  • One of the few episodes to focus mainly on Winston Zeddemore.

    THe episode Starts off with Winston looking to go see his team play ball. After everyone declines, he convinces Slimer (with the allusion of free food) to accompany him. During the game some weird acurances happen, and Winston decides to go it alone after everyone refuses to believe him. Winston is suddenly trapped in the stadium under a barrier, and it's up to the others to rescue him. But as they soon find out, Winston was right, and a ghostly game of good and evil is being played out on the baseball diamond. The purpose? One Soul. With Winston leading the team, Good eventually triumpths and it is soon reveales that it was Peter's soul being played for, not Winstons.



    Overall an episode that strayed from the norm of run in, bust ghost get out. Winston shines in this episode, as the character he was intended to be. The down to earth man that the Ghostbusters hired on the spot. His approach was not to over analyze, or find a scientific approach, but to go in with his knowledge of common sense, and help good win. Overall a great episode, and a shame Winston didn't get many more solo outings.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Winston's car is shown for the first time in this episode. When he heads over to the baseball stadium to investigate the night game, we get a brief glimpse of the hood, front grate and headlights. We also briefly see the interior when he gets out of the car. His car is brown and resembles a Honda Civic. This is also the first time one of the Ghostbusters is seen driving a personal car.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • (The Evil team has just blatantly cheated on a play, but the Good team still manages to get a fly out.)
      Umpire: You're out!
      Peter: Wait! Stop! Hold everything!
      Umpire: You disagree with my call?
      Peter: No, no! Good call! "You're out!" Concise. I just wanted to point out, seeing as you're new to this game and all, that Evil just cheated.
      Ray: Full tilt, flat out, no doubt about it!
      Egon: Doesn't that call for a forfeiture of the game?
      Umpire: You mean declare Evil the losers for cheating?
      Peter: That's the basic idea, yeah.
      Umpire: But Evil cheats. That's its nature. It does whatever immoral or unscrupulous thing it has to in order to win. Only Good is not allowed to cheat. If Good adopts the ways of Evil, then it becomes Evil. So if Good cheats, Evil automatically wins. Got it? Play ball!!
      Ray: I wonder if Good is allowed to steal bases?
      Peter: Maybe Good just borrows em, Ray.

  • NOTES (1)

    • At the end of the episode, Egon mentions the Toronto Blue Jays being the baseball team to watch. This seems appropriate since Maurice LaMarche, Egon's voice actor, is originally from Toronto.
