You know actor Timothy Busfield from the baseball movies "Field of Dreams" and "Little Big League." And you know him from so many other roles in "Thirtysomething," "The West Wing," "Revenge of The Nerds" and more.

Now Busfield is a director for such shows as "This is Us" and "Law & Order: SVU." And he is also a huge baseball fan, which is why he is Sweeny’s guest on a brand new "30 With Murti."

Busfield talks about growing up a Tigers fan and attempting to play college baseball before going the theatre route. He also shares stories about some of his famous roles, including facing Randy Johnson for the climactic final scene in "Little Big League," playing White House reporter Danny Concannon on "The West Wing," and appearing in his first-ever screen role as the soldier who blew up Sgt. Hulka in "Stripes."

His latest on-screen turn is in the Fox drama "Almost Family," which premieres this fall.
