Jimbo Weir and the Battered Bastards of Baseball

  • Written by Karin Hopper

One great thing about Woodinville Softball is hanging out with Jimbo Weir. Back in the day, he played minor league baseball for the San Francisco Giants organization. Later, he led the Lady Falcons to two State Championships, and gained national attention when his girls beat a Kingco opponent 64-0. (That’s a story unto itself – to be explored in a future article).

A few weeks ago, Jimbo was at the Woodinville-Redmond game at Hartman Park. His daughter Dani now coaches his former club. He’s often on hand to cheer the team on.

Jimbo and I got into a discussion about baseball documentaries. He asked if I’d ever heard of the Portland Mavericks. I shrugged and said no. He began talking about a film that was so good he’d watched it three times in less than a week. It was about an independent minor league team in the 1970s that included players such as legendary actor Kurt Russell and bestselling author Jim Bouton. Jimbo was jumping out of his skin with excitement as he described the film. He said it was called The Battered Bastards of Baseball.
