Mechanically written elaboration of a SF plot idea, this story goes nowhere. Compare Biggle for a similar fear that arcane abilities will destroy the sport.

Non-stop game action of a rather mechanical variety.

High hokum.

Throwaway romance story idea, well-executed of its kind.

Pleasant if over-written magical-realist story.

The man in the couple is an ex-ballplayer himself; the woman suddenly relives her youth. Well-evoked setting.

Interesting look at the pervasiveness of gambling in the game in the decade before the Black Sox.
