The Pioneers is a baseball team that struggles to stay out of last place, annoying crusty owner Mitzi . Happy is the team manager which includes new pitcher Dave, egotistical Frank, and Arnold, the debonair 2nd baseman.
I remember something about John Caponera demanding more money per episode. NBC had just plugged the show by airing an episode after the Super Bowl, and people liked the show. Unfortunately, air-times were changed, and I got the impression that when NBC heard Caponera's demands, they were like "you're not all that", and rewarded him with a cancellation.
I'm surprised nobody mentioned Justin Berfield who went on to star in "Unhappily Ever After" and "Malcolm In The Middle". I never saw Jake Patella after that series, and barely saw Eve Gordon.
I'll be first on the list if they ever release this show on DVD. I think I have one episode on tape, the Marry Lou Murray episode. "Ahh, we'll always have tape."
