Episode Recap

St. Louis Carndinals star pitcher Bob Gibson is vacationing in the Everglades. When his small boat capsizes, Tom comes along in the airboat and gets him out of the water.

When Mark has a chance to strike out a batter who has dust in his eye, he decides to play fair and let's the batter compose himself.
