2014 - THE BATTERED BASTARDS OF BASEBALL, an interesting little story about a minor league team.

Nice and short.  The true story of actor Kurt Russell's father Bing Russell a veteran character actor who ends up buying a minor league baseball team.

As several critics have pointed out this is a real Frank Capra story.  Bing Russell takes on the major league baseball owners while simultaneously putting together a motley crew of players who actually enjoy playing the game.

This film is short and sweet and is available for viewing on Netflix.  Highly entertaining with lots of old archival footage.

73 minutes.
