Plot Synopsis

Host Bob Costas takes an in-depth look at movies about baseball, featuring interviews with the actors, actresses and directors who helped make these films special. After each 30-minute episode of COSTAS AT THE MOVIES, MLB Network immediately aired the film being discussed in that program. The baseball films include: COBB, as Tommy Lee Jones and director Ron Shelton discuss the 1994 biopic about Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Ty Cobb; BAD NEW BEARS, featuring an interview with actress Tatum O'Neal discussing her role as the team's star pitcher, Amanda Whurlizer; A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN, with director Penny Marshall and Geena Davis, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her portrayal of fictional catcher Dottie Hinson; EIGHT MEN OUT, during which director John Sayles discusses the 1988 motion picture about the 1919 Chicago White Sox and the eight members of the team who were banned from baseball after allegedly throwing the World Series; and THE NATURAL, as director Barry Levinson joining Costas to discuss the mythical tale of Roy Hobbs in his film.
