Decent but it sure strains credibility...
The show begins with a man dying after confronting some burglar. Whether he was murdered or it was some accident wasn't certain, though the police rule it an accidental death. But the man's sister insists that Mannix should investigate and the trail soon leads into the barrio. There, Mannix is NOT treated very nicely and, of course, he gets the snot beaten out of him. But, Mannix persists and captures Valera--the other man that was in the house that night. But, and this NEVER made sense, Mannix soon starts to think the guy might be innocent. But before he can prove the man's innocence, the idiot escapes from jail with a cop's gun! What can Mannix do?
The episode wasn't bad but it never made sense why Mannix just knew that Valera was innocent. It's made even worse when Mannix puts his life on the line to save the guy as you wonder WHY! Also, there was a bit of overacting here and there. Still, not bad and worth seeing if you are a fan of the series. Otherwise, you could do a bit better.
By the way, that WAS Wrigley Field at the end of the show. Apparently, there was another Wrigley Field in south Los Angeles in addition to the famous one in Chicago. The place was used for minor league baseball, one season of the American League Angels and was used to film many Hollywood baseball movies such as "Pride of the Yankees". The place was in the middle of demolition when "To Catch a Rabbit" was filmed and you can see portions of the stadium are missing.
