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

Narrator: [Opening Narration] What you're looking at is a ghost, once alive but now deceased. Once upon a time, it was a baseball stadium that housed a major league ball club known as the Hoboken Zephyrs. Now it houses nothing but memories and a wind that stirs in the high grass of what was once an outfield, a wind that sometimes bears a faint, ghostly resemblance to the roar of a crowd that once sat here. We're back in time now, when the Hoboken Zephyrs were still a part of the National League, and this ...

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.
