The Twilight Zone - Extra Innings
29 August 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Marc Singer is delightful as a crippled former baseball star still in love with the game but unable to play. A girl (Tracy New) thinks the world of him and his enthusiasm for baseball is intoxicating. She's a fastball pitcher and he's always at her games, rooting for her. Well his wife (Amber Weston) wants him to grow up and get a job. He's always trading cards and talking baseball while she works and pays all the bills. She's fed up. Singer is given a special card going way back before Babe Ruth by New and both realize his stats and that player's are eerily similar. In fact, the card actually awakens him, emanating light, allowing him to go back in time and replace the player who suffered a blow to the head that sent him into a coma he never recovered from! Singer keeps going back, leading his team to a possible pennant! Weston is tired of Singer and his singular focus of baseball, telling New her adulation and idol worship of him should cease. New sees that Singer would be better off playing the game he loves than catering to the wife who wants him to sell computers. Fantasy that is perfectly Twilight Zone. A bum leg holds a baseball star from continuing to play in a game he loves. When he gets another chance, with both legs operational, an eye for the baseball and slugger swing to match, Singer is able to relive the glory and spirit of the game. And if anyone deserves a second chance it is the exuberant and excitedly appealing Singer. This is a satisfying episode.
