Tired of the slave-like treatment of his team's owner, charismatic star Negro League pitcher Bingo Long takes to the road with his band of barnstormers through the small towns of the Midwest in the 1930's.
Bingo Long (Billy Dee Williams) was based slightly on the former Negro league, and Major League Baseball player and pitcher, Leroy "Satchel" Paige.
Leon Carter, All-Star:
I'm gonna wipe that ball so far they gotta hop on a train to catch it!
Bingo Long (P): I warn you Leon, this one gonna be a smoker!
A modern scooter and a modern convertible are visible in the distance during the fight between Bingo and Leon.
The movie begins with an older version of the Universal Studios logo, as part of the opening news reel.
