Baseball in Heaven
Two ninety year old men, Moe and Sam, have been friends all their lives. It
seems that Sam is dying of cancer, and Moe comes to visit him every day.
"Sam," says Moe, "You know how we have both loved baseball all our lives,
and how we played minor league ball together for so many years. Sam, you
have to do me one favor. When you get to Heaven, and I know you will go to
Heaven, somehow you've got to let me know if there's baseball in Heaven."
Sam looks up at Moe from his death bed, and says, "Moe, you've been my best
friend many years. This favor, if it is at all possible, I'll do for you."
And shortly after that, Sam passes on. It is midnight a couple of nights
later. Moe is sound asleep when he is awakened by a blinding flash of white
light and a voice calls out to him, "Moe.... Moe...."
"Who is it?" says Moe sitting up suddenly. "Who is it?"
"Moe, it's me, Sam."
"Come on. You're not Sam. Sam just died."
"I'm telling you," insists the voice. "It's me, Sam!"
"Sam? Is that you? Where are you?"
"I'm in Heaven," says Sam, "and I've got to tell you, I've got
really good news and a little bad news."
"So, tell me the good news first," says Moe.
"The good news," says Sam "is that there is baseball in Heaven. Better yet,
all our old buddies who've gone before us are here too. Better yet, we're all
young men again. Better still, it's always spring time and it never rains or
snows. And best of all, we can play baseball all we want, and we
never get tired!"
"Really?" says Moe, "That is fantastic, wonderful beyond my wildest
dreams! But, what's the bad news?"
"You're pitching next Tuesday"
