Updated – (3-23-20) Hey ESPN look what Max Preps ranked the Final Season this spring? #8 Best Movie…two years ago you didn’t rank it.

8. “The Final Season”
Release Year: 2007
Why Watch: This is a feel-good high school baseball movie based on a true story. The school is about to shut down and the baseball team has one final season of play. The boys are without their legendary coach and must lean on new coach Kent Stock (Sean Astin). This is one of those movies that makes me remember why I love high school sports.
