Saffron's Softball Spectacular is a fan-made episode written by CartoonLover, Disneydude15, Magic-is-cute, and Rigsrigsrigs10918.
Saffron holds a softball tournament at Poundsville. But the competition has plans to cheat while looking innocent.
(As the sun rises at the farm division, Saffron wakes up, leaves her tent, and puts up a flier for softball tryouts then exercise a few steps.)
Saffron: (Narrating) June 28. It was the day of the Seasonal Softball Tournament and I was quite ecstatic for that kind of time.
(Lucy, in her pajamas, sleepily approaches Saffron.)
Lucy: Saffron, try to slow up on the exercising, please. It's only 8 AM.
Saffron: (Stretching her legs) Sorry, Grandma. I was kind of excited for the seasonal softball tournament which sign-ups are today.
Lucy: Well, it's only fair, since you... did you say softball? I'd like to participate, but It's for those that are 18 dog years or less.
Saffron: Well, grandma, If you want me to, I can get Wishbone to make you and/or grandpa young as your pups. You're free to say no, if you want.
Lucy: Well, if you say so....
Saffron: Well, it is a yes-or-no question. I'll give you some time to decide as I talk to grandpa.
Lucy: Ok. (Walks off.) Kids! Time to get up! Saffron has something to tell you.
(The pups enter.)
Sandy: What is it, Saffy?
Saffron: Anyone wanting to sign-up for Softball?
Mandy: I don't think so.
Randy: Thanks, anyway.
Candy: Saffron, last season, we had four wins out of fifteen.
Saffron: Well, I know it wasn't our best season on spring...
Andy: Actually, it was.
Saffron: Well, We'll have better luck this summer.
Tandy: And what makes you sure?
Saffron: Well... (Thinking) I'd better not tell the kids that their mom and dad are thinking of participating. however... (Out Loud) It's possible that the Farm Division Team will have Two potential candidates.
Pups: Candidates? (Thought Clouds appear over the Pups heads, and Candy thinks a Chinchilla comes at bat and won't swing.)
Voice: Fourth Ball. Take Your base. (The Chinchilla runs.)
Andy: Maybe... (thinks a pup with a ninja outfit will evade the opposing team's ball, as HE flips on the bases.)
Mandy: Perhaps... (Thinks a Pup with a Tree-sized Baseball bat getting ready to swing.)
Saffron: No, but good guesses.
Tandy: Well, If Saffy's confident that the Farm Division will win... (The Six Pups sign up on the paper.)
(Under the Farm Division's House's porch, Saffron comes out with a box as Rusty watches.)
Rusty: And what's in the Box, Saffron? Your Softball Cards?
Saffron: No, It's something special. some time ago When I came for a visit to the farm division during a thunderstorm... (Flashback to a Stormy Night at the Farm Division as Saffron ran to the Barn.) I wasn't informed of a terrible storm that came to Poundsville and the surrounding areas. (Saffron tries to open the Barn door even through kicking it, but was locked and to no avail.) So, In hopes of not getting struck by lightning, I crawled under a rock for cover. then... (A Lightning bolt strikes a tree branch.) I saw the branch and it got Me thinking. that I could use as a battering ram... (Saffron barely lifts up the branch, then places it safely on the barn, and jumps inside.) but I saw an open window on the barn and I used the Branch as a stepladder into safety. (The Flashback ends with a thunderclap.)
Rusty: You mean the banging on the barn door was You?
Saffron: Well, I couldn't scream for help since the thunder would drown Me out. Inside this box, is something special I wanted to give to Your Pups. (Opens the box to reveal a slew of Baseball jackets.)
Saffron: and I also made a couple of jackets for You and Grandma. It's not finished Yet, but It will be tomorrow. furthermore, Feel free to say "No", but have You ever wanted to play with Your pups in Their size?
Lucy: Well, to be honest, we haven't before.
Saffron: Yes. Now, Sixteen Teams, Each one faces fifteen different teams. highest total of wins, wins the tournament. Wanna join.
Lucy: Thank You. but the way Me and Rusty are, We're growing old, and We're not as energetic as We used to.
Saffron: Again, take Your time deciding whether You and Grandpa want to join the time. But, out of curiosity, I never saw You in Your younger years.
Lucy: Well, Rusty and I were born in a Medical Lab.
Saffron: M-Medical Lab? You mean You were junior Doctors? (Thinks of Lucy and Rusty as Doctors inside a thought cloud.)
Lucy: Ha ha ha ha. No, Saffron. (shoos away the thought cloud.) We never had the thought of being Doctors.
Saffron: Well, did You have any hobbies when You left the Lab?
Lucy: Let me see... (A flashback of Rusty and Lucy's Childhood as They were travelling together.) Well, We've had some experiences.
Saffron: Oh. and have You had any experience with Kickball? The same number of Pups and Dogs are equal. Well, We've got three more days until the tournament. Now, You were saying?
Lucy: Well... (Flashback to Lucy and Rusty as Pups at an empty baseball diamond) We came to a Baseball Diamond that was going to be condemned. (Young Rusty tears off the "Condemned" Sign from the entrance.)
Young Rusty: Hey, Lucy, let's play ball!
Young Lucy: A good suggestion, Rusty.
Young Rusty: I'll swing, you pitch.
Young Lucy: Okay.
Young Rusty: Oh! Hold on. (puts on an Umpire's mask, and gives one to Young Lucy.)
Young Lucy: Thanks.
(They play ball.)
Lucy: We've had a lot of fun in Our youth playing ball.
Saffron: Well, did You have a photo of the occasion? or at least a photo of You as Puppies?
Rusty: Actually, no.
Lucy: Things were going good, until....
(Young Rusty notices something as the sun began to rise.)
Young Rusty: Uh-Oh. (a Group of wrecking balls and bulldozers near the diamond.) Lucy, let's take our leave as we get as much baseball equipment.
Young Lucy: What? We couldn't.
Young Rusty: Hey, Waste not, Want not, Luce.
Young Lucy: Good point.
Lucy: We ran away from the diamond and got as much equipment as We could carry, as the diamond was being demolished.
Saffron: Oh. I'm sorry.
Saffron: And I promised your pups that I had a couple of secret weapons for Their Softball team.
Lucy: What's that?
Saffron: Well, Promise You won't fly off the handle.
(At the softball field, visitors come to the game as the Farm Division Pups and Cloudy Cats practice before the game starts. then Rusty and Lucy come to the dugout wearing co-coach uniforms comes to the Farm Division pups.)
Mandy: Where's Saffy?
Lucy: Well, Your Descendant Promised You a couple of secret weapons, right?
Rusty: Well, She entrusted Us to be co-coaches.
(Eight and a half innings later, The score is Farm Division 5, Cloudy Cats 9. as the bases are loaded with Andy, Sandy, and Tandy and one out for the farm division.)
(Rusty signals Sandy to run to home base, and Sandy runs. the cloudy cat pitcher notices and tries to out Randy at Home Base, but Randy makes it.)
Announcer: And the score is Farm 6, Cats 9! Next is Randall of the Farm Division! (The Cat Pitcher throws and Randy successfully whacks the ball out of the park.) and it's a tie! Nine-all!
Saffron: (To Lucy) OK, we're tied. Just get a homerun, and We'll go on to face the Beligerent Bowsers! otherwise, We'll go to extra innings. No Pressure.
Lucy: Ok. Since Randy got a three-runner...
Cloudy Cat Pitcher: Hmm. (Pitches the Ball, but Mandy didn't swing.)
Spectator: No, It wasn't!
