When Bat hits a home run for a baseball team, the president of the United States decrees that all animals should be allowed to play sports with humans. After this announcement, animals are playing all sorts of sports. Then, when humans are asked what they think about this new announcement, the answers vary from, "It's a good idea!" to, "It's not such a good idea after all." In the end of the book, readers will find out that the humans elected an animal Seal as president, which is why the decree came out.
