MY FAVORITE BASEBALL JOKE

Walter O'Malley was the owner of the Brooklyn Dodgers and after the 1957 season, he moved the team to Los Angeles. This broke the hearts of millions.

A few years later, a Brooklyn fan was asked this question:

If you had a gun with only two bullets, and Hitler, Mussolini and Walter O'Malley were standing in front of you, who would you shoot?

"I'd shoot O'Malley twice," was the response.

Baseball writer to Red Sox catcher Tony Pena: "How do you pitch Jose Canseco?"

Pena: "Hard stuff high and inside, curves low and away."

Writer: "How do you pitch Mark McGwire?"

Pena: "Hard stuff high and inside, curves low and away."

Writer: "How do you pitch to God?"

Pena: "Hard stuff high and inside, curves low and away. And He knows it's coming."

This was a real conversation between Pena and my friend Bill Barton around the batting cage at Fenway Park.
