Spring Training and The Top Baseball Films to Watch on Netflix

Baseball is a pretty important sport in our house.  You see, my husband collects baseball cards.  Yes, the kind that used to come with bubble gum and kids on the playground would trade at school.  However, the cards he collects come in hard plastic cases and no one can touch them.  Every now and then he lets me help him open them when he gets new, unopened packs on eBay, but this act of "romance" on his behalf comes with strict instructions to "…NOT bend the edges!!!"

For my oldest son, baseball is everything.  Specifically, Mike Trout and the Anaheim Angels  (I choose to call them the Anaheim Angels, because their actual name is just ridiculous).  He studies baseball card stats, watches ESPN during Spring Training, and even watches baseball movies and documentaries with his dad. My youngest worships his dad and brother, so he does whatever they do and, well, since that usually involves baseball, that means I have a house full of baseball nuts!  It comes as no surprise then, that for Christmas I bought my husband two tickets to the Angels' Spring Training in Phoenix, AZ, and then I proceeded to invite myself to his Spring Training weekend. Smart move on MY part!  HA!

We had a blast this past weekend in Phoenix.  It was fantastic! We went to an Angels vs. Dodgers game and while the day was a high of 97 degrees, my husband  caught a foul ball, so all was well in the world, after that!  Here are a few pictures of our trip:

To celebrate the fact that Opening Day is just a week away, I thought I'd put together a list of movies and documentaries on Netflix that have gotten my boys through Fall and Winter (aka. the baseball drought), and will certainly keep baseball fans at ease during the off-season.  Happy Watching!!!
