Cobb as portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones.

Which, is the film moves on the to quarterfinals and which gets sent to the dusty drawer full of DVD’s?
