  Two buddies Bob and Earl were two of the biggest baseball 
fans in America.  Their entire adult lives, Bob and Earl 
discussed baseball history in the winter, and they pored
over every box score during the season. They went to 60 games 
a year. They even agreed that whoever died first would try to 
come back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven.
  One summer night, Bob passed away in his sleep after 
watching the Yankee victory earlier in the evening.
  He died happy. 
  A few nights later, his buddy Earl awoke to the sound of 
Bob's voice from beyond.
  "Bob, Is that you?" Earl asked.
  "Of course it me," Bob replied.
  "This is unbelievable!" Earl exclaimed. "So tell me, is 
there baseball in heaven?"
  "Well, I have some good news and some bad news for you. 
Which do you want to hear first?"
  "Tell me the good news first."
  "Well, the good news is that yes there is baseball in 
heaven, Earl."
  "Oh, that is wonderful! So what could possibly be the 
bad news?"
  "You're pitching tomorrow night."

  Coach Jones called the young lad in from center field 
during a Little League game for a conference.
  "See here Larry," said the coach, "you know the principles 
of good sportsmanship that the Little League practices.  You 
also know we don't tolerate temper tantrums, shouting at the 
umpire, or abusive language.  Do I make myself clear?"
  "Yes, sir," replied Larry.
  "Well, then Larry," sighed Coach Jones, "would you please 
try to explain it to your mother?"

  Larry loves baseball...and perhaps too much!!  His Mom
insisted that he make an appointment with a psychiatrist.  
The doc questioned him on what his problem was?
  Larry said, "It's baseball. I always dream about baseball...
nothing but baseball!"
  "Don't you ever dream about girls?" the doc asked.
  "Oh NO! NEVER!" he replied.  "I'd lose my turn at bat!"


Spring Fever

Every year, about this time, I cannot fight the urge,
To organize a softball game. It's my yearly hormone surge.
This year is no exception, I oiled my mitt today,
I cannot fight the urge to get a ball game underway.

I need to test my body out, to hit and run and slide,
I need to tag a batter out. I need to burst with pride.
I need to test a theory out. A notion not sublime,
That all those hours spent in the gym were not a waste of time.

One would think that all those classes I teach throughout the week,
Would render me in awesome shape. All slim and trim and sleek.
Step classes caused my thighs to swell with muscle I ne'er can hide,
I should run those bases fast, deke a baseman with my slide.

And all that other body work: bench presses, squats, and curls,
Combined with all those triceps lifts - my arms resemble burls,
Should merge to give me batting strength, while swinging at the plate.
The fielders running down my drives will show chagrin and hate.

And all that cardiovascular work will prove that I am fit.
Enhanced lung power will doubtless add velocity to my spit.
But there is one thing I cannot change, as I wind up to hurl,
In spite of all that training, I still throw like a girl. 

  A sensational new shortstop was being interviewed by the press.  
The trouble was, the guy spoke so quietly no one could hear him.  
One of them finally asked the coach, "What's the matter with him?"
  "Nothing at all," replied the coach.  "That's just the way the
rookie mumbles."

  This is National Little League Baseball Week. I played Little 
League baseball. My dad was so proud he had my protective cup 

  I'll never forget the Little League game when I got hurt. 
I went to sleep and fell off the bench. After that my mother 
made me wear a bench belt.

  My mother was always afraid it would rain. I had to play 
every game in galoshes. Ever try to run in galoshes?

  Mom never missed a game. She vacuumed the dugout. Waxed 
the bench. Watered the petunias in the on-deck circle.

  We had the only ballpark in town with satin bases. And a 
doily on home plate that said, "Home Sweet Home."

  The umpire crew for a baseball game consists of four men. 
While games have been played with only 3, some crews take an 
extra man along in the event of injury/sickness/etc.
  To keep from being bored, sometimes this extra man wanders 
around the stadium to enjoy the game from different vantage 
  One night, the extra umpire tripped & fell from the second
tier of a grandstand.
  An article in the paper reported on his demise...
"The Decline & Fall of the Roaming Umpire." 

  The scene was Mount Olympus, where Bacchus, the Greek god of 
wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities 
-- Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced 
god of doors and beginnings. Everyone overdid it, more or less. 
Ceres at one point was staggering and turning in circles; Janus, 
equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared 
that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. .... 
This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a 

  Tommy Lasorda, Dodger manager, when asked in 1981 what terms 
Mexican-born pitching sensation Fernando Valenzuela might settle 
for in his upcoming contract negotiations:

under there?"

 -- Red Sox pitcher Bill Lee, whose team had blown six games
against the Yankees late in the 1978 season
  "The last time I saw anything like this I was playing for 
Tastee Freeze in the Little League."
 -- Houston Astros pitcher Dave Smigh, after his team fell 
behind the Cincinnati Reds by 14 runs -- in the first inning.

  "When Charlie Finley had his heart operation it took eight hours.
Seven just to find his heart."
 -- Oakland A's pitcher Steve McCatty, 1981

  "He makes too many senseless errors. He has this little 
gong that goes off, saying, 'Hey, this time I'll do something 
different.'  That's when I swallow my tobacco."
 -- San Francisco Giants manager Charlie Fox, on Tito Fuentes, 
his second baseman, 1973

  "I get tired of hearing my ballplayers bellyache all the time. 
They should sit in the press box sometime and watch themselves

 -- St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Enos "Country" Slaughter, 
on general manager Branch Rickey, 1934

have him bat seventh and say he's overweight."

    Steinbrenner (a.k.a. Babe Ruthless)

  "A shave, please, but don't cut my throat. I may want to do it 
later myself."
 -- Casey Stengel to his barber, when Stengel managed the Brooklyn
    Dodgers in 1935

chew and he doesn't stay out late -- and he still can't hit."
 -- Casey Stengel as Yankees manager in 1956, on second baseman

  A visiting salesman noticed a ball game in progress in a small 
town.  He wandered to the outfield fence and asked the fielder 
what the score was.
  "Twenty-two to nothing....their favor" the outfielder replied.
  "Sounds like it's a little one-sided," said the salesman.
  "Not too sure," the outfielder grunted.  "We ain't batted yet."

  The hot-shot sophomore pitcher at an Iowa Tech baseball game
was in trouble.  The bases were loaded and there was only one out.

said, "I struck this guy out last time."

was earlier in this same inning."

for three innings...

  All the players are laughing, until the horse comes to bat. At 
this point, the horse grabs the bat, and everyone quiets down. 
They stare at the horse. 
  The pitcher, just shrugs his shoulders, and throws the ball 
toward home plate, when astonishingly, the horse hits the ball 
deep in the outfield. 
  The horse just stands there and does not move. The manager then 
yells at the baseball scout to tell the horse to run to first base.

  Three baseball fans leave the stadium after a game and come across a 
dead, naked woman lying in the middle of the street. After they call the
cops, they each take off their baseball caps and place them on the dead 
woman out of respect and to cover her private parts until the cops arrive.
  The first fan places his Boston Red Sox cap over her left breast, the 
second places his Phillies cap on her right breast and the third fan 
places his Yankees cap on her pubic area. The cops finally arrive, and 
the officers take statements from the fans to find out what happened. 
After explaining that they found her naked and covered her up with their
caps, the cop went over to examine the body.
  He briefly lifted the Red Sox cap, and quickly replaced it; then he 
lifted the Phillies cap, and also quickly replaced it. However, when he 
lifted the Yankees cap, he stared and stared for what seemed to be two 
or three minutes. Finally, he let the cap drop, walked away, wrote in 
his notebook, then returned and lifted the Yankees cap once again and 
stared for a long time.  As he was walking away the second time, the 
fans were curious and stopped him and asked him why he spent so much 
time looking at the woman's genitalia, and he said, "It's the first 
time I've seen anything but an asshole under a Yankees cap."
