Storyline

In the first episode pitcher Jim Bouton informed his teammates and coaches that he was going to write a series of articles on baseball life "off the field." Manager Capogrosso and most of the others were not very keen on the idea Ball Four was based on a book of the same title by former major league pitcher Jim Bouton. Written by Josh Brown (and the BBV crew)
