Two outdated males, Abe and Sol, sit on a park bench feeding pigeons and speaking about baseball.

Sol thinks about it for a minute and replies, “I dunno. However let’s make a deal — if I die first, I’ll come again and let you know if there’s baseball in Heaven, and if you happen to die first, you do the identical.” They shake on it and sadly, just a few months later, poor Abe passes on.
Quickly afterward, Sol sits within the park feeding the pigeons by himself and hears a voice whisper, “Sol… Sol… .” Sol responds, “Abe! Is that you just?”
“Sure it’s, Sol,” whispers Abe’s ghost.
Sol, nonetheless amazed, asks, “So, is there baseball in Heaven?”
“Effectively,” says Abe, “I’ve bought excellent news and unhealthy information.”
“Gimme the excellent news first,” says Sol. Abe says, “Effectively, there may be baseball in Heaven.”
Sol says, “That’s nice! What information may very well be unhealthy sufficient to destroy that?” Abe sighs and whispers, “You’re pitching on Friday.”
