Sam dropped out of high school in favor of his potential baseball career. He became a relief pitcher for the Major League Baseball team, Boston Red Sox, in which he met Coach Ernie Pantusso (Nicholas Colasanto). His baseball career took a nosedive when he developed an alcohol problem. Sam has run the bar, Cheers, for five years when the series Cheers began in 1982 after his baseball career was over. Over time, his role as a bartender turned him into the "resident ringleader for an assortment of poor souls and wanna-bes." He has a highly successful brother, Derek, who is an unseen character, voiced by George Ball, and with whom he barely gets along.
