EXT.	A SURBURBAN LITTLE LEAGUE FIELD

SOUND:	The crack of a bat against a ball. Runners advance.

EXT.	HOME PLATE AND THE THIRD BASE LINE

DEKE, the boy in the picture, comes tearing down the line. He slides
as the catcher receives the ball. The catchers fast, but DEKE sides
under the tag attempt.

                           UMPIRE
	         Safe!

EXT.	THE FIELD, A WIDER SHOT	

The COACH makes his way through the mob, mock-scowling.

                            COACH
                  Who gave you the green light, boy?

                            DEKE (grinning)
                  My conscience, Coach.

They all laugh. The COACH finally grins.

                            COACH
                  Come on...sodas. Iím buying.

He leads them toward a soda machine by the backstop. In the b.g., along
the first-base line, we see a pitching machine. The COACH goes toward
the Pepsi machine while DEKE and the other kids talk or pick up
equipment. He drops a couple of quarters into it and pushes a button.
Cans suddenly spew out of all the delivery sockets. This is funny, but
no joke. One of the cans hits a kid in the gut. He falls down,
moaning. Another strikes the COACH in the balls, he collapses,
screaming. The boys are stunned. A couple go toward the COACH.

EXT.		 THE PEPSI MACHINE

Spewing cans.

EXT.		 THE PITCHIMG MACHINE

It jerks into life and suddenly begins to throw fastballs at a rate
only a bit slower than a Browning machine-gun.

EXT.		 THE BOYS

They are under attack. Several are hit, most glancingly, one or two
severely--one kid runs off, screaming, with blood pouring through the
fingers he has pressed to his mouth.

DEKE lifts an arm and takes a ball on the arm.

                              1ST BOY
                    What's happening?

                              DEKE
	            I donít know!

EXT.		THE PITCHING MACHINE 

Spitting out balls

EXT.		THE BOYS 

One is hit in the temple and drops like a stone. The others run...
except for DEKE, he starts toward the COACH.
  	
EXT. THE COACH	

He gets to his knees.

                           COACH
	          No! Get away!

EXT. THE PEPSI MACHINE
	
It spits a can at supersonic speed.

EXT. DEKE AND THE COACH	

                           COACH
	          Get--

The can hits him in the back of the head. He falls forward.

A baseball hits DEKE on the shoulder. He turns and heads toward the
place where most of the others have gone: a chain-link fence at one
side of the ball-field where bikes have been parked. A tall, rickety 
scoreboard stands nearby.

SOUND:	A rising ENGINE SNARL.

A municipal street-washing machine comes crashing through the score-
board and heads for two of the boys who are already pedaling away.

EXI.	THE TWO ESCAPING BOYS	

They look back, scream, swerve in differert directions.

EXT.	THE STREET-WASHER	

It swerves after one of the boys...and runs him down.

EXT.	DEKE	

He winces away from this, horrified...and then, runs for the bikes.
He gets on his, mounts up, and pedals away, looking back over his
shoulder to make sure the street-washer isnít following him. All the
others have already left.

EXT.	THE PlTCHlNG MACHINE

It stops throwing.

THE BALL-FIELD	

Thrown balls and cans of soda lie all over the infield, The COACH and
several boys, are hit either by cans or balls, lie either dead or
unconscious.

EXT.	THE PEPSI MACHINE

EXT.	HOME PLATE	

The can hits in front of it...rolls onto it...and stops. First can
of Pepsi in history to make a home run.
