"...He can't hit, he can't hit, he can't hit, he can't hit...swing batter." April 5th officially kicked off the 2015 Major League Baseball season with the infamous rivalry between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs. For the next six months, both divisions will be battling it out on the dusty diamond in hopes of winning a fancy schmancy ring that's full of bling, bling, bling.

We're hip to the fact that most of you might not realize that the MLB is officially underway as you are balls deep in NACKA's spring kickball season. Of course we understand your priorities here...but we would never want "America's favorite past-time" to be forgotten and completely overshadowed because of our ridiculously awesome league. That would just make us feel bad. So for this reason, we have compiled a fantastic list of must-see baseball movies that will have you chewing, spitting, and scratching your junk in public in less than two hours (not that any of you need more of a reason to touch yourselves in public). As you're watching, please remember that NACKA is an equal opportunity sports enthusiast.

Because we are a stellar kickball league and not Siskel & Ebert circa 1988, the following movies are listed only in alphabetical order. When it comes time to put some Kickball teams in a list...we'll rank the shit out of that. But until that time...pick a few, oil your glove, bust out the sunflower seeds, and start streaming.

*NACKA Note: We realize that some of these movies are cheesier than the queso dip at Chili's. But sometimes we all need to add a little bit more cheese into our diets.
