Irishman’s First Baseball Game

Striking out in the batter’s box


An Irishman moves to Canada & attends his first baseball game. The first batter approached the batter’s box, took a few swings and then hit a double. Everyone was on their feet screaming, “RUN, RUN.”

The next batter hit a single & the Irishman listened as the crowd again cheered, “RUN, RUN.”

The Irishman enjoyed the game & began screaming with the fans. The third batter came up and four balls went by. The umpire called, “walk” and the batter started his slow trot to first base. The Irishman stood up and screamed, “R-R-Run ye bastard, run!”

The people around him began laughing. Embarrassed, the Irishman sat back down. A friendly fan noted the man’s embarrassment, leaned over and explained, “He can’t run - he’s got four balls.”

The Irishman stood up and screamed, “Walk with pride, laddie.”
