In hopes of competing in the Negro National League, an African-American baseball star puts together his own highly theatrical team. (Josiah Howard, "Blaxploitation Cinema: The Essential Reference Guide.")

- Debut theatrical feature film of Director 约翰·班德汉姆.
- Bingo Long was based slightly on Leroy "Satchel" Paige, the Negro league and Major League Baseball player and pitcher.
- 史蒂文·斯皮尔伯格 was initially very interested in directing, but the success of 大白鲨 (1975) meant he was able to get any project of his own off the ground, and decided instead to make 第三类接触 (1977).
