Former child actor David Pollock (50), who played one of the little league player’s,
Rudi Stein in the 1976 comedy film “Bad News Bears”, is taking a swing at politics
these days. He has entered into a Congressional race as a Democrat in California’s
26th Congressional district. Pollock’s political aspirations began in 1994 when he was asked to consider running for his local school board which he did successfully. He
was on the board for 15 years. David has said that he is “proud of getting away
from Hollywood while the getting was good”.
