The Brady Bunch: The Dropout Synopsis
Mike (Robert Reed) -- architect to the stars that he is -- is designing a house for Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Don Drysdale. He happens to mention to the baseball star that Greg (Barry Williams) is a baseball nut and would love to meet him. Drysdale shows up at the Brady house, watches Greg pitch, and nonchalantly suggests that Greg might one day be a pro-ball player himself. Taking the encouragement as a directive from God, Greg immediately begins obsessing over his future in the majors. Assuming his phenomenal athletic abilities will propel him to baseball stardom, he lets his grades slip. Unable to convince Greg that he might want to finish school, Mike gets Drysdale to show up again and counsel Greg about the many downsides of professional baseball.
