Friday 5: Sam Fuld's Favorite Superhero Movies

Earlier this season, the Tampa Bay Rays held “Cape Day” in honor of their leftfielder Sam Fuld.

And yeah, when you’re a guy who has been called “Sammy Ballgame”, “Super Sam” or even “Superman”…a cape day seems completely appropriate.

So what does “Super Sam” do on an off day?

Well, Thursday night, he went out, saw a movie and did what most people do…tweeted about it.

Saw X-Men instead, liked it a lot. Then again, I don't ever get to movies anymore, so pretty sure would've liked anything on the big screen

I wasn’t surprised that the Rays cult figure went out and saw a superhero movie. It’s rather fitting…don’t you think?

Given his pick, I had to know…what are Sam Fuld’s five favorite superhero movies? So I did what anyone would do...I reached out to the dude.

And here is how he responsed.

1. Batman Begins (2005, directed by Christopher Nolan)

2. X-Men (2000, directed by Bryan Singer)

3. Dark Knight (2008, directed by Christopher Nolan)

4. Spiderman 2 (2004, directed by Sam Raimi)

5. The Incredibles (2004, directed by Brad Bird)

A pretty good list…and especially one that you would expect from “The Legend of Sam Fuld”.  What do you think of Fuld's list? Do you agree...disagree?  Let us know in the comments!

Yup. All relatively new movies on that list. Just as I expected. Seems young people today don't care at all about films that came out before they were even born. I doubt Fuld has even seen the Christopher Reeve "Superman" movie, for example.

I've heard of the man of coarse, he plays outfield for Tampa Bay Rays, but what's a the hubbub about? I had to do some research...

Does great interview - and great catches - and self effacing too! Yay! I'm a fan. This is what got me:
