  • [Crusader Cats] CCMD-01 Play Ball!

    This is an ongoing story I'm writing that occurs in a World similar to the Swat Kats and the Mighty Ducks that is not part of any of my given serials. It is about a human teenager who encounters an alien race of felines who love the baseball sport (and perform crime fighting on the side) where he occasionally transforms into a Felisapien like his new friends and in turn joins with their sports team to help them to achieve victories in their games. Enjoy.

    Chapter One: Play Dirty or Leave The Planet.


    Planet Felis, Constellation of Leo.

    The action starts on another world in the Constellation of Leo where my new friends to be were finishing up their latest baseball game.

    Lynna the Felis City announcer was saying, "In the bottom of the ninth, the Felis City Crusaders are playing very well despite receiving threats to throw the game against the Battalion just so one of the mobs on Planet could collect an illegal payoff with a bookie. But as you can see from how well the team is playing, they do not think too highly of Underworld threats. The score is 39 to 40 in the Battalion's favor and we are coming down to the wire. In fact, this final play by the local Right Fielder Jaguar, Jazco will decide the game. Here comes the line up and the pitch... and, Jazco has hit the ball high into center field it seems to be heading for the fence. Battalion player Shield just jumped up and... Great Felix, he caught Jazco's home run hit! And that's the game, folks! The Battalion Battle Cats have won the Felis World Series; better luck next time, Crusaders! And now I see Jazco speaking to one of those local bookies and he doesn't seem to know that I have a clear view of his meeting. Great Felix, Jazco just received what looks like a wad of Follars for apparently throwing the game. And now I see the team manager, Crusader, confronting Jazco and the bookie with an armed guardsman as witness. I cannot hear what they are saying but Crusader is keeping his cool and Jazco looks upset from whatever Crusader just told him and now I see Crusader confiscating the team bracelet from Jazco and now the team uniform is being removed from the former player. The armed guardsman is escorting Jazco and the bookie out of the stadium. And now I see the Planetary leader, Maximus Kou-Gar, speaking directly to Crusader. There are times when I would love to have super hearing."

    Down on the side of the ball diamond, Maximus was saying to Crusader, "I think removing Jazco from your team is a mistake; you are now a player short, Crusader. I don't care if you are chief of police here in Felis City. Your team is as good as out of future games if you cannot get a new Right Fielder. I've never liked you that much, Crusader, so if you cannot get a new player, I would not be upset at all."

    Crusader replied, "Since you care about Jazco so much, you can take his dishonest ass with you. I was nice enough to allow his species cloak to stay on until he leaves Felis City or twenty four hours passes first. And I will thank you to get your army out of my city as well. All mob controlled bookies will be kicked out of the city by sun down. We've known about the dishonest practices going on with the other teams, but apparently you are in on this racket, Maximus. Please get out of my city."

    Maximus said, "You are going to regret this, Crusader!" And he turned as he took Jazco and his armed guard back to the jaguar's apartment to clean it out.

    Lynna now said, "Maximus is escorting his armed forces and Jazco out of the stadium. And now I see Crusader giving the signal for the entire team to suit up into their law enforcement gear. For those who don't know, The Crusaders are all sworn in members of the city's law enforcement team. I have just received the official announcement from Crusader that a crack down on removing all underhanded citizens from Felis City; so if you are a bookie or a standard criminal, you best make yourself scarce before the Crusaders find you! This is Lynna signing off!" And she stepped away from the microphone as she activated her own law enforcement swat armored suit. She then escorted the Battalion announcer to the exit of the city and left him outside in the parking lot. "Sorry, but Crusader's orders were specific. no hard feelings. I had to make sure you got safely out of the city to avoid being mauled by the locals." And then she headed back inside where she saw all manner of former citizens being escorted to the exit of the city.

    Anyone choosing to hide in the sewers under the city found that they were not being prevented in going down there. But had they known what Crusader's plan was, they might have chosen to just leave the city. The more honest citizens whose dead beat father whom had chosen to embrace the dishonest track chose to stay in the city severing ties with their former spouses or fathers. By sundown, all dishonest former citizens were removed from the city. And then Crusader activated the city seal, a protocol installed in case of planetary attacks. Disengaging the city anchors, Crusader sat at the command bridge of the city ship and he launched the thrusters to remove his city from the planet.

    Maximus growled, "What in Balthazar is he doing?!"

    As the city ship flew off the planet, Crusader said, "Lynna, open a channel to Earth's MIB contact station. We are en route to Earth where we intend to claim a nearly empty township near two major highways in Kansas but well away from the other major cities. We are coming to Earth to play baseball."

    "We hear you, Crusader! We have a township in Kansas available for your people to claim. The township of Meredith in Cloud county is nearly abandoned having a local population of 75 farmers and their families. Aim for the government land just Southeast of the US 24 and US 81 intersection. We will authorize your occupation. Coordinates incoming. Please don't molest too many humans while you are down here."

    Crusader remarked, "We are good kitties, MIB. We threw the riffraff out of the city before leaving the home world. E.T.A. roughly two and a half hours; we will rebuild the sewers and treatment plant when we arrive. We lost the Planet Felis World Series. Crusader out."

    Lynna said, "Maximus will come after us, Crusader. He likely forgot that you could transport the city where ever you wanted."

    Crusader smirked. "His loss; the main reason we are going to Earth is because I learned that the Puck World resistance went to the planet Earth to play ice hockey when they weren't fighting Dragaunus. And if humans don't mind playing ice hockey against some ducks, then humans shouldn't mind playing baseball with a bunch of law cats. And for the added record, Kou-Gar's real name isn't Maximus; he added that to his name as a form of title before he joined the elections. Word on the street was that he was an employee of the Felis Mob. Which means that he answers to that Hell Cat called Antonio Flambeau."

    Lynna said, "I wonder how deep of a fellatio Jazco gave Antonio to join his team?"

    Crusader replied, "Inappropriate topic, Lynna, but within bounds since Jazco betrayed us. But if he did drink that Hell Cat's fluids, that would explain why he threw the game so easily to our opponents during the World Series. I hope we never see him again. But we need to find someone to wear the Right Field bracelet."

    End of Chapter One.

    Chapter Two: Stranded Blues.

    Meredith Township, Cloud County, Northern Kansas; USA

    Near the Intersection of US 24 and US 81 in Cloud county, Kansas, my mother and I sat in our car at the side of the road waiting for Triple A to show up to assist us with the trouble that mom's car suddenly developed. By the way, I am Michael Douglas; my mother, Michelle Douglas (using her maiden name since the divorce,) is behind the wheel in the front seat. We are local residents and mom normally has a job in Concordia up north; but then her car chose to break down and here we are. But this was to be the greatest day of my life.

    While Michelle was reading one of her romance novels that she had brought with her, Michael had been looking out the car window toward the sky when he saw the fortress city swoop down out of the clouds and glide over the car before beginning its descent toward the government lands to the Southeast. Michael got out of the car at that point and he used his personal boy scout mirror to flash a quick message at the craft. the message was [Car Trouble.] Moments later what looked like a space age jeep convertible arrived just behind their stalled vehicle and four anthropomorphic felines got out and approached the young man standing there. They didn't look like the Swat Kats.

    The felines wore what looked like Sci-Fi armored police uniforms. Their leader was a male Indian tiger standing at 6'3" and having an orange overcoat with black stripes and a white undercoat. He also had dark green eyes. The only female of the small group was a leopard woman standing at 6' even and she had sexy black fur all over her body and she had black eyes. The shortest cat with them looked like a male alley cat standing at 4'11" tall and he had brown and black fur while his eyes were dark brown. And the final feline member of the group appeared to be one of those Salem Massachusetts Witch Cats with black fur and shiny yellow eyes. The Indian tiger approached Michael and said, "What seems to be the problem, citizen?" At least these cats spoke English or so it sounded.

    "Um, I am Michael Douglas; my mother's car stalled out during our trip to Concordia where my mother has a job that she is probably going to lose since we broke down out here on the highway. Who are you guys? You don't look like the Swat Cats; your uniforms are cleaner than theirs."

    Most of the felines smiled at that compliment. "I am Captain Indigo of the Crusader Cats; we are law enforcement felines from outer space. During our down time, we play baseball where I am the pitcher. We are out a right fielder at the moment. This is Overcast our team catcher; the alley cat is Tom, our shortstop and team mechanic; and the Witch Cat is our center fielder and stage magician. Our Fortress City just landed to the Southeast of here. We call it Felis City."

    Michael then said, "I'll have mom pop the hood so you can look it over. If you fix the car, I'll see if mom will let me play baseball with you guys. I haven't gotten to play any good baseball in quite a while. I really like your uniforms." And he walked up along side the car and opened the back seat door and said, "Mom, pop the hood, a local citizen who is good with mechanics wants to see if he can fix the car's problem. And he is with some baseball players; I am impressed with these people and you know that I love baseball. If they fix the car, may I play baseball with them?"

    Michelle replied, "They have to fix this old piece of crap on wheels, son. And you know what the last mechanic said about this car. But if they can pull off a miracle, then you have yourself a new baseball team to play with." She reached down and pulled the hood release switch.

    Michael then said, "Mom... one last detail. These guys are galactic law enforcement felines; the US government knows about them and when they saw that we were stranded, they sent a small team out to help us. Please don't freak out over the feline version of the Road Rovers."

    Tom grabbed his tool box out of the jeep and he strode up by the stalled car. "Hopefully it isn't as bad as you think, ma'am. Just call me Tom." And he went to the front of the car and began to work under the hood.

    Michelle smiled. "He seemed pretty nice, Michael. We used to have a mouser who looked like Tom when we lived in that suburb. But since moving to the farm, times have been tough for us. If I could find a more decent job, then I wouldn't have to answer to that slave driver at the Concordia newspaper office."

    At that moment, three vehicles arrived at the stalled location. One was obviously Crusader's personal vehicle which was large enough for the whole team. The second vehicle was the MIB limo from Washington D.C. And the final vehicle was the late to arrive Triple A service that Michelle had called hours earlier.

    The MIB agents stepped over to speak to the Triple A service mechanics and when it seemed that the two were being deceptive, Stage waggled his fingers at the two human mechanics and chanted, [.hturt eht .B.I.M lleT] and soon the Triple A service men were spilling their guts on how Michelle Douglas' boss in Concordia had asked them not to drive out to help her until well after the lunch hour.

    Indigo noticed what was about to happen and he shielded the mother and her son's eyes from the MIB issue memory removal device just in time as a massive flash bulb type of effect occurred to the rear of the vehicles. Apparently the space felines were immune to the effect. It only worked on humans. Indigo then spoke with Crusader on how Ms. Douglas needed a new job since her boss was trying to get rid of her and how she agreed that in exchange for getting her car repaired, she would let her son play baseball with them. Then the MIB agents were approaching the car as the Triple A service men were driving away back to Salina, Kansas. Crusader intercepted them this time as he explained the woman's offer in regards to the car and her son.

    "We can give her a new job in Felis City, and then her son Michael can try out for our baseball team. Indigo tells me that the boy likes our uniforms because they are cleaner than the Swat Kats' uniforms. As we told you over the galactic communication link, we are good kitties. We want to give these two a chance and if it doesn't pan out, then the mind wipe device can be used. She is about to be out of work at the Concordia newspaper office anyway so she needs a new job."

    One of the two MIB agents said, "We will give her a chance, Crusader. But we will allot payment funds for her; we know you cats use Follars which have no value on Earth."

    End of Chapter Two.

      Chapter Three: Take This Job And Shove It.

      A few minutes later, Tom pulled himself out from under the hood of the family car. "Give 'er a try, Ms. Douglas! I found out what was wrong and I fully repaired it!"

      Crusader was saying to Michelle, "The MIB agents will escort you up to Concordia where they will add credibility to your resignation from the corrupted newspaper. I only say that since your ex-boss instructed Triple A not to respond to your call until well after lunch. That seems mighty suspicious. Was there a news story you were going to add to the paper that would have made the newspaper, or someone connected to it, look bad?"

      Michelle replied, "A former Chicago Mob boss moved into Concordia some years before and apparently he controls most of the region known as Tornado Alley. Apparently he even has the ability to put a stop to news stories that would reveal his background to the public. Since my ex-boss made me miss my deadline, I will turn over this news story to the Men In Black team and let them decide what to do about the crooked man. I am sure the government would love to know where Kernaghan McGee disappeared to after he fled Chicago."

      Both MIB agents arched an eye at the mention of that name. One commented, "You play a dangerous game, Ms. Douglas."

      She opened her briefcase and pulled out the news story she had typed up in regards to the man in question and she pulled the entire file with photos out and she handed it to the MIB Agents, who slowly began to look over the evidence. Michelle then started the car and said, "It is purring like a kitten. Thanks, Tom; I owe you one."

      Tom smiled and stood there creating a doodle with one foot on the pavement as he swished his tail. "I love mechanics, Ms. Douglas. Do we still get to play with your son as you agreed upon earlier?"

      Michelle nodded her head as she reached over and ruffled her fingers over Tom's head fur between his ears. "That was the agreement. And I look forward to the job you boys and girls are arranging for me in Felicity. I know you said 'Felis City' but to ease most human minds, it might be better to spell the road sign outside of your city as F-E-L-I-C-I-T-Y. Felicity Kansas. It would help to disguise what your city really was. Perhaps set up a highway-side service station to tend to customers who might have similar problems out this way. The closest cities are quite a ways away from here."

      Crusader then asked, "Earlier you called this region Tornado Alley. What does that mean, ma'am?"

      Michael pulled out his laptop and opened it up to show the cats a downloaded documentary file on tornadoes and how they are formed. "Wow... I actually have 5 bars out here today. Normally the Internet service along this highway is between zero to two bars. I cannot understand why we have such a strong signal out here today."

      Stage smiled. "Felis City has a communications satellite station built into our television broadcast center. It also has the ability to boost cellphone signals as well as other wireless Internet services as long as the person is near our city. However, we can also monitor all communications for security purposes."

      Crusader remarked, "Tornadoes look destructive. I guess it is a good thing our fortress city has anti-attack shielding that would protect us from these horrifying forces of nature. And yes, Ms. Douglas, we have tested it against star ship attacks."

      Michelle said, "I better get going with the MIB agents; Michael, you can stay here with Crusader and the others. I did promise that you could."

      One hour later, Michelle and the two MIB agents walked into the Concordia newspaper office where Ms. Douglas packed up her belongings from her desk as she purged her personal data, cookies, and bookmarks out of the desktop computer before she walked into the editor's office and said, "Mr. Hardwick; I am hereby tendering my resignation from this newspaper effective as of one hour ago. Making me miss my deadline freed me up to accept a government employment position with another newspaper firm. You won't have me to push around anymore; but you were going to fire me anyway. And you can keep your crooked severance pay as well. I have already cleaned out my belongings and I am now going to take my leave. Good day, Hardwick." And she turned and walked back out to where her desk was as she picked up the box with her belongings and she carried it out of the building.

      Mr. Hardwick almost ran after her but as he started to come out of his office, he saw the two MIB agents walking with the former employee. "Oh crap! She wasn't kidding! I need to tell Mr. K what just happened. But I need to wait until they fully leave first."

      The second MIB agent placed a pair of dark shades over Michelle's eyes as he said, "Someone is trying to covertly watch us, ma'am. Close your eyes for a moment while we take care of this." And as Michelle closed her eyes, she heard nothing, but all spies got an eye full of the mind wiping MIB issue flash stick device. The agent then removed the shades from Michelle's eyes. "Now let's get back to Felicity, I believe you called it."

      As both cars left Concordia, the editor's phone rang and Hardwick picked up the receiver. "Who is it?"

      The voice on the other end said, "H. This is K. Did you get that news file from the Douglas woman? I just got a report that her car was seen entering and leaving Concordia."

      Hardwick replied, "Douglas who? I don't know any woman called Douglas. And who are you? I don't know anyone named H. nor K."

      Kernaghan who had been spared the mind wipe flash due to being in his high rise office said, "Hardwick, this is Kernaghan at the financial offices. Unless you want me to foreclose on the newspaper, you had better get me that news file that Michelle Douglas was preparing for your newspaper's early edition." And then he hung up the phone as he growled within his office. "That woman will be the downfall of my new empire unless I put a stop to her, but how?"

      But since Michelle was with the MIB agents, there wasn't much anyone could do at the moment.

      End of Chapter Three.
