The Bad News Bears (1976)

Say "Thanks" by giving a rating

The Bad News Bears is the improbable story of a group of misfit little league baseball players, led by a drunken ex-triple A baseball player (Walter Matthau). 

Beyond all odds, the Bears make a comeback in their season, led on the field by a girl-pitcher and a cigarette smoking hustler.

The movie is filled with humor, mostly off-color, which, to me, makes it all the more entertaining with the language coming from kids.

RECOMMENDATION

One of my favorite baseball movies. If you haven't seen The Bad News Bears, it makes my must-watch list.
