2. The Natural (1984)

10 of 11

If one movie captures the mysticism surrounding baseball, it is The Natural.  Robert Redford stars as an unassuming player with a seemingly-magic baseball bat that catapults him to super-stardom.  There’s an eerie uncertainness to Barry Levinson’s film and each cast member performs this to perfection.  Robert Duvall, Glenn Close and Kim Basinger costar in a film that explores baseball’s golden era.  Each shot of the film leads up to the epic final game of Redford’s protagonist.
