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...

Mighty?
26 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jack Warden plays a professional Baseball manager of the perennial losers the Hoboken Zephyrs, who one day is approached by a mysterious inventor who promises him a chance to reverse his team's misfortune by giving his android named Casey a chance at play. Skeptical but desperate, the manager gives Casey a chance, and is astonished and delighted when Casey hits home-run after home-run, becoming a media sensation and giving the Zephyrs a fighting chance at the pennant until Casey's identity is threatened with exposure... Warden makes this otherwise featherweight episode tolerable, though remains among the least efforts in the canon. Will appeal most to Baseball fans.
