SECRET ORIGINS OF THE SUPER-SPEEDSTERS
PART
SIX: PLAY BALL!

Welcome to the greatest game of ALL-STAR baseball ever played! Reader, if you love comics and baseball -- your moment has arrived! The world has NEVER seen anything like this -- and probably never will again. This is not only the greatest BASEBALL game ever played, it's also the greatest game in SPORTS HISTORY! They'll be talking about THIS one for decades to come, maybe longer!

OK reader, we're ready to rock. Watch as the superstars of baseball, comic books and animation battle it out -- the BLUE TEAM faces off against the RED TEAM! And now... PLAY BALL!

Leading off for the BLUE team is Big Blue himself... Superman!
Sounds like the Man of Steel is getting some professional advice...
X
HERE WE GO! This is a more exciting day than April 18, 1923! Superman is known to have a good eye at the plate. He's GOT muscles... but is he a Super-Mantle?
X
NO! The Man of Steel finds himself bedeviled by three satanic screwballs!
X
Next up, Eel O'Brian aka Plastic Man. He’s known for reaching pitches on the outside of the plate, so instead pitcher Satan ties him up and inside with high heat. Plas swings with such force, he wraps his own arms around himself, and he’s...
X
The last hope for for the BLUE team in this first inning is the Bodyless Uniform. Because players change teams so often, the saying in sports is that fans root for the uniform and not the players. But this is really taking it to extremes! He gets his weight behind his swing and hits it deep!
X
...but Casper, the friendly outfielder, who catches the ball WAY WAY WAY OUT in right field, so far he can almost see the ghost of Mickey Mantle, for the BLUE team's third out.

RED TEAM AT BAT

Now the RED team is at bat, with Captain Marvel at the plate. It appears he’s not using the usual Louisville Slugger bat. This one looks even more illegal than Sammy Sosa’s corked bats! The Big Red Cheese is looking to pull a homer down the left field line…
X
Bugs Bunny, no relation to Rabbit Maranville, is pitching for the BLUE team. Bugs lets fly with a powerful, paralyzing, percussion pitch!
X
Cap smacks the ball in the gap, through Casper’s legs (and the rest of his body, actually) and rounds the bases. SHAZAM! But there’s a play at the plate and…
X
Next up for the RED team is the Dark Knight Detective himself, Batman! The Dynamic Duo created quite a stir when they arrived, carelessly driving the Batmobile right over third base, causing fans to rush onto the field!
X
Earlier today, old Bats hit more dingers in the home run derby than Josh Hamilton in the 2008 derby at Yankee Stadium -- but can Bats hit one in the actual game?
X

NO! Apparently the “Bat” in Batman doesn’t refer to baseball.
X
As Batman walks off the field, a crazed fan tries to steal the ball he struck out on, but ANOTHER crazed fan, a would-be superhero, jumps in and captures him with a web-bat!
X

Next up for the RED team is Gorilla Baseball Player, star of the Korean film Mr. Go, who hits the ball so hard to left field that it actually lodges in the wall...
X
Despite his third base coach dangling a banana as incentive, it still takes Gorilla Baseball Player about 10 minutes to lumber around the bases while the left fielder and center fielder try to dislodge the baseball. There’s another play at the plate! This could get hairy. Gorilla is SAFE! The score is now 1-0, with the RED team in the lead.
X
The next batter, Tony the Tiger, does not do so grrrrreat! Maybe he should have eaten Wheaties this morning instead. He pops up to center field, and the first inning ends with the RED team ahead 1—zip.
