Busfield in ‘League’ lead

Former “thirtysomething” star and Sacramento Smokeys junkball pitcher Timothy Busfield has been cast as the male lead in Columbia Pictures “Little Big League, ” sources said Tuesday.

Set to start production on Monday with Andrew Scheinman as director, “Little Big League” will feature Busfield as an all-star first baseman for the Minnesota Twins.

The pic is about a 12-year-old boy who inherits his grandfather’s baseball team.

Busfield has worked hard to establish himself as a working actor with baseball acumen, including a two-year stint on the pitching staff of the semipro Sacramento Smokeys baseball club and a recent turn as color commentator of an Angels game on Prime Ticket.

As previously reported, former minor league pitcher Scott Patterson, Jonathan Silverman, Brad Johnson and Jason Robards already have been cast in “Little Big League,” which will be produced by Castle Rock Entertainment.
