Kurt Russell is probably the most established personalities in the acting business with his prominence on the 1980s and 1990s. He became renowned for portraying strong-willed, radical figures including Jack Burton in “Big Trouble in Little China” and Snake Plissken in “Escape in New York”. These are just a few of the massive acting roles he performed over his acting profession. Yet, right before he even became an actor, he was a baseball player. This is the cornerstone of a new documentary entitled “The Battered Bastards of Baseball”.
In 1973, Bing Russell began a small baseball company. He called the team Portland Mavericks. In the early years of the team, he began to employ individuals who had been rejected by other teams. So, underdogs were by his sides. The team got successful in its own individual ways, and also gone influential in the professional baseball. Through this, Bing’s grandsons, Kurt Russell’s nephews, produced a documentary according to the life of being a baseball player in Portland Mavericks team. “The Battered Bastards of Baseball” got good feedbacks from Sundance Film Festival.
Kurt Russell also showed up on the documentary. He played as one of the players and the vice-president of his father’s team. A movie is about to be created, TG Daily confirms. Probably, Russell will sign up for the acting audition to depict as himself or his dad.
