Storyline

A dalmatian puppy follows Cliff on his mail route, the pup which he names Spotty. Woody is immediately taken with Spotty. Well maintained, Spotty obviously is a lost pet, but Woody wants to keep him. Woody does whatever he can to keep Spotty, even if his rightful owners show up. Meanwhile, one of Sam's old baseball nemeses, Dutch Kincaid of the New York Yankees, wants Sam to pitch against him on the Yankee's Dutch Kincaid Day. He chose Sam because he as a hitter always had Sam's number: Dutch hit a home run almost every time Sam pitched to him. Sam doesn't want to do it, but Dutch and the gang at the bar goad him into it. Sam wants to strike Dutch out, and works out to get in top physical shape. On the day, Sam is approached by Cap Richards, Dutch's manager, who wants Sam to float a pitch to Dutch on the third throw, allowing Dutch to hit a home run. Sam is outraged and refuses to do it until Dutch's grandson, Billy, tells Sam a story of wanting to see his grandpa hit a home run, on ... Written by Huggo

Pitch It Again, Sam (#9.23)
22 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Sam's rival from the past Dutch Kincaid has some even where he wants to Sam to pitch against him because he always used to have homerun when Sam pitched. Sam finally agrees as he wants to have a big triumph. But the manager of Dutch sends in his kid to pretend to be Dutch's grandson who wants to once see his grandfather's homerun and Sam on purpose lets him have it.

I am actually not a fan of Sam's baseball episodes. They have such a common theme in them. Gets kind of boring. And he here one knew how it will end.

The puppy was a sweety. Oh please let Woody bring him into the bar more!
