Baseball always has been the best sport for generating arguments, and that extends to movies about the sport.

In honor of Friday's release of "42," the biopic about Jackie Robinson, here are Neil Best's worst baseball movies of all time. Feel free to disagree.

1. The Babe Ruth Story (1948)

2. The Babe - starring John Goodman (pictured) (1992)

3. Headin' Home (1920)

4. Ed (1996)

5. The Bad News Bears Go to Japan (1978)
