Ma Colton arrives home from a one-week family reunion and MacGyver arrives with the Coltons’ dog, Frog. Frank and Jesse are on a big bail case and Billy is at his grandmother's. As they go inside, a young boy runs off with a box. He climbs beneath a fence and gives the box to a teenager, T.J. Mitchell, sitting on a bike nearby. Ma Colton and MacGyver chase after the boy and Frog tracks the boy as the teenager runs off. Frog corners the thief, Ricky, and the boy explains that he had to steal the box of Frank's baseball cards or T.J. would have beaten him up. Somebody traded Ricky bogus baseball cards that they got from T.J. and Ricky tried to trade them back to T.J. T.J. caught him and forced him to steal Frank's cards. The boy tells them they can find T.J. at the Batter's Box Card Shop...Read the full recap
MacGyver: Where're the boys?
Ma Colton: Well, Frank and Jesse got called on a big-job bail case. Right in the middle of the family reunion. And my mother won't let Billy come just now. Do you know, he had nerve enough to tell her he liked her cooking better than mine?
MacGyver: So you're a baseball fan.
Wendy Reilly: I'm not a fan, I'm a product.
Wendy Reilly: I love baseball, and hate anything that ruins it.
