: You didn't used to play baseball did ya? Shit, I know you. You're Merrill Hess! I was there the day you hit that 507-footer over the left field wall, set the record. Man, that thing had a motor on it. It's still the record right? Merrill
: Got the bat at home on the wall. SFC Cunningham
: You've got two minor league home-run records, don't ya? Merrill
: Five. SFC Cunningham
: Why weren't you in the pros making stacks of cash and getting your toes licked by beautiful women? Lionel Prichard
: 'Cause he has another record most people don't know about. He has the minor league strikeout record. Merrill
: Hello Lionel. Lionel Prichard
: Merrill's a class-A screw up. He would just swing that bat as hard as he could every time. Didn't matter what the coaches said, didn't matter who was on base. He would just whip that bat through the air as hard as he could. Looked like a lumberjack chopping down a tree. Merrill here has more strikeouts than any two players. SFC Cunningham
: You really got the strikeout record? Merrill
: Felt wrong not to swing.
: I've got it figured. I've had two separate folk tell me that there have been strangers around. Can't tell what they look like, 'cause they're staying the shadows... covert-like. Nobody's been hurt yet, and that's the giveaway. Merrill
: I see. SFC Cunningham
: It's called "probing". It's a military procedure. You send in a reconnaissance group, very small... to check things out. Not to engage, but to evaluate the situation... evaluate the level of danger. Make sure things are all clear. Merrill
: Clear for what? SFC Cunningham
: For the rest of them.
