Storyline

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 Emil Petersen

best of series three?
4 August 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I just watched Homer at the bat again and I was thinking if this the best episode of series three. IT's great. It mixes parody's of all sorts of films which is just like the Simpson's and every line either makes you laugh or cry. The best thing about this episode though would probably have to be Mr Burn's since every line he says makes you burst out with laughter. His sarcastic tone and evil ways really plots this episode into one of the greats of season3 and also keeps you watching it.

Best episode of season three?

No. I think Flaming Moe's and Bart the murderer were still better but in a series with such high standards it's done brilliantly to get into my top 3 best of season3.
