The Cincinnati Reds play in the MLB Field of Dreams Game on Thursday, but is “Field of Dreams” the greatest baseball movie ever?

That question is difficult to answer and likely depends on who you’re asking. Heck, some movie buffs may even dust off their actual baseball bats to defend their opinions. But while we can’t decide on the best film of all time, we still asked our readers to vote for their favorite baseball movies.

It proved to be a poll as divided as Reds and St. Louis Cardinals fans, but only one classic could receive the most votes.
