THE BATTERED BASTARDS OF BASEBALL
Sports, Documentary, New York, NY Director(s), TFI Supported, First Time Filmmaker
Bing Russell is best known for his role as Deputy Clem on Bonanza, but he left Hollywood in 1973 to pursue his first love: baseball. Creating the independent Portland Mavericks, his ragtag roster of players that major franchises rejected were baseball’s biggest joke. Then they shattered expectations and turned Major League Baseball on its heels in an unheralded story of spirit and rebellion.
