    [Crusader Cats] CCMD-02 Major League Improvement

    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: Major League Practice.

    Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri

    Defender sat to one side as he watched Indigo speak to the Pitcher of the Kansas City Royals, Mike Minor. The entire purpose of being in Kauffman Stadium was to get used to Earthian Major League Baseball. The Royals were using this session in preparation for an upcoming game that they had coming up with another team.

    Indigo shook hands with Mike and said, "Thanks for helping us law cats in learning the major league baseball rules and regulations. We really love baseball and play whenever we get the chance."

    Mike replied, "Anything to help the government. Um, we have a lion mascot known as Slugger but he's nowhere near as hot as your pinch hitter sitting over there."

    Indigo smiled. "That is Defender. We just signed him up last week. If he was a decade older, then you guys might have latched on to him instead. He can hit any ball that is thrown to him. He obliterated two of our wooden bats during practice with his amazing hits. We really love him."

    The Umpire then shouted, "Felicity Felines! You're up to bat first! Keep it clean, okay?"

    Indigo smiled. "We're good kitties on the diamond!" And he headed off to join his team in the dugout.

    In the dugout, Indigo said to Defender, "Keep the hits normal. No bat destruction like you did last week. I know those were accidents but you said you liked this team. So just play normally. Not to mention, that new pitcher said he likes how hot you look."

    Defender then remarked, "For the record, Indigo, Tom and Stage... all of these guys are straight. So regardless of how their groins may smell during game play, keep your eyes on what's important; don't be like Antonio."

    Tom and Stage nodded their heads. They were glad that Defender had warned them about the other players.

    During the game itself, Mike Minor found pitching to the cats as one might expect. They were like other humans. But when he got to pitch to Defender, there were two distractions that caused some issues. One, it was like looking a Tails of Sonic the Hedgehog, and two, his tails often flicked of their own accord which made him look even hotter than ever. It brought out the animal in other humans. The pitcher found that he had to shift his pants and shorts a few times when Defender was in view. Tom and Stage knew what that usually meant. They felt the same way about their new boy. But they were behaving themselves so they could learn professional Major League Baseball on Earth. When the batting session had ended and Mike found it impossible to strike Defender out even once. This cat would hit every ball sent his way. Including one ball that flew up and when it came back down, it was hit out of the park.

    During the exchange of players to the outfield, the Royals noticed that Defender was returning the dugout rather than taking the field. When Mike asked Indigo about this, he got told about how Defender was hired to fill in for Jazco during a time when Jazco had been unfairly accused of what seemed like a crime and when they cleared him, they had this extra player in their numbers. So they made him into a pinch hitter. He could still fill in for an outfielder during those just in case situations.

    Later in the game, Lynna was in the announcer's booth as she was saying, "Bottom of the ninth in this practice game so our cats can get used to Earthian Baseball and the Royals are several runs in the lead as would be expected. They are professionals. The Royals new pitcher Mike Minor seems to be over his shock of how hot Defender is on the field. And he is performing better than ever or as good as his team expected him too. Jazco is up to bat; a shame it is not Defender's turn. Bases are loaded and even if Jazco manages to hit the ball into the outfield, the Crusader Cats are too far behind to actually win today's game. Earthian Baseball is trickier than we thought it would be. I guess baseball is balanced no matter what planet you play on. Here comes the pitch and Jazco let it fly past him. I think he is sizing up the pitcher. Second throw and Jazco hit the ball. The center fielder almost caught the ball. It tipped over the edge of his mitt and now he is bending down and rapidly throwing the ball back toward the infield. The Shortstop caught the ball and he threw it to the pitcher and he in turn has thrown it to the catcher. The runner was tagged out and Jazco has smartly stopped on Third Base. And that's it, sports fans. The Royals have won."

    Crusader was then meeting up with the Royals Manager as he shook the man's hand. "Thanks for putting us through the rules and regulations, Mr. Matheny. Back on our home world, we played baseball all the time; but after we lost the world series due to underhanded deception, we chose to come to Earth to play baseball and continue our law enforcement ways. We are not like the Mighty Ducks nor the Swat Kats. We don't blow things up."

    Matheny remarked, "For a bunch of law cats, it was fun to play with your team; although I won't lie when I say that Defender is one HOT CAT."

    Crusader grinned. "We like him too. But we are good kitties. We need to get back to Felicity to practice with these rules you taught us. Any advice on what we should do in the meantime since we may not be major league ready as yet."

    Matheny stated, "There is the Minor League if you feel you still need some practice. We would love to play against the Crusaders in an official match. As you said, this was practice. I am glad you want to play ball by the book. Too many new players forget that little rule."

    Crusader asked, "Do the Minor Leagues play World Series games?"

    Matheny honestly replied, "Not in the way the Major Leaguers do."

    Crusader remarked, "Then that is no good for us. We were a Major League team back home and we want to continue to be one. Perhaps we can improve for the next time we meet."

    End of Chapter One.
