We saw Ron Swanson try to coach a team of youth basketball on Parks and Recreation, soon we'll see him at the helm of the Rockford Peaches.

Amazon announced last year that Broad City's Abbi Jacobson would be co-creator of a new series on their streaming platform called A League of Their Own, a series based on the Penny Marshall movie that told the story of the Rockford Peaches.

It was just announced that Nick Offerman will be taking the role that Tom Hanks played in the movie as the coach and manager of the Rockford Peaches. It's not a direct reprisal of Hank's role as Jimmy Dugan, Offerman will be playing a coach named Casey "Dove" Porter.

HollywoodReporter - Dove is described as a former Cubs pitcher who is brought in to coach the Rockford Peaches. The character is most famous because his forkball killed a dove in mid-air in the middle of a game. Inspiring and charismatic, Dove was thought to be the next big Major League Baseball star, but blew his arm out after three years. Now he’s looking to make his comeback by making the Peaches into champions.

No word yet if Offerman's Dove will have the drinking problem or temper that Hanks' Dugan had in the original movie but Offerman will certainly chew up the scenery in the Amazon show as well as he does in everything else he does.

There is currently no release date for the Amazon series but you can read all about it here and watch a video that I'm not allowed to embed. Seriously watch it, it's pretty good.

In the meantime, relive some of the best moments of Tom Hank's Jimmy Dugan in the video below.
