A Scotsman moved to Canada and attended his first baseball game in Toronto.
The first batter approached the batters’ box, took a few swings, and then hit a double. Everyone was on their feet screaming “Run”
The next batter hit a single. The Scotsman listened as the crowd again cheered, “Run! Run!”
The Scotsman was enjoying the game and began screaming with the fans.
The fifth batter came up and let four balls go by. The Umpire motioned the player to walk.
The batter started his slow trot to first base. The Scot stood up and screamed, “Run ye lazy bastard, RRUNN!”
The people around him began laughing, and the embarrassed Scot sat back down.
A friendly fan noted the man’s embarrassment, leaned over and explained, “He can’t run; he’s got four balls.”
The Scot stood up again and screamed, “Walk with pride, Laddie!”
