27. IN THE BIG INNING
October 1, 1975
After a humiliating loss the previous year, Walnut Grove is confident about the upcoming baseball game with their new ace pitcher, Jebediah Mumford. So confident that there are wagers on the game. However, when Jebediah’s very religious wife, Margaret finds out of the gambling, she forbids Jebediah to play. Caroline comes up with a compromise to donate the winning to the church fund if Jebediah could play. Baseball wackiness ensues leading to a big brawl with Walnut Grove winning the game on a inside-the-park grand-slam by Charles.
