Bob is giddy as ever when his role model, minor league pitcher Torpedo Jones, gives a shout-out to the restaurant during a game, but is blind-sided upon finding out Torpedo endorses his burgers for reasons which are morally shaky at best.

The Belchers attend the Wonder Wharf Wonderdogs, a minor league baseball team owned by Calvin Fischoeder. During 7th inning stretch, there is a mascot foot race. Gene wants to compete in the next race in the burger costume. Bob's "same-age role model," is pitcher, Torpedo Jones. He is author of the sometimes lethal pitch, the split-finger skadootch. Louise pushes for Torpedo to fix it for Gene to run in the next race. Bob is so grateful, he brings his idol a "thank you" burger. Torpedo Jones does a "yell out" to eat at Bob's Burgers and Bob is in heaven. The kids chat with Torpedo; his world view is very different from that of their father. Tina asks to be ball girl and the only stipulation is she bring Torpedo a burger before every game. The big issue pop flies all over the field: When does entertainment cross the line from good clean fun to cheating? Karma can be a real bi-otched roller coaster ride... Written by LA-Lawyer
