A recent immigrant to the U.S. attended his first baseball game. After a base hit, he heard the fans roaring, "Run...run!"

The next batter connected heavily with the ball and the immigrant stood up and roared with the crowd in his thick accent, "Run yah bahstard, run!"

A third batter slammed a hit and again the immigrant, obviously pleased with his knowledge of the game, screamed, "Run ya bahstard, run will ya."

The next batter's count went to three and two. As the next pitch went outside the plate, he held his swing.
The umpire called a walk and the immigrant stood up yelling, "Run ya bahstard, run!"

All the surrounding fans giggled quietly and he sat down, confused. A friendly fan, sensing his embarrassment, whispered, "He didn't have to run, he's got four balls."

After this explanation the immigrant stood up in disbelief and screamed, "Walk PROUD, man! Walk PROUD!"
