Storyline

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 Huggo

Manager Coach (#2.8)
10 April 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A baseball team of young boys is looking for somebody to coach them and the Coach of course volunteers. Diane is skeptical about him doing it and she turns out to be right as Coach turns out to be a very obsessive and angry guy with the. The boys want to quit the team and he tells them a story about his childhood when he still is angry with the guy who taught him. Then he realizes that he is doing the same to them now too and changes his attitude.

A funny episode. The fun part is to see the Coach who is always such a lovable guy become so mean. It is a great acting on his part to show the different sides of the personality.
