T-Ball is the 20th episode of Season 2, and is episode 42 of the full 210 episodes for the entire series. In this episode, Debra has an on-going battle with the kids' coach, and Ray tries to make everything right.

Episode InformationEdit


It's Ray and Debra's turn to bring snacks for Ally's T-Ball team this week, a team that is sponsored by Nemo's Pizza. But when they put out the pretzels and the Hawaiian Punch, the team's coach, Bryan Trenberth isn't happy because they didn't follow the teams "approved snack list".

Later, at home, Ray and Debra get into an argument about the team snacks. Ray wants to follow the coach's list, but Debra doesn't...and is angry that Ray doesn't back her up on the issue.

So when the next game rolls around, Ray secretly brings an "approved snack" behind Debra's back.

Running GagsEdit

As in some other episodes, one of the characters (Debra) asks Ray why everybody has to like him.

Frank mentions his time in Korea.


In this episode, "Greenberg" is mentioned as one of the people watching the T-Ball game. It's unclear whether or not it's Dr. Greenberg who is mentioned in the Season 9 episode "Boys' Therapy".


  • Ray: (after Debra destroys it) "That was the list."

Debra says to Ray after his meltdown at the t-ball game: Greenberg has it on tape “ too hot for t-ball “!!
