  • The Bad News Bears in Breaking Training is the 1977 sequel to the feature film The Bad News Bears. This film picks up the Bears' career a year after their infamous second-place finish in the North Valley League. However, after winning this year, they are left reeling by the departure of Buttermaker as their coach and an injury to goat-turned-hero Timmy Lupus. Faced with a chance to play the Houston Toros for a shot at the Japanese champs, they devise a way to get to Houston to play at the famed Astrodome. In the process, Kelly Leak reunites with his estranged father, who is ultimately recruited to coach them. It also stars Chris Barnes, who returns to his role as the foul-mouthed Tanner Boyle, and Jimmy Baio as pitcher Carmen Ronzonni. This film is remembered for the scene in which Coach Leak leads the Astrodome crowd in the chant "Let them play!" when the umpires attempt to call the game prematurely because of time constraints, the crowd at the 2002 Major League Baseball All-Star Game also used this chant when the announcement came that the game would end in a tie at the end of the inning if neither team scored.
