  • Not a favorite

    I don't recommend you to see this episode or most of this season. Its not horrible, but its not good either. The thing with this episode is that the plot bored me and there just wasn't enough humor in this episode. All the scenes where Justin is forced to pitch without magic just bored me to death. However, the final scene was rather funny.

    A few good moments, mainly Max, but not a favorite and not one of my recommendationsmoreless
  • Cool episode

    This episode is now my favorite episode so far of Wizards of Waverly Place. It was funny and dramatic. It was also a very relationship like episode with Riley and Alex and the whole Good Luck Charm thing. I like Riley alot too and I was really, really happy to see him for the second time in the series in this episode. Yay for Riley and yay for the best episode in the series.moreless
  • great

    justin uses magic to become the pitcher for his dad's baseball team. but he feels so guilty that he tells his dad, who then forbids him from using magic in games. how will they win?

    good episode but i am not a fan of baseball so it lost a few points for me. i know very little about baseball and it bores me, but this episode was pretty funny and it didn't focus a whole lot on baseball, so i still liked it. overall my grade is in the "B" range, it was a pretty good and funny episode i thoughtmoreless
