The next batter connects heavily with the ball and the Scotsman stands up and roars with the crowd in his thick accent: "R-r-r-un yah bahstard. R-r-run!"
A third batter slams a hit and again the Scotsman, obviously pleased with his knowledge of the game, screams "r-r-r-un ya bahstard, r-r-run will ya."
The next batter's count goes up to three and two. As the pitch crosses past outside the plate, he holds his swing. The umpire calls a walk the Scotsman stands up yelling "r-r-r-un ya bahstard, r-r-run!". All the surrounding fans giggle quietly and he sits down, confused.
A friendly fan, sensing his embarrassment, whispers "He doesn't have to run, he's got four balls."
After this explanation the Scotsman stands up in disbelief and yells,
"Walk PR-R-ROUD, man! Walk Proud!"
