Run!

A recent Scottish immigrant attends his first baseball game in his new country and 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-run you bastard, r-run will you! A third batter slams a hit and again the Scotsman, obviously pleased with his knowledge of the game, screams R-r-run you bastard, r-r-run will you! The next batter held his swing at three and two and as the ump calls a walk the Scotsman stands up yelling R-r-run you bastard, r-r-run! All the surrounding fans giggle quietly and he sits down confused. A friendly fan, sensing his embarrassment whisper, He doesn’t have to run, he’s got four balls. After this explanation the Scotsman stands up in disbelief and screams, Walk with pr-r-ride man! Walk with pr-r-ride!!!!
