The Battered Bastards of Baseball (2014)

148) The Battered Bastards of Baseball (2014)

A documentary on the legendary Portland Mavericks, an independent baseball team founded by actor Bing Russell that rocked the minor leagues in the 1970s.

7/10 – Very solid underdog documentary from Netflix here, and you don’t even have to like Baseball to enjoy it. There’s something very entertaining about a bunch of beer swilling, unkempt baseball players who end up sticking it to the big leagues, not to mention that camaraderie and community feel that was instilled in Portland as a result.

So many stories make up this much bigger story, but bottom line is, they just wanted to play Baseball, and it’s incredible how much came out of this little venture.
