Owner Bio

Former child actor and five-time Star Search Champion (spokesmodel category) Chris Shue took a somewhat unconventional route to his current position as GM and Owner-for-Life of the Virginia Baseball Woodchucks. Penniless and pantsless at age 9, Chris was hawking fresh-baked mini-cheesecakes on the inner-city streets when he was discovered by famed talent scout Irving "Swifty" Lazar.

Numerous commercials (including Magic Shell dessert topping and Aerobicize Ken Doll with interchangeable head bands) and magazine covers (like Teen Beat) later Chris was a washed-up 15-year-old freebasing Robitussin and abusing Skoal Bandits like the world was going to end in a big ball of flaming agony (read: badly and soon). Thanks to helping hands from fellow addicts Corey Feldman and Adam Rich, Shue was able to stop having sex with middle-aged married men for drugs and money (metaphorically speaking, of course.)

Squeaky clean and high on nothing more than Diet Coke and Aromatherapy, Chris saved his residuals from the first season of Head of the Class (he played quirky Orthodox jokester "Steinberg") until he had a huge pickle jar full of quarters and nickels. When he heard through the rehab grapevine that FOBL was selling franchises, he jumped at the chance for ownership. The rest, as they say, is scrumtrulecent.

Located in downtown Alexandria, Virginia, the famed Baseball Woodchucks play an exciting brand of baseball in an A-List Stadium. In fact, The Tater Farm is known more for who is hangin' in the Owner's Box than for the champion dongers on the field. Hollywood royalty Ashley Hamilton and Jaleel White are just a few of the regular visitors. And true to his show-biz roots, Shue places a high premium on between-inning entertainment. To whit: on any given night hall-of-fame comediennes Paula Poundstone and Rita Rudner can be counted on to keep all the celebs and fans at the park in stitches. Don't get them started! Don't EVEN get them started! Even funnier is the now famous tradition of the team owner attending the game SANS PANTS.

"Coming to the game without pants on keeps me grounded," reflected Shue in a recent interview, "Guys like Arsenio and Mesach tell me all the time that my pantsless appearances bridge the gap between black and white...rich and poor. And to be honest, I have one thing to say to those guys."

"Whatever it takes."
