All three of us love baseball. When I heard about the film “The Battered Bastards of Baseball” I knew I had to see it. I knew Kurt Russell was involved and that’s about all I knew. Being a fan of baseball and a fan of Kurt Russell I had to check this movie out. I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into. I love baseball and lately it feels like we figured out the game of baseball. It’s been conquered by saber-metrics. While I’ve become fascinated by the statistical side of the game I had forgotten why I fell in love with baseball in the first place. It’s stories like this. There is something magical about baseball. To this day things happen in a baseball game that nobody has ever seen before. This movie tells a magical story about low level professional baseball. This story is interesting, entertaining and more than anything else captures the essence of baseball better than most baseball movies.
