Synopsis

First of a trilogy of films takes an unflinching look at the little league baseball in California. Former minor leaguer Morris Buttermaker is a lazy, beer swilling swimming pool cleaner who takes money to coach the Bears, a bunch of disheveled misfits who have little talent. Realizing his dilemma, Buttermaker brings aboard girl pitching ace Amanda Whurlizer, the daughter of a former girlfriend, and Kelly Leak, a motorcycle punk who happens to be the best player around.

First saw this in the early 70'S. Loved it then and still enjoy watching it. The original is still the only one to watch.

Here's a tidbit: Bret Marx is the grandson of Harpo Marx! I love this movie, I watch it every chance I get! My favorite character is, of course, the very sassy Tanner, played very well by Chris Barnes! I also liked Brandon Cruz, he made a good opposite for Barnes. If you like Chris Barnes, try movie short, "Big Henry and the Pock A Dot Kid!" Chris co-stars opposite Barry Corbin as Big Henry!
