I really did not expect to like this show. I wasn't quite in the mood for a fish out of water comedy, felt the plot was derivative of Major League, and was not amused by the idea of the protagonist making an ass out of himself in cringe-worthy ways every episode.
But by the fourth episode I was absolutely hooked. This show does not go in the direction you expect it to, and ultimately it's something like a comedy version of Friday Night Lights, replete with characters you grow to care about and enjoy seeing with one another.
Highly recommended. Jason Sudeikas does amazing work, but the entire cast is killing it.
