The Baseball Bunch was a great show from the early 80's. I don't remember when it was on but I watched it all the time. I would have been 5 when it first went on the air. Johnny Bench's retirement was my first brush with mortality. One episode dealt with that.
Johnny would lead the bunch, all kids, through baseball drills that would be constantly ruined by the San Diego Chicken....THE mascot of ALL mascots! Every episode would have a special guest star. Tommy Lasorda and Ted Williams made appearances, and I believe that Gary Carter made one in his red white and blue Montreal Expos uniform.
I haven't seen this show in 20 years, but I have great memories of it.
I don't know if it is available on VHS/DVD. It would make a great nostalgia gift for those 20-30 year old baseball nuts out there. Also it would make a great gift for those who want their children to see this. Johnny Bench was a class act, and the Chicken is always funny.
