Baseball in heaven

I read this joke once when I was in high school, I believe in a book I had checked out from the library, but had since forgotten about it until I came across it this morning.  It’s just a tad morbid, but pretty amusing all the same.


Is There Baseball In Heaven?

Two old men had been best friends for years, and they both live to their early 90’s, when one of them suddenly falls deathly ill. His friend comes to visit him on his deathbed, and they’re reminiscing about their long friendship, when the dying man’s friend asks, “Listen, when you die, do me a favor. I want to know if there’s baseball in heaven.”

The dying man said, “We’ve been friends for years, this I’ll do for you.” And then he dies.

A couple days later, his surviving friend is sleeping when he hears his friend’s voice. The voice says, “I’ve got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that there’s baseball in heaven.”

“What’s the bad news?”

“You’re pitching on Wednesday.”

  1. Nice. Always one of my favorites.

    Another one as old as that goes as follows:
    The Devil challenges St. Peter to a ball game. Pete looks around and sees Ruth and Cobb and DiMaggio and a host of others.
    “What makes you think you can win?” he asks.
    The Devil replies, “I got all the umpires.”
