There is something lovely about baseball movies, at least the better ones. Maybe it's just tapping into the 10 year old in me, but the iconic moments, where baseball is the metaphor for life, or the escape to simple lessons in a complex and damnable world, are wonderfully satisfiying. "The Winning Season" has me adding it on after "Bull Durham" and some of the better ones. It's syrupy but romantic.
