Episode Summary

EDIT
Curveball
AIRED:
Ben Bogart is an overbearing father who mercilessly pushes his son Max to win saying that if he wants to have fun, he has to win. During a family fight at the batting cage, Max is so fed up that he says he wishes he had never been born. In the fracas, both Ben and Max are hit in the head with fastballs from the pitching machine and both land in Emergency. Mr. Smith follows them to the hospital and is surprised to see Judge Othniel, who says he is there to help him. His help is much needed when, to Mr. Smith's shock and anger, it is 15-year old Max who dies and not his father. Instead of being sent back to his childhood, Max and Mr. Smith are sent back to the time when Ben was Max's age. Here Max sees that his dad was also verbally abused by his father and so he abused Max because it's all he knew. He also learns the truth about his dad's boasting of his big hit in the big game. Max realizes that he has to convince his teenage dad that he doesn't have to be the same as his father. He must also keep Ben from leaving for California to be with his mom because that would mean leaving his girlfriend and future wife and then Max really would never be born.moreless
