The Battered Bastards of Baseball

This doco is about the Portland Mavericks, a defunct minor league baseball team in the 1970s owned by Kurt’s Dad Bing Russel. Kurt even played for them at one stage. Bing was an actor (Deputy Clem Foster in Bonanza), but he loved baseball even more.

It’s an absolutely crazy story about a Hollywood actor buying a failing baseball team and making them winners, then getting stung by the baseball hierarchy then him in turn, sticking it to them. Pretty unbelievable the whole thing. The 70s looked great!

Hollywood movie is on it’s way.
