I think Little League is wonderful. It keeps the kids out of the house.

I went over there, put my arm around him, and said, 'What are you crying for? When major league players lose, they don't cry.'
I had great, great times as a Little League coach.
People were talking about me quitting acting, and they would say, What about your creative juices? Coaching is creative, because you could take a kid who thought he wasn't any good and, within four minutes, change his mind. And I didn't have to wait six months for them to put music to it.
