Clubhouse is an American drama television series starring Jeremy Sumpter, Dean Cain, Christopher Lloyd, Mare Winningham and Kirsten Storms. The theme song is "Our Lives" by The Calling.

Five episodes were broadcast on CBS in fall 2004. CBS broadcast both the high-definition and analog program through its affiliates. The five episodes that aired on CBS, along with six additional episodes that were not broadcast over CBS's airwaves, were picked up by HDNet in June 2005.[1] Universal HD began rerunning the series in late 2009.

Premise[edit]

The series is about a boy who gets his dream job working as a batboy for his favorite major-league baseball team, the fictional New York Empires. Throughout the story, 16-year-old Pete Young (played by Sumpter) goes through normal and not so normal problems of a teenager. Pete's sister (played by Storms) is a rebellious teen who deals with drinking, sex, and drugs.

The show is based on the experiences of Matthew McGough, a batboy for the New York Yankees who graduated from Williams College and Fordham University School of Law, and lives in New York City. His book Bat Boy: Coming of Age with the New York Yankees was published by Doubleday in 2005. ISBN 978-0-307-27864-7
