Retired baseball star Cano Vega is murdered on a Spanish Harlem community baseball field he sponsored, with his skull smashed with a bat. He had borrowed $200,000 from a loan shark and his wife believed him adulterous. Yet, she and agent Bobby Fox point at Alfredo Quintana, editor of a Cuban diaspora magazine, which called him a traitor after a visit to Castro's Cuba, which he was a refugee from. He was beaten by a team mate before the murder but there's more to the Cuban connection.

Just after the part where Kate goes to call her father after seeing Joe Torre, Kate and Castle are talking to Bobby Fox at the table in his office. As he is talking about the Field being built he's playing with a bottle of water and the black top is on. Camera cuts to a side view of Bobby and he states things hadn't changed as much as he'd hoped for and the top is now gone. Camera cuts to a shot of Kate and the top is back on again. Shortly after, Bobby picks up the bottle and then goes to take a drink. When the camera cuts back to him, the bottle is gone from the desk. He then proceeds, after some dialogue, to get up and walk over to the drinks counter where he picks up a bottle of water and goes back to the end of the desk where he stands with his arms out telling a story. The top is on then it's off then it's back on again. Finally, he sits back at the desk and the bottle is gone. See more
