Mort Sherwin, a friend of Sam's, is looking for someone to manage his son's baseball team. The Coach offers to do it, which Sam thinks is a great idea. Diane however doesn't as Coach has never been in charge and she thinks the cutthroat nature of baseball will eat him alive. Both Sam and Diane are wrong: the Coach ends up being a tough as nails manager who works the kids like it's a major league team - all work, no fun and discipline through ridicule. But at least the team is winning. Sam and Diane try and talk him into taking a softer approach, but to no avail. But in the end, is winning everything? Elsewhere in the bar, Cliff offers to lend out-of-work Norm some money, never thinking that he'd accept, and Carla brings in her newborn baby, Lucia, to the bar to breastfeed her. Written by

I spend half my time trying to keep this bar on its feet, and the other half trying to keep Diane off hers.
