1, 2…5 Snacks You Need at Your Back in the Game Party

By Lindsey Antis Aug 28, 2013

This fall James Caan is back in primetime with his new hit comedy, Back in the Game.  Recently, Carla caught up with him at a baseball diamond to find out a little more about his character, Terry Gannon Sr.

Terry Gannon Sr. is a loving, caring and slightly eccentric grandfather and he isn’t afraid of sticking up for his grandson.

Whether or not his grandson believes this is necessary is another issue.

In honor of the show, and their great relationship, we pulled together our five favorite baseball snacks recipes.  

5. Popcorn Balls
