Welcome to the second round of our quest to anoint Halos Heaven’s ultimate baseball movie.

For this exercise, I’ve set up a 16 film bracket. To determine the films and seeding, I’ve crowd sourced 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.

I’ve reseeded all round one winners to create matchups that pit similar films against each other.

Today, we feature two films that focus on youth baseball. The Sandlot vs. Bad News Bears. Which of these childhood classics moves on, and which does not?
