This episode wasn't originally set to be the season opener. ABC had just finished broadcasting the World Series and decided that this episode would probably gain some additional viewers. The 2nd episode of this season was intended to be the season opener.
Musician Stephen Geyer wrote the original song "The Game Goes On" for this episode. Stephen J. Cannell has said it was his favorite among all of Geyer's musical contributions to the show.
