Storyline

Sam leaps into the body of Lester 'Doc' Fuller, a minor league baseball pitcher with the Galveston Mustangs. Al tells him that Doc makes it to the major leagues and has an outstanding first year but then disappeared after accidentally hitting someone with a pitch and killing him. Al thinks Sam is there to help Doc get back into the major leagues. Sam wonders if he's really there to save Doc or to help Chucky, the real pitching ace on the team. Chucky is an angry young man however, drinking on game days and often getting into fights. With a major league scout scheduled to take in the big game, Sam may get the start because Doc has been sleeping with owner, Margaret Twilly. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

In Al's original history of the ballgame, he says that Doc lost a 1-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. In the game we see, Chucky pitches into what's called the bottom of the ninth. But the scoreboard at the field shows Doc and Chucky's team the Mustangs as the home team, who would be batting and not pitching in the bottom of innings (and wouldn't need to if they were ahead after the top of the ninth). Either Al - and the PA announcer at the ballpark - messed up, or the scoreboard is incorrect. See more »
