Ready for SXSW? As the festival gears up for its kickoff tomorrow, Cinematical is happy to premiere a peek at Austin native Berndt Mader's first feature film, 'Five Time Champion.' Ryan Akin stars as Julius, a young scientist in the middle of a whirlwind of personal turmoil. His father isn't around, his mother and grandfather could be involved in affairs and his girlfriend is flirting with a rival. When an experiment involving earthworms fails, he becomes overwhelmed with life and sets out on a quest to meet his father.

But the following clip is free of all that coming-of-age turmoil. Instead, Julius gets in trouble for a fight, and gets a lecture rife with baseballs and chewing tobacco. Check it out after the jump.
