netf1ix original documentary the Battered Bastards of Baseball is about Portland's single-A team the Portland Maverics in the mid-1970's. I saw most of their games and collected all their autographs on my mitt. Kurt Russell was on the team and his father was the owner, that was news, but either I wasn't aware of them being any kind of sensation or I have forgotten. My memory had it that they usually played in the rain to an almost empty stadium and lost most games. Guess I was a cynical, glass-half-empty kind of kid.
