Problem 1392. Convert a cell-array of values to MATLAB source code

The MATLAB interpreter loads your code and executes it using the Read-Evaluate-Print-Loop (see REPL).
In this problem you will go the opposite way; given an in-memory MATLAB cell-array can you convert it to legal MATLAB code?
i.e. if you have the cell array,
x={{'MLB',{'Red Sox','Yankees'},{'Rangers','Cardinals'}},{'NFL',{'Cowboys','Giants'},{'Patriots','49ers','Ravens'}}}
write a function that returns the string,
y = '{{''MLB'', {''Red Sox'', ''Yankees''}, {''Rangers'', ''Cardinals''}}, {''NFL'', {''Cowboys'', ''Giants''}, {''Patriots'', ''49ers'', ''Ravens''}}};'
which on 'eval(y)' can reconstruct x.
Also specialize to handle multiple levels of cell-arrays, and mixed string/double types.
