Major League was 1989’s better response to Bull Durham.  The film follows a farcical Cleveland Indians ball club with a new owner who has eyes on moving the ball club to Miami (these were the days before the Miami Marlins).  Despite a love story between another veteran catcher and an old flame (Tom Berenger and Rene Russo), the film’s real strength is its ensemble of colorful characters right down to Bob Uecker calling the game.
