Do you know of a story about a planet (possibly earth) that is about to be destroyed by a meteor, so the occupants of the planet build ships and evacuate it, right as the occupants take off the story shifts to a baseball with a layer of "dust" escaping it. Turns out the planet ends up being a baseball, and the dust are the inhabitants.

The entire story takes place between the pitch release and the catch of a non professional baseball game.

  • @Richard could a mod look at the IPs and verify that these are very likely duplicate accounts? – SQB Jul 30 '15 at 10:08
  • @David You should post the same answer here. Maybe at least one of them will get accepted. – user14111 Jul 31 '15 at 2:50
  • @SQB Do mods have that much power?? Maybe Leigh and Katie are sisters and they both heard about this story from their mom? – user14111 Jul 31 '15 at 6:43

This story is from the Marvel Comics anthology Where Creatures Roam, issue #7, from July 1971.
