Column: ‘Field of Dreams’ and more bad baseball on film

Major League Baseball is heading to the “Field of Dreams” next season to pay homage to a terrible flick.

Yep, the Chicago White Sox will face the New York Yankees in a temporary stadium, to be constructed among the Iowa cornfields where that corn pile of a movie was filmed.

Given my contempt for “Field of Dreams,” many have asked for my reaction.

I say: Don’t stop there.

So, what thoughts do all of you have concerning how baseball has been portrayed in film, either in the movies listed in the article or elsewhere?
