In the first episode of Walt Disney's two-part miniseries Moochie of the Little League, young Montgomery "Moochie" Morgan (Kevin Corcoran) spends his summer mornings delivering papers and his afternoons as a member of the Bobcats Little League team. Because of his diminutive size, he has spent most of the season on the bench but has been getting valuable pointers after each game from his dad (Russ Conway). Finally, Moochie gets his big chance to play in a crucial game -- just as word comes down that the Bobcats' baseball field is up for sale. Originally telecast as part of the Walt Disney Presents anthology, "A Diamond Is a Boy's Best Friend" and the next episode "Wrong Way Moochie" were later edited together and released theatrically in Europe as Little League Moochie.
