Netflix: The Battling Bastards of Baseball.

Really an interesting, entertaining documentary on Bing Russell and the Portland Mavericks, an OR baseball team he started in 1974. They were, at that time, the last truly independent baseball team playing in the US...all other minor league teams were farm teams for the ML clubs.

Bing was an actor and Kurt Russell's father. He played a sheriff on Bonanza, as well as many Westerns made in the 40s/50s. Lots of footage on this team and that era of minor league baseball. He took a collection of characters and ML has beens (Jim Bouton) and became a powerhouse team in the pacific Coast League.

Well worth the watch!
