The Greatest Baseball Player And Yogi Berra HumorTime for some baseball humor from the ruler of humor - the Blog King. Baseball players - of all ages - provide regular opportunities for us to chuckle and chortle. One of my personal sources for baseball related humor has been Yogi Berra. Yogi is credited with creating the saying, "It ain't over till it's over." Yogi is also known for his verbal misses. One of my personal quote favorites is ..."This is like déjà vu all over again. And that's the perfect "warm up" for the somewhat true tale of the greatest baseball plalyer of all time.
A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a ball and bat. "I'm the greatest hitter in the world," he announced. Then, he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.
Strike One!" he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!" He tossed the ball into the air. When it came down he swung again and missed. "Strike Two!" he cried.
The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, "I'm the greatest hitter in the world!" Again he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. "Strike Three!"
"Wow!" he exclaimed. "I'm the greatest pitcher in the world!"
Ya gotta admit, that's an impressive attitude. Batter up!
