As Tom Stratton, Sam comforts his (Tom's) wife and prevents her from having a premature birth. This is what he was sent to do, allowing him to leap home (he hopes). But instead of leaping home, he leaps into Tim Fox, a minor league baseball player in Texas at the end of the 1968 season, in the middle of a game, where he must make the winning play in order to leap further. Aided by errors, Tim Fox, after a dropped third strike on a wild pitch, rounds the bases for the winning score, and Sam leaps into Dr. Gerald Bryant as a college professor in the middle of a class.
