President Gilcrest and his trophy wife are living in the White House, with their overachieving daughter sidetracked by pregnancy, a couch potato hopeless son, a genius young son, and an odd middle school girl.
Three estranged siblings are brought together once again at their father's funeral. His last will states that they must bond as a family via games thought up by their late father or they won't inherit the $23 million he has left them.
Centers on Terry Gannon, a recently divorced single mother who temporarily moves in with her estranged father, a beer-swilling former baseball player. She reluctantly starts coaching her son's underdog youth baseball team and is drawn back into the world of sports she vowed to leave behind. Written by
As a long-time baseball fan, I have been watching Back in the Game since it debuted and to me, it has the makings of a hit. It's the first sitcom about little league baseball since The Bad News Bears struck out on CBS in 1980.
What makes this show better than the show based on the movie series are the solid performances of Maggie Lawson, who ends up coaching her son's little league team and in his first sitcom role as her alcoholic father, James Caan. Caan seems to handle the sitcom format really well.
Let's not forget the actor who plays Lawson's son and the other members of The Angles. The add a lot to the show.
Back in the Game also reminds me of a boon i read when i was a youngster, The Year Mom Won the Pennant by Matt Christopher. Could Lawon's character lead The angles to the pennant? Watch this show. It hits a home run.
