Episode Summary

Out at the Old Ballpark
Paladin reads in a newspaper article that a hotly disputed baseball game in the mining town of Whiskey Slide resulted in multiple killings. The mayor of the town is calling for an honest umpire, so that the game can be played out. It turns out that the killings were merely journalistic exaggeration, but Paladin has already offered his services: he served with Abner Doubleday during the Civil War, saw National League games in Cincinnati, and witnessed the first curve ball ever pitched in 1876.moreless
