And the Glory

“And the Glory” is episode #240 of the Adventures in Odyssey audio series. It was written by Marshal Younger and Paul McCusker, and originally aired on July 24, 1993.


Lawrence Hodges and Jimmy banter as announcers on Kids' Radio and can't agree on who makes the better Odyssey Coyotes sportscaster.



The Odyssey Coyotes are closer to the championship than they’ve ever been, thanks to Pete Flanagan’s pitching. Pete has been working hard on his skills. In fact, he’s even skipped Sunday school just to get in some pitching practice. Whit warns Pete he needs to spend time with God, who gave him his pitching talent. Pete promises to get back to church, just as soon as the season is over.

Later, in a decisive game, Pete dives to catch the ball for the win. He injures his arm in the process. The Coyotes’s only available backup pitcher is Henry Thomas. Pete takes Henry under his broken wing and teaches him how to be a great pitcher. Henry rises to the occasion magnificently, and promptly forgets that Pete was the one who taught him how to win games.

The championship arrives. Henry struggles through it, barely hanging on to the Coyotes’s lead. Pete tries to give Henry advice that will win the game, but Henry will have none of it. He decides to forget Pete completely and do what he wants. As a result, the Coyotes lose the game. Pete realizes that just as Henry turned his back on Pete, he turned his back on the Lord. He was guilty of ignoring the one who should receive all the glory — God.

This plot section is too short and should be expanded. »

Lawrence Hodges: No, Jimmy. I'm sorry, but I completely disagree with you. The regular fries are just not as tasty as the crinkle cut.
Jimmy Barclay: You're crazy! They're the exact same thing, just- just in different shapes!
Lawrence Hodges: You just look at the package of crinkle cut fries. Check out the ingredients. You know what's in the list that's not in the list of regular fries?
Jimmy Barclay: What?
Lawrence Hodges: Sodium acid pyrophosphate! And that makes all the difference!

Jimmy Barclay: Kids' Radio will be right back after this moment of silence for the American troops in...
Lawrence Hodges: Canada!
Jimmy Barclay: Canada!

John Whittaker: Since you don't have baseball anymore, I assume we'll see you in church this Sunday, huh?
Pete Flanagan: I don't know, Mr. Whittaker. You know the doctor wants me to rest the arm and all.
John Whittaker: Oh, I see. All that heavy hymnbook holding.

Henry Thomas: You really think I'm a good pitcher?
Pete Flanagan: Well, with a little more discipline and tough practice schedule, I think you can be just as good, if not better than, say... my little sister?
