2 )Then the percussive insult of bats denuding innocent baseballs shatters the nervous pall.

'Pall' could refer to a dark cloud or covering. It could also refer to an environment or envelope of gloom (a meaning that is similar to the first but less literal). The first meaning is what is relevant for the first sentence you have, and the second meaning for the second sentence. Hope it is clear and that this helps.
