  • 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.
