Netflix original movie: THE BATTERED BASTARDS OF BASEBALL review @streamingfamily.com

reviewed by DAD

In a word, “Entertaining.”  This Netflix documentary delves into the world of a independently owned minor league baseball team in Portland, Oregon in the mid 1970’s.  Interesting fact is that the team was owned by the father of actor Kurt Russell (Tombstone and Escape from New York), Bing Russell.  This documentary does a wonderful job of embodying the baseball spirit as it tells the tale of how the little guy took on Major League Baseball.  Great for any sports fan’s entertainment, but doesn’t cross over into general audience amusement.  B
