After reading the pilot script The Major League Baseball Corporation and The New York Yankees team declined a request for a cooperative licensing arrangement that would have allowed the series to use established team names and locations. "There were particular elements we weren't comfortable being associated with," MLB spokesman Carmine Tiso said. This necessitated the creation of fictional leagues, teams, and stadiums. The show was also forced after filming the pilot to quickly abandon the pinstripes on the Empire uniforms as they were too similar to the Yankees. The pinstripes were even digitally erased from promos for the series premiere. See more »

Ever since I discovered Jeremy Sumpter was the star of 'Clubhouse' I was hooked. I was excited for the premier, and it was amazing. I discovered that Jeremy isn't just super hot, but hes an amazing actor, too. He makes his character completely realistic and I love his facial expressions. When he was crying in the pilot, I cried too. The rest of the cast is amazing, too. Kirsten Storms' character; Betsy, adds humor to the show with her drinking problem and disregard for the rules. The only thing that annoyed be about the first two episodes, was how similar they were. In both, Pete was put in a situation where he has to decide whether to help the team, and possibly get in trouble, or stay out of it and become hated by them. If the show continues like this, I can see the ratings going down. Overall, Clubhouse is a great original show for everyone, its definitely different from the typical teen dramas. From the die-hard baseball fans, to the squealing fangirls, Clubhouse can be enjoyed by all.
