One day a man went to England on a trip and met a woman there, they grew to like each other enough for her to come to America with the man on his flight home. When they got back to America the man said 'I would like to show you an American pastime.' And the woman said 'what is it?' 'Baseball' the man said. So the next day the man took her to a baseball game. The first man came up to the plate and hit the ball to right field and got to first base, the next man bunted the ball and got to first base and the third man came up to the plate and he gets walked. The man says 'Are you understanding this game?' The woman says, 'Yes, but what I don't understand is why the thrower hurls the ball at the first man and he hits it. Then he hurls the ball at the second man and he taps it and runs to where the other man was standing. And then the third man, this is the part I don't understand, the thrower hurls the ball and he just stand there, and he hurls the ball at him again and he just stands there, and he hurls the ball at him again and he just stands there, and he hurls the ball at him again and he just stands there then he just walks to the place where the other man was standing.' Then the man says 'Well that is because he has four balls' The woman says 'Poor thing! He couldn't run if he tried.'
