EP 317 - Homer at the Bat

Mr. Burns bets $1,000,000 with his biggest Shelbyville rival that his plant softball team will win. To ensure this, he hires Major League baseball players to the power plant so they can be on his team. This effectively gets rid of most of the actual plant workers that were on the team. As the final game reaches though, all of players are somehow held up. One player ends up in jail, another ends up saving things from a burning house, and another one has an allergic reaction. Mr. Burns is forced to let his original players on the field and Homer scores the winning point when the ball hits his head and he faints.
