It's not exactly giving us all of the information. The Portland players weren't exactly some bums that showed up out of nowhere and magically started winning. A lot of the players were 24, 25, 26, 27... and had minor league experience whereas the other players in the "A" league were just out of high school. The Portland players were just not good enough to make the big leagues, but they were better that the 19 & 20 year old kids because they had WAY more experience.

The Battered Bastards of Baseball is one of baseball's last great, unheralded true stories. In 1973, Hollywood veteran Bing Russell (best known for playing Deputy Clem on "Bonanza") created the only independent baseball team in America at the time, the legendary Portland Mavericks.

Cool story Bro, except...Reviewed bymeverly-22986Vote: 6/10
This is the kind of film that makes you want to go to the ballpark and eat a sack of peanuts. I see a lot of minor league baseball as I go around the country and relate to the fan friendly experiences. Thoroughly enjoyed the story from beginning to end. Thumbs up on NFLX. 9 Stars IMDB.

Even for one as disinterested in baseball as me, this was an incredibly absorbing "David v. Goliath" tale of a man who followed his passion, reaped the benefits, & shared it with those who loved & respected him.
