This documentary focuses on the Portland Mavericks, the last successful independent minor league baseball franchise in the United States. During the 1970s, their owner, actor Bing Russell, pulled out all the stops to attract talent to Portland and to make baseball fun again, especially for players that were near the end of their careers. Always irreverent, Russell succeeded when everyone wanted him to fail, and he showed high-profile owners that baseball didn't have to be about the money.
