9.22 Pitch It Again, Sam - Cheers Episode Guide
A dalmatian puppy follows Cliff on his mail route, the pup which he names Spotty. Woody is immediately taken with Spotty. Well maintained, Spotty obviously is a lost pet, but Woody wants to keep him. When three firemen come into the bar lamenting about their lost puppy, Rebecca knows they're talking about Spotty. Woody reluctantly gives him back. As a reward, Woody wants a ride on a fire truck with the siren on with him driving. The firemen give up and think it easier to just give Woody the puppy - this is exactly what Woody wanted.

Sam is outraged and refuses to do it until Dutch's grandson, Billy, tells Sam a story of wanting to see his grandpa hit a home run, on this, his last day ever to play baseball. Sam falls for the story and floats the third pitch, allowing Dutch to hit a home run. Sam later finds out that the story was a fake - the "grandson" was really Cap's own son. Sam is mad, but so is Dutch. Dutch wanted legitimately to hit a home run against Sam once again. Sam still thinks he can strike Dutch out. So they take to a pitching/hitting match. Seems like Dutch still has Sam's number as he hits a home run on Sam's first pitch, and second pitch, and third pitch,...
