Swing, Batter Batter, Swing!

It’s 3 and 2 in the bottom of the 9th. This next pitch could decide the fate of this 6 hour game. Buster Shortypants is batting 700 this season and has a great shot at turning this game around for the Hounds. Here comes the pitch!

Come on, Coach Joe D., get a smaller bat!

  2. “Pitcher’s got an arm like a washing machine!”
    I have no idea what that is supposed to mean. I just remember yelling it when I was little, watching my brothers play ball…

  3. Does it go round and round??? :) That’s what I thought when I read it.

  4. No hot-dogging it around the bases.

  5. Jeffrey Leonard, One Flap Down! Watch out, you’re gonna get drilled next at-bat!!

    I love bassetball season. Especially when the player starts licking home plate.

  7. 260Oakley says:

    Babe Woof was one of the game’s greatest.

  8. Theresa says:

    One Dodger Dog with extra mustard! :D

  9. my fave is still Cameron from Ferris Beuller’s “sa-wing batta-batta-batta, sa-wing battahhhhh!”

  10. edmundh says:

    Why bother swinging? Buster’s strike zone is so small it’s pretty much a guaranteed walk. Doggehs like to take walks, you know. ;)

  11. Nailed it.

  12. Our national pastime has gone to the dogs.

    (So what kind of dog is that? Looks like a Jack Russell-Dachsund-Basset hound mix.)

  13. That’s a piebald dachshund. Pure doxie (although it looks like a basset hound pup.)

  14. ROFL… In my mind I see this dog running all over the field with bat in tow chasing his human swinging the bat, tail wagging like mad.

    In cartoon form of course.

    “Shiny, happy puppeh playing ball…”
    (So shiny!)

  16. Kari Callin says:

    “What do you MEAN that was a strike?! It was low and inside…..HEY! Are you implying that I’m short?!?!”

  17. emmberrann says:

    It’s a bebeh basset! you’re not short, bebeh basset! you’re just vertically challenged. Just the right height for bebeh bassets to be!

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m glad I read the other comments before remarking on the cuteness of this dachsund.. since my fellow CO peeps say that’s not what he is.

  19. I loff him/her. Carrying things that are twice/three times as big as you is my favorite cute thing EVA!!!

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    OH MEIN GOTT !!!!! Comme c’est adorable !!!!


  21. One of my favorite things in the summertime is Bark in the Park Day:
    (Note also, the awesome, FUNKY soundtrack!)

  22. Embed Fail!!! *headdesk*

  23. He probably steals bases by carrying them away in his mouth.

  24. Oceanview says:

    All together now …. “Take Me Out To The Dog Park”!

  25. fish eye no miko says:

    I’ve never seen a dachshund with that coloring before! Neat!

  26. Jennimil says:

    Oh good. Another sports analogy.

  27. phred's mom says:

    My Phillies could use him ‘long about now. SIGN HIM UP,

  28. Theresa says:

    Hey, Phred’s Mom, the Phanatic’s being sued! :P

  29. phred's mom says:

    Yes, yet again. You should read the complaint. A joke. Doesn’t
    Mr. Met ever peeve anyone, by the way?

  30. victoreia says:

    To quote from a movie with the same theme: “I have seen enough to know that I have. Seen. Too. Much!”

  31. They’re taking this interleague stuff too far…

  32. michelle adams says:

    love the name Buster Shortypants!!!!!!

  33. Fird Birfle says:

    “Hey guys, I thought that Cr. Pants
    was giving out cookie dough batter….where’s the kitchen??”

  34. prinsas beans says:

    hey, batter, batter, SCHWING. can’t stand the cute!
