It transcends the game and is a charming anti-establishment yarn that should delight audiences who don't even know an r.b.i. from a balk."[14]

[15]Katie Walsh of Indiewire graded the film B+ by saying that "The Batterered Bastards of Baseball is an entertaining celebration of the independent spirit and the love of the game."[16]
