Film featured: The Battered Bastards of Baseball
Directed by Chapman Way and Maclain Way
73 min., color, U.S.A.,2014 Sundance Film Festival Official Selection

When Portland, Oregon, lost its longtime minor-league affiliate, Bing Russell—who briefly played ball professionally before enjoying a successful Hollywood acting career—bought the territory and formed a single-A team to operate outside the confines of major-league baseball. When they took the field in 1973, the Mavericks—the only independent team in America—started with two strikes against them. What did Deputy Clem from Bonanza know about baseball? Or Portland, for that matter? The only thing uniting his players, recruited at open tryouts, was that no other team wanted them. Skeptics agreed that it could never work.

Come early! Filmmaker Maclain Way to attend and participate in a guided, pre-screening discussion.
