Synopsis by Hal Erickson
One of Ward's most prized possessions is a baseball containing the autographs of several legendary big leaguers. Unfortunately, reckless Beaver (Jerry Mathers) and Larry (Rusty Stevens) decide to play catch with the valuable ball, which is immediately squashed by a truck. The boys' desperate efforts to create a duplicate baseball fail when they provide "autographs" of players that never existed (at least, not in this world). Exploding with anger, Ward (Hugh Beaumont) grounds Beaver for an entire week. Eventually, Ward calms down and decides he's been too harsh on his son -- until Wally (Tony Dow), of all people, suggests that maybe Beav would prefer to serve the full punishment in order to get back in his dad's good graces.
