Rowdy, good-natured comedy melodrama.

This is a friendly, no-account movie full of intermittent high spirits.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

It's hard to understand why this good-natured look at the old Negro Leagues didn't do better at the box office. The script is a fine mix of humor, pathos, and honest drama; the direction is brisk; and the photography and production design are first-rate.

Excellent performances, but the best thing about it is the sharp, sceptically witty script by Hal Barwood and Matthew Robbins.

Genial, slapdash, high-spirited and occasionally moving.

Bingo Long is fun, it's pleasant to watch, but it cakewalks too much on its way to the box office.

This isn't a great film by any means, but its heart is in the right place.

If you've seen Major League and The Bad News Bears at least five times apiece, this is a relatively forgotten little comedy that is definitely worth a look.
