Baseball in Heaven

baseballJoe and Stan, who were both 90 years old, loved baseball, and they had their entire life. One day, they were sitting together on a bench in their neighborhood when Joe turns to Stan and says:
“Will you promise me something? Promise me that if you die first and go to heaven, you’ll come back and tell if there’s baseball there.”
Stan agreed, and made Joe promise the same. 3 months later, Stan died, and the next week Joe woke up in his sleep with someone calling his name.
“Who’s there?” he called out.
“Joe! It’s me Stan!”
“Stan! It’s so good to hear you! How’s heaven?” Joe asked.
“It’s great, but I’ve some news, some good and some bad” Stan told him.
“Well tell me the good news first” Joe replied.
“OK, the good news is that, there is baseball in heaven.”
“That’s great.” Joe exclaimed, “What’s the bad news?”
“Well, the bad news is that I was reading the lineup, and you’re pitching on Friday.”
