Movie of the Week - Eight Men Out (1988)

This is one of the most underrated baseball movies ever made. In my opinion, ever bit as good or better than The Natural and right up there with Bull Durham and Field of Dreams.

You'll get to see a young John Cusack, Charlie Sheen and D.B. Sweeney in action. David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck) has a great role in this movie as well.

What I enjoyed the most about this movie is the insight it gave you into one of the most infamous incidents in baseball history. It also tells the story of why one of the best and most beloved players in baseball history (Shoeless Joe Jackson) was banned for life from the game he loved so much.

All around great movie the whole family can watch. Go rent it today.

I'll be typin' at ya later,
