Game 1: Pre-Raphaelite Baseball Club at Paradise Pisces. November 25, 1999

Pre-Raphaelites Take Series Opener, 7-3
Lead Series 1-0
The Pre-Raphaelites won their fifth straight post-season game in a strong showing against the Pisces who own the best record in cosmic baseball this season. While still a little shaky on defense (William Morris needs to apply some glue to the inside of his enormous firstbaseman's glove) the P.R.B. continues to show dominant offensive strength.

Scoring Summary

2nd Inning: P.R.B. - Painter Ford Maddox Brown leads the inning off with a solo home run. Poet William Bell Scott, influenced early on by the Spasmodics hits a double. The woeful Elizabeth Siddall, paradigm of the Pre-Raphaelite woman, hits a 2-run home run. [P.R.B. leads 3-0].

3rd Inning: P.R.B.- Ford Maddox Brown, who wrote the sonnet The Love of Beauty leads off with a walk. William Bell Scott, who wrote that poetry must affect us like music or wine, hits a triple, scoring Brown. [P.R.B. leads 4-0].

5th Inning: Pisces- The great musician Fats Domino whacks a two-out triple. Speed freak Bobby Unser gets on base when William Morris, co-founder and proprietor of The Oxford and Cambridge Magazine, drops the ball at first base. It's unearned but it's a run. [P.R.B. leads 4-1].

6th Inning: P.R.B.- W. Morris, who also founded the society for the Protection of Ancient Buldings, atones for his 5th inning error and gets a single. Painter Edward Burne-Jones, husband of Georgina Macdonald, also hits a single. Maria Zambaco, a frequent model for the P.R.B. painters also hits a single scoring Morris. Pisces- Novelist John Steinbeck and playwright Hendrik Ibsen hit singles. Actress Drew Barrymore hits a 2-RBI single scoring Steinbeck and Ibsen. [P.R.B. leads 5-3].

7th Inning- Dante Rossetti, pitcher and leading force behind the P.R.B., walks. W. Morris doubles and Rossetti scores from first. Burne-Jones hits a single and Morris comes home. [P.R.B. Wins Game 7-3].
