Baseball Forever

Two buddies, Bob and Earl, were the biggest baseball fans in America. For their entire adult lives, Bob and Earl discussed baseball history in the winter and pored over boxscores during the season. They went to 60 games a year. They agreed that whoever died first would try to come back and tell the other if there was baseball in heaven. One summer night, Bob passed away in his sleep after watching the Red Sox victory earlier in the evening. He died happy. A few nights later, Earl awoke to the sound of Bob's voice from beyond.

"Bob is that you?" Earl asked.
"Of course it me," Bob replied. "This is unbelievable!"
"So tell me, is there baseball in heaven?" Earl inquired.
"Well I have some good news and some bad news for you. Which do you want to hear first?"

"Tell me the good news first."
"Well, the good news is that there is baseball in heaven, Earl."

"Oh, that is wonderful! So what could possibly be the bad news?"
"You're pitching tomorrow night."
