Major League Turns 20


fd9qayofI was remiss in not paying attention to this yesterday, and for that, I truly apologize.

20 years ago yesterday, my favorite baseball movie, and where I learned most of my swears, Major League was released. Since then Ricky Vaughn, Willie Mays Hays and Pedro Cerrano have battled gamely every day, and it is impossible to flip past it on TV and not stop. I can recite every line in this movie, it makes me the happiest. I for one think Bull Durham is overrated and that Major League is by far the best baseball movie out there.

My only question, does Lou know that Jake is going to call his shot, is that part of the signs that Jake signals to him before his at-bat? Because if teams have a sign for calling ones shot, I’d find that ridiculous.

    lou is smart enough to realize, thanks to his 30 years managing in the minors, that jake is pulling a “Jim Brown”, e.g. a con where the yankees are distracted by him calling his shot, thus making it next to impossible that they’d be ready for a bunt.

    that’s just my take. i’m more interested in charlie sheen a) being scared of roger dorn (especially after it was established throughout the film that sheen was a badass and dorn was a pussy), and b) feeling like he was in any way at fault after fucking dorn’s wife. i mean, he didn’t know who she was, he’d never met her, she didn’t give her name till after, and she willingly fucked him after coming on to him at a bar. how is that vaughn’s fault?!
