[Enter Two Umpires]
Umpire 2 Hail Granato!
Umpire 1 I give you greeting, Antonio.
Thou hast the starting lineups?
Umpire 2 Ay. The batting orders duly signed
by managers both.
Umpire 1 ‘Tis well. What o’clock ist?
Umpire 2 ‘Tis at the stroke of two.
[Trumpets sound]
Umpire 1 Hark! The players come. To our
appointed places shall we go, you at first
and I behind the plate. This game
depends on how you make your call.
Farewell! until you hear me cry “Play ball!”
