Hardball

Debuting in September 1989 (not too long after Lethal Weapon), Hardball was created by Robert Palm and starred John Ashton as Charlie “C.B.” Battles – a 45-year-old hard-nosed veteran cop who is given the option to either take a desk job or retire. The pilot episode “Till Death Us Do Part” deals with these events as we see an angry Battles dealing with this. Just before this happens though, he learns that an old girlfriend is about to testify against her criminal husband.

Then, to add to his anger, Battles is assigned a new 25 year old partner named Joe “Kaz” Kaczierowski (played by Richard Tyson) who is an outspoken hotshot who follows his own set of rules when upholding the law. The pair have to learn to work together and protect the girl as members of their protection detail are getting killed off.

The show ran for 18 episodes and also featured a guest cast that included John Pappas, Barney McFadden, Michael DeLano, John Carter, M.C. Gainey, Sean McCann, Jason Bernard, Gianni Russo, Rebecca Staab, Anthony LaPaglia, Bruce McGill, Don Stark, Floyd ‘Red Crow’ Westerman, Dirk Blocker, Andrew Divoff, Johnny Galecki, Paul Gleason, Wings Hauser, and Jimmie F. Skaggs.
