A Great Sitcom That Was Never Given A Chance To Become Popular.
Jack Warden, one of our great character actors, plays Morris Buttermaker, a pool cleaner who loses his temper and drives a customer's car into same. A judge gives him a choice of jail or the chance to manage a junior high school's baseball team. Warden takes the job but soon realizes that jail might have been a better choice. This team had some great characters, not the least of which was a very young Corey Feldman. They were loveable and endearing and you cared about all of them. Why wasn't it given more time to catch on? I have no idea, but I'm sorry that it didn't get that chance. This TV version was better than the movie in my opinion. Not enough episodes were made for it to have a chance in reruns. "Bad News"
