Two men, Tom and Joe, have loved baseball more than anything their entire lives.
One day Tom says to Joe, “If you die before me, promise me you’ll come back and tell me if there is baseball in Heaven.”
Joe agrees and makes Tom promise the same thing. About a week later Tom dies.
One night Joe wakes up to somebody calling his name. Scared, he asks, “Who’s there?”
Suddenly Tom appears and says, “Hi Joe. I’m coming here from Heaven. I’ve got some good news and some bad news. I’ll give you the good news first, there is baseball in heaven!”
Joe gets very excited, but then he asks, “What’s the bad news?”
Tom looks at him grimly and says, “I looked at the lineup and you’re pitching tomorrow.”
