Answer:  BALKED

(I sure hope bases weren’t loaded!  Great baseball pun.  I’m not going to explain, it unless somebody asks for an explanation.  All of today’s clue words are old favorites.  Two of the jumbles appear to be new, with “dunro” and “curnbh”  having been used before.  The answer letter layout was as good as a six-letter one can be.  If you’re not a baseball fan you may have struggled to get this.  So nice having a full sized cartoon!  The all-star is appropriately blasé, and the owner is an old-school, stereotypical, rich cowboy.  Sorta like Gene Autry.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
