Sad to see that former MLB Player and All Star Bob Watson passed away. I do remember him as a player, but will always remember him for his line in The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training – One of the underrated and best baseball movies of all-time
Bob Watson – Hey c’mon, Let the kids play!
Watching this clip always makes me happy. Bad New Bears in Breaking Training is one of my all time favorite movies and this is one of my favorite scenes.
Bad News Bears in Breaking Training – IMDB
The movie also has two of my favorite characters (Jackie Earle Haley as Kelly Leak, and Chris Barnes as Tanner Boyle).
Note – If anybody has any contact information (or really any information) on Chris Barnes, please leave a comment or reach out to me – I would love to contact him and let him know how much the character of Tanner Boyle has meant to me over the past 40 years
