2022 Dodgers Favorite Baseball Movies Might Surprise Fans
It has been a long time coming for the Dodgers to host their annual Blue Diamond Gala. Players showed up and showed out in formal attire with their family and loved ones by their side back in June.
This was the first time Dodger Stadium was able to host the Gala since the pandemic hit in 2020 and put the whole world on pause. The stars were out and looking good to support the Los Angeles Dodgers Foundation.
Many Dodger players, coaches, broadcasters, and celebrities showed up to the blue carpet and were bombarded by the media.
Our very own Doug McKain aka DMac was out there for the Gala to interview people in part of the organization and celebrities. However, none of the other media members compares to the likes of DMac, hitting them with the questions that really matter.
It’s nice to see the players show a different side of themselves instead of always answering the hard-hitting, detailed questions. We hardly see our favorite players be themselves with the media, you usually have to follow them on social media but even some don’t express themselves like that in public.
Luckily, our Dodgers have great taste in movies and named off a few of the nostalgic films that are still iconic to this day.
One of the answers that is surprising came from Dodgers second baseman, Gavin Lux. “Major League” is a movie that came out in 1989 and Lux is only 24-years-old, but that movie is a great choice and a good laugh.
One other surprising thing is not a lot of people said, “The Sandlot.” “The Sandlot” is beloved by many people, even those who aren’t into baseball, it is ageless movie and is super re-watchable (especially during the summer time).
There are so many great baseball movies out there, so it’s tough just to pick one.

The greatest and most realistic baseball movie of all time (so far) is “Bang The Drum Slowly”. It features DeNiro in his movie debut, and is true to life.
The greatest baseball movie of all time has not been made yet. It will be the documentary of the generation-long Dodgers dynasty that began on the day Frank McCourt was ousted, and took flight in 2017. The story of players overlooked by other teams and ridden to success by the Dodgers (JT, CT3), the amazing rehabilitation of the best farm system, the outstanding coaching, and of course the key players who started it (Kemp, Ethier, Gonzalez), and the big three that brought it to fruition (Betts, Turner, Freeman), and two outstanding coaches (Roberts, and I still give points to Mattingly). That is going to be a fabulous movie.
Sounds good to me, but see “Bang The Drum Slowly” first!
