ABC will enter the cable-dominated TV terrain of such shows as "Pawn Stars" starting March 24 with the debut of "Ball Boys," a 12-episode, Saturday-afternoon, reality TV series set in Baltimore County at Robbie's 1st Base.
ABC announced the show on its portion of the TCA press tour in Los Angeles.
Here's an account from "Channel Guide" magazine:
Ball Boys comes from the producers of Pawn Stars and will follow the action at Robbie’s 1st Base in Baltimore, and the family-like relationships of the sports fanatics who work there, Robbie Sr. and Junior, Sweet Lou and Shaggy.
The 12 half-hour episodes will feature the negotiation of buying and selling unique sports merchandise, both at the store and at off-site locations. Additionally, sports stars — from Jim Brown to Pete Rose to Jalen Rose — will stop by the store to join in lively debates, talk smack and hang out with the staff.
