Excerpt from The Plated City

"One strike!"

A murmur of discontent ran along the open stands on either side of the Bartonvale ball grounds, and even in the grand stand, where the umpire's decisions were usually taken philosophically, there was a decided shrugging of shoulders. In one of the directors' chairs, exactly behind the catcher, sat a young woman who was determined to know all about the game.

"Why, he didn't strike at all!" she exclaimed. "He didn't move. I was looking at him all the time."

"I don't know anything about it, my dear," said the elderly gentleman at her right, taking off his broad-brimmed felt hat and mopping his forehead patiently. "You'll have to ask Mr. Kennedy."

Craig Kennedy smiled, without taking his eyes from the pitcher. "You are quite right, Sally. He didn't move; the strike was called on him. It was wide of the plate, though. Look out now; here it comes again; watch it; watch it!"
