    Baseball movie guys...

    Need some opinions. I'm looking for some split canvas prints of baseball movies but they are hard to find, so I have found someone to print some on Etsy. I'm thinking the 42 print should be in a 4 canvas split? And I don't like The Field of Dreams as much as I thought I would. Maybe the "catch with dad scene?"....Later I'll probably do two of The Sandlot and Major League where they call the shot. Any other or better suggestions?

    Not exactly sure what you're looking for, but just wanted to mention, in case it is at all helpful, that Eight Men Out, directed by legendary indie director, John Sayles, is by far my favorite Baseball movie ever.

    Lots of great images and acting in that film, FWIW.

    Krank, I love these split canvas prints. Google split canvas prints and you will see some neat stuff. I plan on putting some baseball movie prints like those above in my theater room that I am building. I hopefully have a guy coming to finish the room over Christmas break...hopefully...on a side note, why is it so hard to get people to come work?

    Just out of curiosity and/or to be more clear for my slow mind...

    KW, you are more interested in Baseball movie prints, as opposed to actual old school Baseball photos used as prints, due to a specific passion for Baseball movies, per se?

    ...or is it because the actual photos of actual players/scenes are that hard to get, at least the ones you want, in order to make them into prints?

    Krank, if your mind is slow, mine is moving backwards...

    Baseball is my favorite sport. Baseball movies are my favorite movies. It is going in a theater room. So baseball movies just seem fitting.

    Also, finding split canvas baseball movies is difficult as well as finding really high resolution images to print this large. So I'm trying to do my own.

    I've debated on real baseball stuff, super hero, and UK themes. But I think I will be the happiest if I can pull off some baseball movie stuff.

    Very cool, KW.

    I have enough geeky passion for a number of things to conceptualize something like you're doing.

    Unfortunately, I am completely ill equipped to advise you on the how to's or where to go's on something like this.

    I recently ordered four beautiful art prints made by this bad ass Argentinian artist, each made as tribute to individual episodes of my fave TV show, Twin Peaks, through a company, Society 6, whose website promotes indie artist work, but I have no idea if they deal with images from movies, specifically.

    Hey, who knows? Maybe they have links to links to what you're looking for. Sounds like you've done a lot of searching already though.

    Good luck in any event.

    See if you can find pics of Kentucky v North Carolina South with Sean Hjelle on the mound with the crowd singing Sweet Caroline. Man, that was a great night.

    Catfan, I need to work the Bad News Bears in there someplace for sure.

    Catman, I've thought about the knocking out the lights scene.

    By the way, my favorite of yours may be the Field of Dreams scene. Wow, that gave me chills (in a good way) when watching it.

    Re: Baseball movie guys...

    I think this pic is cool, but the movie didn't knock my socks off like it did a lot of people. Good movie, just not at the very top of my list like it is with other folks.

    May want more scenery than just one guy, but this pic of Charlie Sheen--young star then, in 8 Men Out, is a classic.

    Better one.

    Re: Baseball movie guys...

    I'm tired, took a quick look but couldn't find anything specific--but I'm not doing my local town right by not including a photo with Rickwood Field in it. I think it would be cool for your room. Rickwood Field was featured in the movies Cobb (buddy of mine "starred" as the Umpire in that movie), Soul of the Game, and 42: The Jackie Robinson Story.

    Can't tie these to specific movies, but both at Rickwood Field.

    Sleep much last night?

    A scene from Major League will make it on the wall for sure. I did not realize until recently that that Charlie Sheen was in 8 Men Out. I have not watched that in a long while.

    I really like the Field of Dreams one, personally.

    You might think about The Natural, too--the scene at the end where (spoiler alert, if you can have a spoiler alert for a movie that's 30+ years old) he hit the home run and the lights are sparking (sorry for the large size, this is the only one I could find offhand):

    All I did was stand up to a long laundry list of people who passed away today who couldn't stand up because what was done was wrong.--RP, 8/26/09

    Re: Baseball movie guys...

    One of my favorite baseball movies that absolutely no one else likes is The Scout with Albert Brooks and Brendan Frasier. I don't have a picture but there's this one scene of the game where Brooks first discovers him that's part baseball game and part cockfight. Hilarious.

    I think I saw every hour on the clock. I might not have seen 3 a.m., but I know I saw 2, 4, 5 and got up at 6. Tough night.

    Major League was such a "fun" one. I go back and forth on how much I really like Field of Dreams as a pure baseball movie, but your pic is just a terrific one. Love the ideas you have. Good luck with it; when you finish, I'd love to see all of the finished products.

    Catfan...we really need to talk about The Scout...

    Darrell, the room will be mostly done after Christmas if my guy shows up. This will be the 3rd person I have had coming. If he doesn't come. I guess I'll try to do it but this is probably above my skill set....

    That's what I was thinking. The shot where the baseball is leaving the park and the lights are blowing out would look good.

    Also, Kevin Costner in "For the Love of the Game" would have some images that would make great quad prints.
