Jimmy Mathers, younger brother of Leave It to Beaver star Jerry Mathers, appears on this episode. Samantha decides to offer a helping hand when insecure ten-year-old Marshall Burns (Mathers) tries out for the neighborhood league baseball team. Unfortunately, Sam's "assistance" consists largely of witchcraft -- and as usual, she has to cook up a story to hide the fact that she possesses magical powers. Also appearing is another 1960s TV icon, June Lockhart, as Marshall's overproctective mother. Written by Barbara Avedon, "Little Pitchers Have Big Ears" first aired on October 22, 1964.
