Love of Baseball

Two men, Tom and Joe, have loved baseball more than anything their entire lives. One day Tom says to Joe, “If you die before me, promise me you’ll come back and tell me if there is baseball in Heaven.”

Joe agrees and makes Tom promise the same thing. Some time later later Tom dies.

One night Joe is woken up by somebody calling his name. Scared, he calls out, “Who’s there?”

Suddenly Tom appears and says, “Hi Joe. I’m down here from Heaven. I’ve got some good news and some bad news. I’ll give you the good news first and that’s that there is baseball in heaven!”

Joe gets very excited, but then he asks, “What’s the bad news?”

Tom says, “I looked at the lineup and you’re pitching tomorrow.”
