Episode Summary

EDIT
The Weemawee Braves are holding baseball tryouts when star pitcher Vinnie harasses Johnny until he finally has had enough and takes a turn at bat. Johnny hits three consecutive pitches for home runs and immediately makes the team. Coach Donovan is beside himself since his school has not won a single baseball game since 1955.moreless

  • Johnny demonstrates his heretofore unknown ability to knock one out of the park; Patty writes it all down.

    9.0
    The episode begins with a closeup of typewriter keys clacking onto a sheet, and then we see Sarah Jessica Parker typing as her voiceover narrates. Wait a minute, have we stumbled onto the wrong show? Nope. 15 years before Carrie, this episode unintentionally foreshadows what's to come. It's a shame "Pegs" was canceled so soon. By the time this installment aired the cast had gelled and things were less clunky, so it's even more of a pity that this is the penultimate episode. Everybody is completely believable and at their best. The dustup between Jennifer and Muffy, Johnny's talent and Patty's budding journalism career are all high notes.



    Note the fact that by the way Steve Sax talks about going into "the city" that he means New York even though no effort is made to hide any of the plam trees in the background.moreless
