Flub: Notice when Magnum and Rick are watching the game sitting on the grass just after the boys get into a fight at 2nd base. Rick is writing something on paper and Magnum gets on his case about gambling on a child's baseball game. Rick then apparently reveals that he is wrinting a recipe for chicken marsala to send to his mother. Rick's mother and father are both dead as we learned in Distant Relative which was shown several weeks before this episode. I believe this was a little bit sloppy. The show typically had great continuity.

This one's below average for me, but still quite enjoyable. John Saxon seemed under utilized. The guy was in Enter the Dragon. They missed a great opportunity to have a classic brawl involving Saxon, Selleck & Mosley! ;)

Ok, another oceanfront ballfield ID needed...

James,

It has been a few years since I've seen the episode but I believe it was filmed at Kawaikui Beach Park.I remember Koko head in the background.

Number 40.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but for some reason this is one of my favorite episodes of season 4. It must be the baseball theme. This episode does feature (in my opinion) one of the worst performances by a non-guest star. The line delivered by the arcade manager when Magnum and others went looking for Danny was terrible. It was almost embarrassing to watch. I don't know if it was the guy's voice or what, but it was awful.

Yeah, Kuliouou Beach Park. Good find Sam! Check out this fantastic quicktime virtual reality panorama (from this page).

Rick could have walked over from his place. :wink:

To add: here's the other baseball field from the beginning of the show which is supposed to be in the "Jororo Islands." Lanakila District Park.

And here's where young Danny Linn is caught by his security after climbing the fence at the above baseball field. Can't quite place it exactly but it's on Sing Loy Lane which is a small street, as you can see, with the freeway in the background. So they actually have Danny run in the right direction from the ballpark to get where he's caught a few blocks away, even though it's not seen in the episode.

Cool, that's definitely it! The surrounding buildings look exactly the same as they did 25 years ago! What a beautiful little park that is. On the way over to Waimanalo, I'll be sure to stop off there for a quick visit. Looks like a great spot for a Frisbee toss! ;)
