The gang and their baseball positions
Jimmy - Pitcher

Episode Quotes
Carl: OW! My scapula!

Butch: Okay, Neutron, if you get this one, I'll eat my hat!
(Butch throws ball, Jimmy's bat automatically hits ball)
Butch: (eating his hat) Not bad actually.

Carl: Make it stop Jimmy!
Cindy: Just end it Neutron!
Libby: I can't take it anymore!
Sheen: If you love me you'll end it now!
Jimmy: People we can't quit! It's the first inning.

Carl: We are so good!
Sheen: We're scary good!
Libby: Nobody can beat us!

Sheen: Jimmy's right! That's why I've been wearing the same underwear for 6 weeks.
The team: Ew.

Sheen: Hey Mr. Jackson can I ask you a question?
Tremendous Jackson: Sure thing kid!

Sheen: I knew it! I'm really Mike Piazza aren't I?
Jimmy: No.

Butch: Can we stop Miss Fowl! My team is tired of running around the bases so much!
Ms. Fowl: I thought you'd never ask! Butch's team is the winner!

Sheen: All in favor of never playing baseball again, say I.
The team: I.

Butch: Okay Neutron! Let the slaughter begin!

Butch: You guys are such losers!
Sheen: All those who agree with Butch.
The Team: I.

Hugh: Hey Jimbo! How was the game?
Jimmy: We lost again.



Episode Goofs
Terry appears in this episode but in Hall Monster, Miss Fowl said he moved.

If Jimmy is the pitcher for his team how could he be the first batter as well?

At one time, Butch's team is called Butch's Butchers, then the scoreboard changes to Grapeland Ducks and then Texywood Hawks.

When Jimmy sent the acorn into the Metabolic Accelerator it turned into a tree which stayed in the lab. So how comes the next day the tree wasn't in the lab.

In Aaughh!! Wilderness!! Hugh and Judy's car was blue, but in this episode it's white.

Episode References
While playing baseball Libby is listening to the same music that was played in the Party at Neutrons. The song was done by Boys Pretending to be Guys.



Analysis
At the beginning of The Retroville 9, the take me out to the ball game theme song was played. This is one done do to the fact that the episode is about baseball.

At the beginning of Grumpy Young Men, a stick man using a walking stick to walk was used. This is probably done due to the fact that Jimmy, Carl and Sheen turn into old men during the course of this episode.
