A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "Shelf-Help" (Brownwood, TX United States)
The list author says: "There are others I may enjoy, but these are my favorites. A few that I'm interested in watching but have not yet seen include REQUIEM FOR A HEAVYWEIGHT, THE CHAMP, THE PRIDE OF THE YANKEES, SEABISCUIT, and MIRACLE."
Knute Rockne All American
1.  Knute Rockne All American DVD ~ Pat O'brien
The list author says:
  "1940.  Pat O'Brien and Ronald Reagan give performances of a lifetime.  The memorable Gipper speech is just one of the bright, shining gems."
$9.65   Used & New from: $1.98
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (70 customer reviews)

The Stratton Story
2.  The Stratton Story DVD ~ James Stewart
The list author says:
  "1949.  One of the best Jimmy Stewart/June Allyson collaborations.  Based on the true story of Monty Stratton, a baseball player who loses his leg.  Then he returns to the game.  Co-stars Frank Morgan, newly returned from a stint as a wizard in the land of Oz."
$5.35   Used & New from: $0.90
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (37 customer reviews)

Rocky II
3.  Rocky II DVD ~ Sylvester Stallone
The list author says:
  "1979.  For some reason, I always enjoyed Rocky II more than it's predecessor.  And the "Gonna Fly Now" sequence may be the best of all six films."
$6.99   Used & New from: $0.74
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (169 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

Hoosiers (2-Disc Collector's Edition)
4.  Hoosiers (2-Disc Collector's Edition) DVD ~ Gene Hackman
The list author says:
  "1986.  My family wore this movie out until I was sick of it.  (Probably payback for the number of times I wore out STAR WARS.)  But I still love HOOSIERS.  How could I not?"
$6.69   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (414 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Pastime
5.  Pastime DVD ~ William Russ
The list author says:
  "1990.  Most of my friends (who love sports much more than I do) have never heard of this underrated and thoroughly entertaining flick."
$29.98   Used & New from: $3.46
4.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

The Sandlot
6.  The Sandlot DVD ~ Tom Guiry
The list author says:
  "1993.  Quite possibly the best baseball movie ever.  No World Series.  No MVP awards.  Just a bunch of neighborhood kids spending their summer days with America's favorite pastime."
$14.88   Used & New from: $0.01
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (710 customer reviews) | 2 customer discussions

The Rookie (Widescreen Edition)
7.  The Rookie (Widescreen Edition) DVD ~ Dennis Quaid

  "2002.  Based on the true story of an aging coach turned player.  A true family movie through and through."
$9.09   Used & New from: $0.01
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (324 customer reviews)

Radio
8.  Radio DVD ~ Cuba Gooding Jr.

4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (254 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Rocky Balboa
9.  Rocky Balboa DVD ~ Sylvester Stallone
The list author says:
  "2006.  The only Rocky film I saw in theaters, and for me, the very best one.  I wish all sports movies could be as good as this one."
Used & New from: $0.01

The Blind Side
10.  The Blind Side DVD ~ Sandra Bullock
The list author says:
  "2009.  No one is more surprised than I am that THE BLIND SIDE made the list.  But this is one of my top favorite movies of any genre from the last five years."
