Jerry Orbach and Jesse Martin catch a case of a former detective now turned PI found shot to death in an abandoned apartment in Washington Heights. They actually spend a lot of time running down a false lead from one of the deceased's cases. However indirectly that investigation does send them in the right direction.
Which is concerning a youth baseball league where entrepreneur Larry Joshua could be seeing his empire collapse. Another rival league hired the deceased to investigate ringers and they find one in young Orlando J. Torres who is 14 and not 12 and using his cousin's ID. Joshua brought him and his father from Honduras because of the kid's talent. All Joshua needs to do is discover a potential Alex Rodriguez and he has it made.
I won't go into the details but Joshua is not the actual shooter. But Sam Waterston and Elisabeth Rohm feel there's culpability there and try him. He's a slick article pretending to be the savior of inner city youth.
The deceased was a man doing his job. But I really did like the way Jesse Martin put down the head of that other league when he sanctimoniously talks about cheating. These kids from Harrison, New York are shall we say more insulated.
