Le Beaux Aux Follies

"Golfed the sinker. Single. First and third."

"Usually, you're a goat for chasing such a far out pitch, but that kind of skill bears it out. So instead he looks like a first-ballot Hall of Famer."

"Total limp-wristed delivery, making like an air foil or some other such. Depleting the ball's momentum.  It drops completely off the map!"

"Here comes two RBI, skip."

"Knock one in so we can go get our hotdogs."

"All those sunflower seeds. It looks like the bottom of a birdcage around the batting coach. Maybe we should lay down some newsprint so its easier to clean up."

"He gets caught stealing, he ain't riding in the bus with us tonight."

This is overlapping dialogue in the style of film legend Robert Altman. Presented here, the effect is a list instead of a mileu like Altman used often. The film presented isn't a film at all, but a treatment from the back of my mind called "Stickball", which is about amateur players being drafted after a strike by the players' union.
