Where are the baseball TV shows for kids these days? When I was younger we could get up and watch the Baseball Bunch. Remember that show?
We got to learn from Johnny Bench and Tommy Lasorda and were entertained by the San Diego Chicken. Throw in some big name guest stars of the day, and it was such a great show.
It was the perfect bled of entertainment and instruction. There is such a push these days to get more kids interested in the sport these days, so why not create a show similar to this one.
Or are the kids of today needing something more hip and interactive? I’m not sure. But I do know that the Baseball Bunch was a great show.
I think I would even watch it today if it came on.
Was there a baseball themed show you liked as a kid?
