 It's April 25,1976.  The Cubs are at Dodger Stadium.  Rick
 Monday is in center field, and Tommy Lasorda is the third
 base coach.  Professional baseball has chosen this play

Subj:     Tale of a Sport's Mom (S173)
          From: RFSlick in 2000

 It's a chilly Saturday in May.  I could be home sweeping
 cobwebs from the corners of the living room or curled up on
 the couch with a good mystery.  Instead I'm sitting on a cold
 metal bench in the stands of a baseball park in Kirkland,
 Washington.  An icy wind creeps through my heavy winter jacket.
 I blow on my hands, wishing I'd brought my woolen mittens.

 "Mrs. Bodmer?"  It's the coach my son Matthew admires so
 much that he gave up soda pop to impress him with his fitness.
 "I'm starting your son today in right field.  He's worked hard
 this year and I think he deserves the opportunity."

 "Thanks," I say, feeling proud of my son who has given
 this man and this team everything he has.  I know how badly
 he wants this.  I'm glad his hard work is being rewarded.

 Suddenly I'm nervous for him as the team members, in their
 white pinstriped uniforms, trot onto the field.  I search
 for my son's number.  It isn't there.  Instead, Eddie, the
 most inexperienced player on the team, takes right field.  I
 look again, unbelieving.  How can that be?

 I want to run over and ask the coach what's going on, but I
 know Matthew wouldn't like that.  I've learned the proper
 etiquette for moms;  talking to the coach is not acceptable
 unless he initiates it.

 My son, gripping the chain-link fence in front of the dugout,
 is yelling encouragement to his teammates.  I try to read his
 expression, but I know he, like most males, has learned to
 hide his feelings.  My heart breaks because he has worked so
 hard and received so much disappointment.  I don't understand
 what drives boys to put themselves through this.

 "Atta Boy, Eddie," yells the right-fielder's father, proud
 that his son is starting.  I've seen this same man walk out
 of games in disgust when his son dropped a ball or made a bad
 throw.  But for now, he is proud of his son, who is starting,
 while my son is on the bench.

 By the fourth inning my fingers are stiff from the cold and
 my feet are numb, but I don't care.  Matthew has been called
 into the game.  He stands, chooses a batting helmet, picks up
 a bat and struts out to the plate.  I grip the metal seat.
 He takes a couple of practice swings.  The pitcher looks like
 an adult.  I wonder if anyone has checked his birth certificate.

 Strike one.  "Nice swing!" I yell.  The next pitch is a ball.
 "Good eye!  Good eye!"  Strike two.  I pray.  I cross my
 fingers.  The pitcher winds up.  I hold my breath. Strike three.
 My son's head hangs, and he slowly walks back to the dugout.  I
 wish with all my heart I could help.  But I know there's nothing
 I can do.

 For eight years I've been sitting here.  I've drunk gallons of
 terrible coffee, eaten tons of green hot dogs and salty popcorn.
 I've endured cold and heat, wind and rain.

 Some people may wonder why a sane person would go through this.
 It's not because I want to fulfill my dream of excelling at
 sports through my kids.  I also don't do this for the emotional
 highs.  Of, yes, I've had some.  I've seen my two sons score
 winning goals in soccer, hit home runs in baseball, and spark
 come-from-behind wins in basketball.  I've seen them make some
 incredible leaping catches in football.  But mostly I've seen

 I've waited with them for that phone call telling them they'd
 made the team.  The call that never came.  I've watched coaches
 yell at them.  I've watched them sit on the bench game after
 game.  I've sat in emergency rooms as broken bones were set
 and swollen ankles x-rayed.  I've sat here year after year,
 observing it all and wondering why.

 The game ends.  I stretch my legs and try to stomp life back
 into my frozen feet.  The coach meets with the team.  They
 yell some rallying cry and then descend on their parents.  I
 notice Eddie's dad has big grin and is slapping his son on
 the back.  Matthew wants to get a hamburger.  While I wait
 for him, the coach approaches me.  I can't bring myself to
 look at him.

 "Mrs. Bodmer, I want you to know that's a fine young man you
 have there."  I wait for him to explain why he broke my son's

 "When I told your son he could start, he thanked me and turned
 me down.  He told me to let Eddie start, that it meant more to

 I turn to watch my son stuffing his burger into his mouth.  I
 realize then why I sit in the stands.  Where else can I watch
 my son grow into a man?"

Subj:     Greatest Hitter In The World (S269, S688)
          From: twistedhumor.com in 2002
          Thanks Gayle for the joke.

 A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted
 through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a
 ball and bat.  "I'm the greatest hitter in the world," he

 Then, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.

 "Strike One!" he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and
 said again, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!"  He tossed
 the ball into the air.

 When it came down he swung again and missed. "Strike Two!" he

 The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball
 carefully.  He spit on his hands and rubbed them together.

 He straightened his cap and said once more, "I'm the greatest
 hitter in the world!"  Again he tossed the ball up in the air
 and swung at it. He missed. "Strike Three!"

 "Wow!" he exclaimed. "I'm the greatest PITCHER in the world!"

Subj:     Out By A Hare

 This story was related by a baseball announcer, who
 attributed it to Honus Wagner.

 Way back when Honus played, they didn't have stadium lights
 and when it got dark, you couldn't see what you were doing
 very well.  One time, he was playing in the outfield and the
 ball was hit his way, but he just lost it in the darkness.
 Fortunately, a rabbit was running by at the time and he
 grabbed it and threw it to first for the out.

 This was the very first time anyone was ever thrown out by a

 This video is of one of the most touching moments in sports
 history.  Sara Tucholsky of Western Oregon is up to bat
 against Central Washington. Sara hits her first ever homerun,
 but tears a ligament rounding first.   The umpire stated that
 if her teammates or coaches assisted her she will be declared
 out and if a pinch runner is substituted for her, her homerun
 will be declared a single.  This event won a 2008 ESPY as
 "Best Moment" for its example of great sportsmanship.

Subj:     Bronx Hospitality
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day.com in 1999

 Jose lived in San Juan, and all he ever wanted was to see a
 baseball game in Yankee Stadium.  Jose loved baseball, he
 loved the Yankees.

 He worked and saved and at long last bought a ticket, took a
 plane, but when he got to Yankee Stadium, it was all sold out.
 Not a seat to be had.  Jose pleaded, touched the heart of the
 ticket office and they found him a seat way out in the bleachers
 behind the flagpole.

 Jose saw his baseball game and went back to Puerto Rico, flying
 so high he almost didn't need a plane.

 "Well, Jose," they asked when he returned, "how was it?"

 Jose raved.  The Stadium, the game, the Yankees...  And most of
 all the fans, so friendly, so concerned about him that before
 the game they all stood up and turned to him and sang, "Jose?
 Can you see?"

Subj:     Since The Cubs Won The World Series (S357)

Subj:     Queen Of England Watches Baseball
          From: Bawdy.Net Collage #30

 (Also see 'Scotsman Attends Baseball Game' in SCOTTISH)

 The Queen of England visited America and decided to take
 in one of America's favorite past-times, baseball.  So she
 and her attendants went to a game.  A man in the row in
 front of her had obviously been enjoying the game in fine
 style - read: was half drunk and getting loud.  A batter
 swings and connects with the pitch and the guy jumps up,
 spilling beer, and shouts, "Run you bastard, RUN!"

 "Oh," the Queen says as she blushes and flusters.

 "It's OK," says one of her attendants, "cheering the players
 is part of the game."  The next batter gets up there and
 takes four pitches without moving his bat.  He throws the
 bat down and starts off in a trot towards first base.  The
 Queen jumps out of her chair, spilling Coke, and shouts
 (British accent required:), "Run, you bastard, RUN!!"

 The guy in front of her turns around and says, through a
 half-chewed pretzel,  "Lady, he's got four balls..... "

 "Oh," stammers the Queen, then shouts, "Walk proudly, sir!

Subj:     The Ballgirl Video Is A Fake
          From: Chris in 2008 (S598)

 In the above video of a ballgirl making an amazing catch,
 it is fake footage.  The footage is a shelved commercial
 for Gatorade sports drink.  Gatorade ended its association
 with the agency that created the ad, Element 79, shortly
 after the video was completed and shelved the campaign.

 "We were not planning to release the ball girl video,"
 [Gatorade spokeswoman Jill] Kinney said.  "However, now
 that it's out there, we're thrilled with the response it's

 Kinney said Gatorade doesn't know who posted the video,
 and Element 79 said on its website that it had nothing to
 do with posting the video.

 There is no mention of Gatorade in the video, though there
 is a bottle by the chair where the ball girl sits near the
 end of the clip.  And Gatorade has clearly become associated
 with it, to the company's delight.


 Chris, again thank your for spotting this fake video.

Subj:     Three Baseball Fans And A Nude Body (S37)
          From: Bawdy.Net Collage #200 in 1997

 Three guys are leaving a ball game, and while going to their
 parked car down an alley, spot a naked woman lying on the
 ground, face up.

 Going over to her, they discover that she is dead.  Modestly,
 the first fan puts his Orioles cap over her left breast, while
 the second fan puts his Red Sox cap over the right breast.
 Finally, the last fan puts his Yankees cap over her pussy.

 Eventually, they find a cop to inform him.  Together, they
 walk back to the body, and the cop examines her.  Quickly
 he looks under the Orioles and Sox caps, then under the
 Yankees cap. He makes some notes, then goes back again, and
 again, to look under the Yankees cap.

 One of the fans asks the cop what he's doing.

 The cop responds, "It's been a long time since I've seen
 anything but an Asshole under a Yankeees cap!"

From: Bawdy.Net Collage #201 on 97-10-09
Heard variations of this one.

 In one case an army officer finds the naked woman, takes
 off his hat and covers her pussy with it, and then calls
 the MPs.  The MP is an enlisted man, and the first thing
 he does is lift the hat.  The officer asks him just what
 he thinks he's doing.  Scratching his head, the MP replies,
 "Well, sir, this is the first time I've seen an officer's
 hat without a prick underneath!"

 The three ladies went to their first baseball game.  This
 was something that was an occasion of great excitement to
 them.  To add to the excitement, they smuggled a bottle
 of booze into the game, and started immediately to enhance
 the soft drinks they bought.  It was a good game.

 There was a lot of action on the field and a lot of action
 in the stands.  All too soon, long before the game was over,
 the bottle was nearly empty  and one lady was passed out in
 her seat.

 By now, you should have enough information to be able to
 tell how far along the game is, and what the status of the
 game is.

Subj:     Great Baseball Quotes
          from Long Beach Independent Press-Telegram in 1989

Subj:     Quotes By Yogi Berra (S310, S831)
..........From: pns in 2003

 Lawrence Peter Berra played Major League Baseball for 19 years
 for the New York Yankees.  He played on 10 World Series Champ-
 ionship teams, is a MLB Hall of Famer and has some awe-inspiring 
 stats.  His name is consistently brought up as one of the best
 catchers in baseball history, and he was voted to the Team of
 the Century in 1999.

 Amazing accomplishments aside, they probably aren't how you know
 Lawrence.  You know him as Yogi, a nickname given to him by a
 friend who likened his cross-legged sitting to a yogi.  Yogi is
 famous for his fractured English, malapropisms and sometimes
 nonsensical quotes called Yogi-isms.  He's closing in on 86,
 and there seems to be no end to his fan's love for him.

 Here are 25 Yogi-isms that will make you shake your head and smile.

  1. "It's like deja vu all over again."
  2. "We made too many wrong mistakes."
  3. "You can observe a lot just by watching."
  4. "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."
  5. "Mantle can hit just as good right-handed as he can
     left-handed. He's just naturally amphibious."
  6. "If the world was perfect, it wouldn't be."
  7. "If you don't know where you're going,
     you might end up some place else."
  8. Responding to a question about remarks attributed to him
     that he did not think were his:
     "I really didn't say everything I said."
  9. "The future ain't what it use to be."
 10. "I think Little League is wonderful.
     It keeps the kids out of the house."
 11. On why he no longer went to Ruggeri's, a St. Louis restaurant:
     "Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded."
 12. "I always thought that record would stand until it was broken."
 13. "We have deep depth."
 14. "All pitchers are liars or crybabies."
 15. When giving directions to Joe Garagiola to his 
     New Jersey home, which is accessible by two routes:
     "When you come to a fork in the road, take it."
 16. "Always go to other people's funerals,
     otherwise they won't come to yours."
 17. "Never answer anonymous letters."
 18. On being the guest of honor at an awards banquet:
     "Thank you for making this day necessary."
 19. "The towels were so thick there
     I could hardly close my suitcase."
 20. "Half the lies they tell about me aren't true."
 21. As a general comment on baseball:
     "90% of the game is half mental."
 22. "I don't know (if they were men or women running
     naked across the field), they had bags over their heads."
 23. "It gets late early out there."
 24. Carmen Berra, Yogi's wife asked: "Yogi, you are from St. Louis,
     we live in New Jersey, and you played ball in New York.
     If you go before I do, where would you like me to have
     you buried?"  Yogi's answer: "Surprise me."
 25. And his most famous quote of all. . .
     "It ain't over till it's over."

 And here are nineteen more Yogi-isms.

 When watching a Steve McQueen movie on TV: "He must have
 made that before he died."

 "If people don't want to come out to the ball park,
 nobody's gonna stop 'em."

 "There's nothing like a home opener, whether it's at home
 or on the road."

 After a poor game: "I think they just got through
 marinating the greens."

 When asked what time it is: "Do you mean now?"

 "I usually take a two hour nap from one to four."

 Testifying before a grand jury about a New York Yankees'
 brawl in a nightclub: "Nobody did nothin' to nobody."

 "I am going to buy a Volkswagen or a foreign car."

 New York mayor Lindsay's wife, on a hot day: "You look
 nice and cool, Yogi." Yogi: "You don't look so hot yourself."

 For a spring training drill, Yogi instructed his players
 to "Pair off in threes."

 It's a weird scene.  You win a few baseball games and all
 of a sudden, you're surrounded by reporters an TV men with
 cameras asking you about Vietnam and race relations.
   -- Vida Blue, 1971

 Our [softball] team usually puts the other woman at second
 base, where the maximum possible number of males can get
 there on short notice to help out in case of emergency.  As
 far as I can tell, our second base woman is a pretty good
 baseball player, better than I am, anyway, but there's no
 way to know for sure because if the ball gets anywhere near
 her, a male comes barging over from, say, right field, to
 deal with it.  She's been on the team for three seasons
 now, but the males still don't trust her.  They know, deep
 in their souls, that if she had to choose between catching
 a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she probably would
 elect to save the infant's life, without ever considering
 whether there were men on base.  - Dave Barry, "Sports Is A Drag"
