The old ballgame at the old ballpark
15 March 2017 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Candlestick Park is no more but like in the film Experiment In Terror it is preserved for us cinematically in this Ironside story. And unlike in the feature film, in color.

A beloved Gil Hodges like ballplayer Gary Collins becomes the target of an obsessed fan who wants to make a big blackmail score. The phone call threats and then when Noam Pitlik starts shooting at Collins with a BB gun during the game while in action it's getting both real and unnerving.

The one thing Pitlik doesn't figure on is that Collins has Don Galloway as a friend. Of course the Ironside team will get the case involving the Giants star ballplayer who is not either Willie Mays or Willie McCovey.

Bruce Gordon has a nice turn as the Giants manager not knowing what to make of what is going on with his star. Real life wife Mary Ann Mobley of Gary Collins plays his wife here.

All in all a good day's work for Chief Ironside's squad.
