The Bluth Company plays Sitwell Enterprises at softball in "Switch Hitter"

Michael is approached by Stan Sitwell, a longtime rival to George Bluth about a potential partnership over the Sudden Valley development.

Sitwell hires him on the spot because the deal was lousy.

Michael wants to remain president of the Bluth Company so he gives G.O.B. ideas to feed to Sitwell. George convinces Michael that Sitwell hired G.O.B. simply because he is the best softball player but in the end at a softball match between the Bluth Company and Sitwell Enterprises Stan Sitwell's kindness turned out to be real: he really thought G.O.B. could be a valuable member of Sitwell Enterprises.
