Tear Jerker: Angels in the Outfield
Al telling Roger that Mel Clark is dying of cancer and won't live to see next season.
Roger's dad officially gives up custody of Roger to the state, then walks out of the courtroom just as Roger walks in all excited about how the Angels were rocketing up the standings...and out of Roger's life for the last time.
