'Bad News Bears' Kid Runs For Congress
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
And candidates for Congress and Senate are also making preparations for 2012. That includes a former member of "The Bad News Bears." David Pollock played one of the kids in that 1970s movie. Now he says he's running for Congress as a Democrat from here in California. His website says that over the years David Pollock has worked at a division of Boeing and served as a local elected official. But, of course, many people will remember him as Rudy Stein, the nervous kid with glasses who got on base by intentionally getting hit with a pitch. And in fairness, you could think of worse ways to prepare for today's United States Congress.
