Like last week's LOVE MONKEY, CLUBHOUSE was barely there, airing eleven episodes in 2004 and 2005. It was about a kid who gets to live out his dream of being a batboy for a major league baseball team. Christopher Lloyd was well-cast as the grumpy old manager, Dean Cain was an aging ballplayer, Mare Winningham was the kid's mother, and young British actor Jeremy Sumpter (who was later on another sports series, FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS) played the lead. You know I'm a sucker for baseball yarns, so I enjoyed this series.
