Goofs

The eponymous "Baseballs of Death" (aka cluster bomblets) are not shown to be sold inside the cluster munitions where they would be used. Cluster bomblets can only be employed in artillery shells or air-dropped bombs. The episode constantly seems to imply that they can be used or deployed as grenades, which is not the case. See more »

This episode's got a great soundtrack and climax!
9 February 2008 | by edwardjamessmithSee all my reviews

Miami Vice season four (which ran from 1987-1988) was better than its previous season for three reasons: 1- Crockett's hairstyle was better. 2- Jan Hammer's score changed for certain episodes. 3- The pastels came back. This episode "Baseeballs Of Death" has got quite an original story which makes it good, a great soundtrack and a climax! The only thing I found quite irritating about season four was that there was hardly any action with scarab. All in all, this episode is one of my favorites from season four along with: "Rising Sun Of Death", "Deliver us from Evil" and "Mirror Image". Rating 9/10. Miami Vice is a great show and knows how to entertain.
