Take Me out of the Ball Game is the 59th episode of King of the Hill. It was first aired on May 11, 1999. The episode was written by Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland, and directed by Chris Moeller.


Hank is picked to coach Strickland Propane's softball team, causing friction with pitcher Peggy. While Hank wants nothing more than to be the ultimate coach, do the best job possible and lead the team to victory, his condescending demeanor towards Peggy herself throws her off her game. Although she practically single-handedly is responsible for the team's success, she begins to lose her stuff when Hank feels threatened by her undermining his status as her husband and puts her down.

Meanwhile Bobby tries Girl Scout Cookies, hates them and attempts to sell his own--igniting a war between him and the Girl Scouts, which include the girl who could be his beloved.




  • In this episode Connie and Bobby officially begin dating when Connie proclaims Bobby her boyfriend after tasting his butter cookies. They had previously kissed and hinted at crushing on each other but had yet to make anything official.


  • Softball is played on all dirt infields, not all grass. There is no pitcher's mound in softball, just a pitcher's circle. All co-ed leagues are slow-pitch, not fast-pitch.
  • The man keeping track of Peggy's strikeouts during the Jugstore Cowboys game is using the wrong "K." When someone strikes out looking (without swinging), it is denoted by a backwards "K."
