A Scottish man was at a baseball game. It was the first
time he had ever seen the sport so he sat quietly. The
first batter approached the plate, he took a few swings
and then hit a double. Everyone was on their feet
screaming "Run, Run."
This happened two more times, with a single and a triple.
The Scottish man was now exited and ready to get into the
game. The next batter came up and four balls went by.
The umpire called "walk" and the batter started on a slow
trot to first. The Scotchman, extremely excited now, stood
up and screamed, "R-R-Run ye basstarrd, rrrun!"
Everyone around him started laughing. So the Scotchman,
extremely embarrassed, sat back down. A friendly fan,
seeing the Scotchman's embarrassment, leaned over and
said, "He can't run - he got four balls."
The Scotchman then stood up and screamed,
"Walk with pride, laddie...walk with pride!"
