Bad News Bears Actor Running For Congress: Baseball Is 'A Good Analogy' For...

David Pollock, endearingly known to movie fans as “Rudi Stein” from The Bad News Bears, announced in August that he was running for Congress as a Democrat in California’s 26th District. On Friday, he stopped by MSNBC for an interview with Thomas Roberts.

Roberts asked Pollock about his early career in acting, followed by time as a financial analyst and member of city council and the president of the California School Boards Association. “Explain why your understory might be one that’s going to resonate with the voters in this new 26th District,”

Pollock said that the baseball analogy analogy he’s been using — to demonstrate the “uneven playing field” between the corporations and the middle class — has been received very well by the public.

“They understand the middle class has gotten a raw deal in all of this, and it’s time to start fighting back,” Pollock said, “Baseball proved to be a good analogy for doing that.”
