The standards the game is famous for, set by Joe Davis and his era, remain today and it makes me proud to be part of a game where sportsmanship is so very important.

  • Another one gone too soon. I started watching some of her movies since her passing, some that I’d never seen before. She was excellent portraying John Gotti’s wife Victoria in “Gotti” alongside her husband John Travolta in the title role. He was excellent also. BREAST CANCER AWARENESS is vital.

  • Looks can be deceiving. My first interdiction to Kevin Costner ( as I remember) was water world. A film I saw as, meh. Ok but meh. I have learned how to appreciate more since then.

  • For those thinking, “How is it that #60 got the last out, but #61 is the one being welcomed back into the Yankee dugout?” Well, having just watched the clip of the beginning of the game, #61 would have been in the on-deck circle because he was the #1 hitter in the lineup if the #9 had gotten on, he would have had to hit. So, it’s NOT a continuity error, but for those of us who watch clips and freeze-frame videos, it SEEMS like one! He’s also coming back into the dugout with his bat the runner would not have gone back to get his bat from first base.

  • take us to Vegas For the love of the game: So let us rise So let us run’ were we stop nobody know’s Lets stay forever young With our lives to run As i’m passub down these city streets I can’t help but notice these marching feet It takes me back to when i was young I wanted something more When all i had to say Is’ All i need is a pen and a page Let nothing get in my way Today’s the day I’m gonna make a change So let us ride So let us run Where we stop nobody knows Let us scream ’til the morning comes Scream for your life, live for the love Before they tear your hopes apart And let the thrill be forever young With our lives on the run As i look back on this life I’ve lived Just been a sheep dressed in wolved clothing What happend to shooting for the stars? What happend to living for a cause? But now I’m on my way I won’t ever conform to the ways of the day to day So stand up Make a change So let us ride So let us run Where we stop nobody knows Let us scream ’til the morning comes Scream for your life, live for the love Before they tear your hopes apart And let us thrill be forever young With our lives on the run………….
    I’m tired of waiting This risk is worth taking It’s time to break free And set out for my dreams Now reality’s dawning My true life is calling This time I’m ready for fucking anything. So let us ride So let us run Where we stop nobody knows Let us scream ’til the morning comes
    Scream for your life, live for the love Before they tear your hopes apart And let the thrill be forever young With our lives on the run.

  • The steroetypical Yankee fans are based on a group that used to get general-admission seats before they got rid of those, and rode the subways as a group to and from Met and Yankee games.

  • this is one my most favorite movies of all time, such a great flick, and me being from Detroit only makes it that much more special to me

  • Talking about game… of course it’ll be No Game No Life:D ♥
    CLICK THIS ↪ �� Cherry’s Official 24/7 Nightcore Radio Live Stream ��: https://www.youtube.com/c/Cherriexin/live

  • Casting Director: “Ok, we need to fill the role of catcher here…” (John C. Reilly walks in) “Sometimes this job is too easy. It’s just too bad Sal Fasano couldn’t act.”

  • I have a problem with the announcers constantly stating that this rookie player does not understand the gravity of the situation. Of course he has more of a chip on his shoulder and is hungry for his first hit, no matter the circumstances, but surely if every fan in attendance is rooting for the opposing pitcher to complete the obvious perfect game in the making, a professional player who has spent his whole life devoted to the game understands the magnitude of a future hall of famer throwing a perfect game at yankee stadium in his final career start lol

  • What a bad edit…. when dude is batting he’s #60. When he walks into the dugout he’s #61
    Continuity people! That’s somebodies ENTIRE job

  • Every time Scully opens his mouth I want to ram my fist down it. I’m surprised he didn’t take a dig at the black guys for having the nerve to try to exercise their constitutional rights

  • Are the batters supposed to be mad at the pitcher now for celebrating? Beam him when he comes up to bat? Oh that’s right pitchers don’t hit. What a boring end to a movie. A no hitter is boring game. Hit tanks and flip the bat and you pussy pitchers understand it not all about you.

  • This is the only part that I didn’t get. The obviously fast lefthanded hitter hit a chopper off the pitchers glove then the ball took about 5 hops, then the infielder dove for the ball, got up and threw the runner out. Not realistic. But still a great movie.

  • No Yankee fan would cheer that loud if they loss a perfect game in the last day of the season and losing a playoff spot at the same time lol. But hey that’s the beauty of movies anything is possible. I know I’m a Yankee fan lol.

  • This film tried to be a guy and a chick flick with mixed results. I like how they had him in the role of spoiler, where a losing team gets a big game at the end of the year and leaves nothing on the table.

  • Hated this movie!! More Kevin Costner virtue signalling.
    No one throws perfect games against the Yankees!! (yes, I’m sure there has been one before)

  • This scene, birch, the yankee fan, yankee coach, tiger coach and jane, prepared me for Halladay’s final out of his post season no hitter

  • THIS IS THE BEST SONG IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!! GOOD JOB CHERRY, ONLY LOVE FOR YOU!!!!!!!! LET THE THRILL BE FOREVER YOUNG WITH OUR LIVES ON THE RUN!!!!!!!!!

  • Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, and For Love of The Game. That right there is a damn fine way to spend an afternoon. The top three baseball movies, and three of the best damned sports movies of all frikkin’ time.

  • This movie showed us the full range of kelly prestons talents. She left acting about 20 years ago but she was that rare actress who commanded every scene she was in

  • After seeing John C Reily in Step Brothers…its hard to take him seriously in his old roles. Days of Thunder. This movie. I see his face I think of is when he says “Suppose Nancy sees me coming out of the shower and decides to come on to me. I’m looking good, got a luscious V of hair going through my chest pubes down to my ball fro. She takes one look at me and goes, ” Oh, my God, I’ve had the old bull, now I want the young calf,” and she grabs me by the weiner”

  • The blue haired guy looks like CandyPop! Though I know it isn’t…. it’s a shame though. CandyPop is an… interesting soul stealing guy.

  • My names Ray Kinsella and I’m supposed to take you to a baseball game… dang it, I mean my names Billy Chalpel I want to take you to a baseball game.

  • This is why baseball is special, when things like this happen (perfect games, no hitters, hitting for cycle, records broken etc) it doesn’t matter if it is against your team or not. At that moment you are just a fan of the game.

  • This was a great movie…..she was beautiful and really a good actress…RIP. No one can play a charming, midwestern sports hero like Kevin Costner. I so love him.

  • To everyone saying that the last batter’s Jersey number changed from 60 to 61 at the 4:19 mark: that’s the guy that was on deck. The last batter is left handed, whereas the guy on deck is right handed, as seen by the ear coverings on their respective helmets, and the fact that the guy on deck is carrying his bat back to the dugout. A batboy would’ve picked up the bat that the last batter used.

  • 1:14 “Oh God, Billy, think. Don’t just throw.”
    Another pitcher in a previous life: “No, Meat, don’t think, just give him the gas.”

  • As I type this, this video has 138,868 views and has been up for only 2 weeks. The user who posted currently has 116 subscribers, so it’s not a product of their subs watching it. In most cases, that many people were seeking out a clip (I came here via an impulse click in my recommended feed) from a 20+ year old film that by any objective standard isn’t widely popular or well regarded ($46 mill b/o vs. a $50 million dollar budget, %48 RT and %43 Metacritic scores and a middling 6.6 IMDb rating). Has this film enjoyed a recent renaissance or surge in popularity? Is there something in or about the film that has brought it to people’s attention recently (i.e. was it referenced recently in a popular contemporary show or podcast or something)? Is the high view total simply a product of fans pining for baseball w/the sport still on Covid lockdown? Sorry for the long winded post, but nearly a quarter of a million views in such a short time frame for a random clip from a seemingly forgotten 20 year old sports movie just struck me as… unusual and I was wondering if there was a specific reason.

  • I am so so extremely verklempt! Just finished the movie after not seeing it in years and I’m all stuffed up and red-eyed from crying LOL

  • Does anybody recognize the Yankees manager? That’s coach Augie Garrido………He’s one of college baseball’s greatest coaches. Coach Garrido has one over a thousand games in his career at two schools……Cal State Fullerton and the University of Texas.

  • I’m trying to remember who played this Matt Crane guy?
    I know he was a former MLB player and think he was the first batter in the history of the Florida Marlins in ‘93

  • 0:34 1:14 presumably presumably Kevin Costner’s real reaction 2 when Kelly Preston passed away, still in shock over her loss yet what a wonderful actress she was and always will be.

  • If any pitcher American League or National League ever perfects the Yankees in real life, I’ll be a happy person. If Billy Chapel was a real person he would be Hall of Fame bound for sure!

  • Does anyone else notice that the batter enters the game as #60, takes all his swings as #60, gets thrown out at first base as #60 but leaves the game as #61?

  • I love this film.
    As one of the most beautiful women ever Kelly’s ability as an actress can be overlooked because of her Wow factor but her performance in this film is perfection. So natural, the stuff of dreams. It is the way I will always remember her.
    Gone far too soon.
    May God Bless her and keep her in His loving embrace for evermore.

  • Tow truck driver & the guy in the bar, i wonder if it is the same guy.
    Just now literally realized they sound identical. Now i gotta pull the cast & see for myself.

  • somehow I’m thinking the New York tow truck driver does not give the Tiger pitcher a free tow and refuse the cash. Hall of Fame be damned. This movie is so bad it’s good.
