I'm warning you.

[evil laughter]
'Wow! Cookie Company
International Park.'
Ha ha ha. What a great
name for a ball field.
Yeah. Cookie.
I thought it used to
be called Potters Stadium.
It was, before Potters Stadium's
100-year-old foundation
gave out and it sunk
into the ground.
In fact, Cookie Company
International Park
was built right on top
of the old stadium.
I can't believe I actually
get to meet Louis Santiago.
Yeah, me too, Fred!
Ha ha ha.
Uh, like, who is he?
He's only the best
long ball hitter in baseball.
Today he's one home run
away from breaking
the all-time record.
Grizzly bear.
No, Scooby,
that's just Mr. Grizz.
The team mascot.
Hey, let go, you mutt.
Like usually it takes
a lot longer
before we're
unmasking people.
Heh heh. Sorry!
Hey, aren't you JT Paige?
I thought you
were a pitcher on this team.
Yeah, I was,
but then I got cut.
I remember that,
didn't you throw
a burrito at someone
in the stands?
Not exactly my finest hour.
They told me, the only way
I could stay with the club
is if I became
the new mascot, Mr. Grizz.
Cool, my name
is Fred Jones.
I won the meet
Louis Santiago contest.
So, we're here to meet,
Louis Santiago.
Yeah, he's right
over there.
Well, Louis, it's been a tough
couple of weeks for you.
Any thoughts on how to break
out of this draft you're in?
Umm, well, Bob, uh,
you used to play.
You know what it's like.
It's just a little slump.
I'll come out of it,
I'm sure.
Excuse me, Louis, I'm
Fred Jones, the contest winner.
Well, Fred, I see you
brought some friends with you.
Uh-huh, this is Velma,
Daphne, and Shaggy.
- And Scooby-Doo.
- Nice to meet you all.
So, remember that game
against San Jose
where you went 5-8
in extra innings?
And won the game
with a walk-up home run?
- Yeah?
- That was so cool.
And remember the time
that you were down
three runs to Portland
in the bottom of the ninth?
'Strike two!'
Strike three!
And that's all for the Grizzlies
in the second.
Here you go, Shaggy.
She gave you all that
stuff for free, Shaggy?
- Uh-huh!
- Why?
Like beats me.
She even said she'd
stop by every inning
just to see how I was doing.
That is one dedicated
peanut, soft serve
ice cream, pizza girl.
Oh, no, it's
starting to rain.
Don't worry, Daphne,
your hair won't get wet.
'Cookie Company International
Park has a retractable roof.'
Actually I was worried
about a rain-out.
The Grizzlies would
have to make up
the game
with a double header.
We're 1 in 17 in those.
And I did
just get my hair done.
(male #1 over PA)
'Okay, Grizz fans,
Steve Powell here'
'to call the bottom
of the second.'
'The first pitch
to Louis Santiago'
'is just on the outside
corner for a strike.'
I warned you.
Now everyone will suffer!
[glass shattering]
[evil laughter]
And so he told me that
if I tried to break the record
he'll make bad things
happen here at the park.
That's why I've been
pretending to be in a slump.
Any idea who this baseball
boogey-man might be?
Of course, he's the ghost
of the all-time
'home run leader, Cab Craig.'
(Shaggy and Scooby)
Louis, honey, that was great.
Well, not great, great.
But you know what I mean.
We're not only the lead story
on sports station
but the evening news too.
This is my publicist
Autumn Summerfield.
Hi, there, I'm Fred,
and this is Daphn..
Yeah, yeah,
wonderful for you.
Look, Louis,
we need to move on this
while the story is hot.
No pun intended.
Maybe Louis should rest up
before the big game.
Um, what are you doing?
Looking for the name tag
that say's Louis' trainer.
And I don't see it,
so, buzz off.
Autumn, give it a rest.
Daphne's right.
We'll talk about it
in the morning.
Don't worry, Louis,
you concentrate on baseball
and leave
the crime-solving to us.
We're gonna bring
that phony phantom to justice.
And the first thing
we need to do is
get a closer look
at those exploding lights.
[thunder rumbling]
Make sure to stay attached
to these safety lines.
It sure is a long way down
to the field.
- Take a look at this.
- But that doesn't make sense.
A generator that small
couldn't run all these lights.
No, but if the lights
were already running
it could overload them.
Causing them to explode.
You know what
my favorite kind
of food is,
- Unh-unh.
- Stadium food.
Uh, burying leftovers
for later?
- Uh-huh.
- Good idea.
Here, I'll give you a hand.
Hey, I wonder
where this goes.
Whoa, like,
where are we?
Uh, I don't know.
Remember what Velma said
about the old Potters Stadium
sinking into the ground?
Well, I think we're sunk too.
This must be how the baseball
spectre gets around.
All these tunnels are
right under the new field.
[evil laughter]
That spooky spectre won't
think to look in here.
[evil laughter]
Why do I get
the feeling he's not
trying to give us a nice
relaxing steam bath?
[evil laughter]
- Help!
- Help!
'Somebody get us out of here.'
It's Shaggy and Scooby.
Oh, no, it's jammed.
Stand back.
Like thanks,
one more minute
and we would've been a couple
of slow roasted peanuts.
Hey, gang,
what's that up there?
Like, maybe the cleaning crew
left a light on?
Or maybe it's
the baseball spectre.
Why do we just say I'm right
and leave it at that?
'This is where
Bob Taylor does'
'the radio broadcast
for the games.'
That's right. He used
to be a baseball player.
Sure, here's his trading card.
Oh, and it still got gum.
Played seven seasons,
threw leftie
And had a .102
batting average.
- Is that good?
- If you're playing tee-ball.
Actually come to think of it,
Bob Taylor was
on the same team
with Cab Craig.
[organ music]
Oh-oh, it's that awful
organ music.
Come on, gang,
I've got a plan.
Follow me!
[evil laughter]
Okay, Fred, so like
what's your plan?
'To come in here and see
who's playing that organ.'
- And then?
- Didn't think it out past that.
Well, I've got an idea.
Well you can play my game
if you just tell me your name ♪
Or you can play my game
but I'll put you to shame ♪
I almost broke
my highest score ♪
When you walked
through that door ♪
I lost my game
and you're to blame ♪
I could have been
in the hall of fame ♪
Well you can play my game
if you just tell me your name ♪
Or you can play my game
but I'll put you to shame ♪
Or you can play my game
if you just tell me your name ♪
Or you can play my game
but I'll put you to shame ♪♪
Uh, that sure was close.
I've heard of take me
out to the ball game.
But never take me
out at the ball game.
You're the baseball spectre?
Autumn Summerfield.
Why are you trying
to get a picture
of the baseball spectre?
I was driving home
when it dawned on me.
Louis' picture plus that creepy
catcher's picture
equals great publicity.
Now, why don't you kids
do me a favor?
And stop getting in my way.
- She sure is grouchy.
- And she sure is lying.
- What?
- How do you know?
Because, listen
to that storm outside.
She said she was driving home
when the idea hit her.
But did you notice
her suede shoes?
They were perfectly dry.
Maybe she dried them off.
Suede, please.
[alarm buzzing]
Like, what's that?
'Someone's trying
to let the rain in.'
And ruin tomorrow's game.
The controls for the roof have
to be around here somewhere.
There they are.
Now all what we have
to do is to get
past old, tall,
dark and terrible.
Okay, here's the plan.
Shaggy, you and Scooby
create a diversion.
- Right.
- Daphne?
You and Velma will jump
over to the other side
of the roof and get
to that control panel.
- Check!
- Check!
What about me?
Well, you're gonna make
your way over to the..
[evil laughter]
[evil laughter]
[indistinct chattering]
Oh, no, Scooby's
not gonna make it.
Freddy, what are you doing?
And we're safe.
[alarm buzzing]
Oh, no, you don't.
He's gonna hit the field.
Jeepers he went
right through the field.
Oh, great, let me guess, that
means we have to investigate
the dark, creepy,
spooky catacombs.
I wonder how many people
know about these old tunnels.
'A pickle barrel.'
Man, I could sure go for
a sweet dil
right about now.
Man, these things are ripe.
Wait a minute, guys,
those aren't pickles.
They're baseballs,
and they're soaking in kerosene.
You'd have to be pretty hungry
to eat pickled baseballs.
They're not for eating,
they're for throwing
flaming fastballs
by the baseball spectre.
Well, gang, it's morning.
Let's get up
to the field and see
if we can find
some more clues.
Fred, you mean, get out of this
cobweb filled catacomb
and into the nice
safe sunshine?
Oh, man, like you
talked me into it.
Yeah, me too!
Shot out of a canon?
No way, I'm an athlete
not an idiot.
I quit!
Scoob, maybe you can get work
as a bear skin rug.
That kid should
consider himself lucky.
I couldn't get a job
anywhere near baseball
after I left, but I did
what I had to do to get by.
I painted houses,
gave piano lessons
even did a stint
as a dog groomer.
- Dog groomer?
- Sure, here I'll show you.
Just brush this, straighten
that, handle it lose.
With a nice bow and voila.
Well, I'd better
get back up to the booth.
Bye, kids.
Hey, Louis, are you ready
for the big game?
I don't know, I've been watching
this old film of Cab Craig.
'He was my idol.'
- Hmm.
- Hey.
Like, where are all
the other players?
The game starts
in 15 minutes.
I guess they were scared off
by the spectre.
Looks like we're gonna have
to forfeit the game.
Forfeit the game?
No way, you gotta
break that record.
I think I've got this mystery
just about wrapped up.
And I know how we can help Louis
and catch that baseball spectre.
It's a beautiful night
for baseball, as the Grizzlies
'take the field.'
Do you think Scoob's okay?
Are you kidding?
What a ham.
Okay, fans, Steve Powell with
you to call the 3rd inning.
'And stepping to the plate
is Louis Santiago.'
'Who's only one home run away
from breaking the record.'
'It's the baseball spectre's'
'second appearance
in his many games.'
'He has four scares
and seven attempts.'
Now, Daphne!
Okay, Shaggy,
time for phase two!
'It's a ball, ball, strike,
ball, strike!'
'Ball, strike, strike.'
My plan is working perfectly.
'Now, all Scooby has to do
is lure the spectre'
'into the canon.'
We did it.
Plug your ears, Scoob.
click click click
I wonder what..
I can't see who it is.
Just take a look
up there.
[speaking in unison]
Bob Taylor!
Our first clue was
when we saw the spectre
playing the stadium organ.
'Bob Taylor told us that
when he couldn't get hired'
with a baseball team,
he used to give piano lessons.
But there was one clue that
really put it all together.
Notice when Cab
throws at the runner
he throws with his right arm.
The baseball spectre
is a leftie.
And according to Bob's
baseball card, so is he.
But why would you do this?
Because Cab Craig
was my best friend.
I wanted his record
to stand forever.
But what about Autumn?
I sure thought it was
suspicious that her shoes
were dry if she left the park.
Well, a girl's gotta be
prepared, don't you think?
Wow, I thought I was
the only one who did that.
Play ball!
Here you go, Shaggy.
I made you a caramel corn,
salted peanut
cotton candy,
chocolate malt sandwich.
I think I'm in love.
I think I'm gonna be sick.
Hey, guys, I was told you might
have an extra seat up here
so I could watch the game.
Wow, it's Mike Piazza.
Of course, you can watch
the game with us.
I came here to see if Louis
can break the record.
Uh, would you like
some food, Mike?
Sure, what've you got?
Um, actually, I-I just ate.
Thanks, anyway.
Hey, look, Louis
is coming to the plate.
[cheering and applause]
[organ music]
'And Louis Santiago
has broken the record.'
'He's broken the record.'
'All with a little help
from those meddling kids.'
[theme music]
