While playing in an important game for the Bedrock Quarry baseball team, Fred inadvertently switches uniforms with the team's star player, rookie Roger. However, the switch is made after Roger is spotted by a big-league scout--so naturally, it is Fred who is assumed to be the winning player. At first protesting the error, Fred begins to relish the notion of a big-league contract. . .while his friends and family members react with disgust over his willingness to live a lie. (Trivia note: "Roger" is named for New York Yankees star Roger Maris; other character names in this episode include "Casey", as in Stengel, "Leo", as in Durocher, and "Warren", as in Spahn).
