Scottsman Baseball

A recent Scottish immigrant to the U.S. attends his first baseball game. After a base hit, he hears the fans roaring "Run... run!"

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!"
