In honor of the MLB's opening day, it's baseball week here on The Movie Seasons, and so our Movie of the Day series is back with appropriately related titles. We're starting with one of the very best of course, this 1988 classic starring Kevin Costner and Susan Sarandon in their prime. Costner is veteran catcher "Crash" Davis, who has to teach dumb rookie pitcher Tim Robbins everything he knows, even though Robbins has already got what Crash wants most, baseball groupie Sarandon, who's also teaching him everything she knows (in other areas). This is a great baseball movie brimming over with love for the sport, but also a steamy romance, as Costner and Sarandon have amazing chemistry and some of the sexiest scenes together from any movie. A perfect start to baseball week.
