The Bad News Bears In Breaking Training is the 1977 sequel to the feature film The Bad News Bears.

This movie 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 (Quinn Smith). Faced with a chance to play the Houston Toros for a shot at the Japanese champs, they devise a way to get to Texasmarker to play at the famed Astrodomemarker. In the process, Kelly Leak (Jackie Earle Haley) reunites with his estranged father (William Devane), 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 movie is most-famously 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.
