Homer and his co-workers join the power plant's softball team and qualify for the final. When Mr. Burns hears his plant is playing the final against Shelbyville's power plant team, he makes a $1 million bet with the owner of the Shelbyville nuclear power plant, Aristotle Amadopoulos. To make sure he will win the bet, Mr. Burns hires 9 professional baseball players (Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs, Ken Griffey Jr., Steve Sax, Ozzie Smith, José Canseco, Don Mattingly, Darryl Strawberry, and Mike Scioscia), but 8 of the players are of the team after getting involved in different accidents. Unfortunately for Homer the professional player left is Darryl Strawberry, a right fielder like Homer, but in the end everything is up to Homer. Written by
