Parte Dos: Los Peliculas Beisbol Favoritos de Jaime Scotto (Jimmy Scott's Favorite Baseball Movies, Parte Dos)
I don't just like baseball movies. But this site isn't about my love for Goonies II. It's about baseball and the lives of baseball players and the freakshows that surround us/them. I mentioned how much I liked Bull Durham yesterday. Another favorite baseball movie I love (redundant, since "favorite" modifies "love" - baseball historians/college English professors please correct me if I was wrong there) is The Bad News Bears - the original 1976 version starring Walter Matthau.
But first, did you know, or remember, that the Bad News Bears was a TV show? I did not. Here's the intro. Simply awful:
Note it looks like Englebert is now "Engleberg." And did you see one of the Coreys was in the cast? I always did like Jack Warden, who appeared to play the part of Buttermaker. I just now saw the Mr. Warden died two years ago. I somehow like him more now.
Anypoop, I looked for a clip from the original movie. None available reached the standards I have set for this site, which are quite low as you have seen by now. So here's a clip from the remake, released in 2005. Try to enjoy:
