Watch ‘The Battered Bastards of Baseball’ On Netflix

Mark your calendars! This Friday on Netflix will be the premiere of Chapman and Maclain Way's documentary The Battered Bastards of Baseball.

Supported through the TFI/ESPN Prize, the film is a real-life Bad New Bears that recounts the history of the Portland Mavericks, an independent professional baseball team that broke attendance records in 1973 with a roster that included a blacklisted former Yankee pitcher, the sport's first female general manager and young movie star Kurt Russell, whose actor father Bing was the mad scientist owner of the team.

The film had an impressive world premiere at this year's Sundance Film Festival and has since been entertaining audiences around the country on the festival circuit. Now you can finally see it for yourself (or see it again).

Here's the trailer.
