Close-up: 'The Battered Bastards of Baseball'

The documentary The Battered Bastards of Baseball looks at the Portland Mavericks of the 1970s - the only independent ball team existing then. A Hollywood actor founded the team, staffed it with scruffy athletes who played for the fun of it, and went on to embarrass the Major Leagues. Rick Brough takes a Closeup view of this film.

Known for getting all the facts right, as well as his distinctive sign-off, Rick covered Summit County meetings and issues for 35 years on KPCW. He now heads the Friday Film Review team.
