Storyline

Mouth McGarry is the manager of the Hoboken Zephyrs professional baseball team. They are perennial losers and are already so far back in the standings that they have no chance of winning the pennant. McGarry is approached by Dr. Stillman who has a solution for him, Casey, who seems to be an ideal pitcher, the best McGarry has ever seen. The catch is that Casey is a robot. McGarry is eager to win and decides to use Casey without telling anyone. When his ruse is discovered, Dr. Stillman agrees to give Casey a heart to make him more human. The results aren't quite what McGarry had hoped for. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] Once upon a time, there was a major league baseball team called the Hoboken Zephyrs, who, during the last year of their existence, wound up in last place and shortly thererafter wound up in oblivion. There's a rumor, unsubstantiated, of course, that a manager named McGarry took them to the West Coast and wound up with several pennants and a couple of world championships. This team had a pitching staff that made history. Of course, none of them smiled very much, but it happens...

You cant win them all
4 February 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This threadbare sporting story is the penultimate entry of season one. Set in the past, so this robot pitcher Casey (Robert Sorrell) would seem to be a one off. Baseball coach McGarry (Jack Warden) is struggling with the Hoboken Zephyrs until Casey's robot precision pitching sees them winning. Casey picks up an injury and McGarry has more trouble.

The baseball league is not meant for robots (Richard Matheson's 'Steel', series five, is better where boxing is for robots only in a very near future) so there has to be a couple of twists as it cant be fair play.

One of the very few weak entries in the fabulous first series.
