Storyline

As Lilith is going away for family business, she entrusts Frasier with taking care of her beloved lab rat, Number 17A, who she coins Whiskers. Frasier brings Whiskers to the bar, and promptly loses him. Since Frasier can't find Whiskers, he decides to buy a rat from the pet store and train it to pass it off as Whiskers. Meanwhile, the arrival of Mitch Ganzell, an old baseball buddy, prompts Sam to follow in Mitch's footsteps and try-out for the Red Sox' farm team as a relief pitcher, this despite their respective ages. Miraculously, they both make the farm team. However only Sam makes it to the team as Mitch comes down with a sudden injury courtesy of Whiskers. Carla decides to visit Sam while he's on the road pitching. Although Sam is pitching well, he admits to Carla that he really hasn't been able to go back to life as it was the first time around, namely to the carousing and pranks of the younger guys. He hates his new old life. Unless the other players can change to Sam's ... Written by Huggo

Quotes

Cliff Clavin: You know, there's a lot of misunderstanding about rats. The rodendus vermikitis as they're called in Latin. It turns out our long tailed friend wasn't after all responsible for the dreaded bubonic plague as alleged through history. Yes, sir. It was caused by an animal called the bubon. That's right, and the threat by the way is still with us. So if anyone does see a bubon, contact your local authorities.
Carla Tortelli-LeBec: [looking straight at Cliff] What if we just see a boob?

Take Me Out of the Ball Game (#10.21)
27 June 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

A guy Sam used to play baseball with wants to make a comeback and Sam thinks that maybe he could do it as well. He makes it on the team but he isn't happy as he doesn't enjoy the entertainment the young team mates do. And Frasier takes care of Lilith's lab rat when she is away but he runs away.

I am not a big fan of episodes where they try to make the message about how boring we get when we get old and how great it is to grow up. Sam's comeback story wasn't for me.

The story with the rat was just a small story but it had its good moments. Lilith sure does love her rats! And I am very glad Whiskers came back.
