"Ball Boys" (ABC TV show) is a reality docu-series, from the producers of "Pawn Stars," that follows the sports memorabilia business at iconic Robbie's 1st Base in Baltimore, Maryland, and the charming family-like relationships of the sports fanatics who work there: Robbie Davis Sr. and Junior, Sweet Lou and Shaggy. Episodes will feature the negotiation of buying and selling unique sports merchandise, both at the store and at off-site locations. In addition, numerous sports legends — from football pioneer Jim Brown to baseball great Pete Rose to former NBA star and current ESPN commentator Jalen Rose — stop by the store to join in lively debates, smack talk and comical antics with the staff.

More than just a sports shop, Robbie's 1st Base is like an old school hometown barbershop where everyone has an opinion and is eager to share their stories and love of the game. Touching on the unique capability of sports to bring people together, "Ball Boys" tells the intriguing stories beyond the action on the field — using the symbolic value of the merchandise changing hands to represent a rare and valuable social bond uniting individuals across all ages, races, genders and economic classes. Never before seen on a broadcast network, both the collectors and the merely curious come to the store from far and wide to experience a shared affinity for the great stories of sport. And when the situation calls, the staff hits the road to buy and sell prized artifacts with some of the top collectors in the nation.
