In this episode there is a scene where Leela is pitching and a woman from the audience stands up and yells "Throw like a girl!" in a supportive manner.  Later, that same woman appears to be Jackie Robinson.   

Maybe the women were different, but I remember them looking the same.  If it's the latter, I wonder if this was somewhat of a continuity error.  Or maybe Jackie had a sudden change of heart about what Leela was doing and became determined to be the first good female Blernsball player.  I checked the capsule for this episode and didn't notice anything mentioned about Jackie, so maybe the appearance thing is all in my head    :confused:

No, that was Jackie in both instances.

In the first appearance she's never seen Leela pitch before. She's an up-and-coming blernsball player herself, hoping for a shot in the big league, so naturally she's enthusiastic about finally seeing a female player on a major league team, since it will make it easier for her to get a spot as well.

Then she witness how bad Leela is at pitching. This severely lessens her chances of playing professionally, resulting in a much less positive opinion of Leela.

No continuity error or mistake there, all very deliberately and straight-forward.

BTW, her last name is Anderson, not Robinson.

Thanks for the explanation.  I'm glad I wasn't seeing things.  I thought the name was wrong, oops   :hmpf:
