Saying goodbye to ‘Parks and Recreation,’ network TV’s biggest baseball fan

After seven seasons in professional television, NBC sitcom “Parks and Recreation” has retired. Boasting a career average that would make even Ted Williams envious, the show’s final outing aired on Tuesday night. MLB fans everywhere should be a little sorry to see it go, because no sitcom on television was as big a baseball fan as “Parks and Rec.”

Farewell to the law firm of Fwar, Dips, Winshares, Gritt, Nelsson, Woba, Fraplus, Zswing, Range-Factor, Heart, Babip, Pecota, Vorp & Eckstein, LLC.

MLBN Launching Original Documentary Series

Later today MLB Network will announce a new series, MLB Network Presents, that aims to tell some of these rich stories from the national pastime.  Bob Costas himself will host the series that premieres on Tuesday night January 13th at 9 PM ET.

The debut episode in the personality-driven series is entitled The Odd Couple: Bochy & Flannery and chronicles the long-time relationship between San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy and 3rd base coach that dates back to when they were Padres teammates in 1983.
