(Sounds of baseball stadium - music, cheering)

Y: Patrick. 谢谢你带我来看棒球比赛。

P: Be quiet. Ayyyyy, Batta, batta, batta. Swing, batta!

Y: You be quiet. What are you doing, Patrick?

P: I'm heckling the players. Heckling is when you yell at a player of the team you are not rooting for.

Y: 你这样起哄会影响运动员发挥的。It's very distracting.

P: It is distracting and it really is not good to yell at athletes you aren't rooting for- but in baseball, it is a tradition.

Y: A tradition? 还是传统啊?I don't believe you.

P: Well, you should. It's a common tradition and an easy one. All you say is Batta, batta, batta. Swing, batta!

I'm hoping that the batter will miss the ball and get a strike.

Y: Oh, I get it now. 你是在冲着那个 batter,击球手起哄。

P: Right. And if the batter swings three times and misses, it is three strikes. Three strikes and you are out!

Y 三振出局。

P: That is what we want, Yang Chen. After three strikes, our team gets a chance to score.

Y: Can you yell anything you want?

P: Good question. But not really. You can't yell anything really mean or obscene.

Y: 我知道了,不可以骂人,不可以喊脏话,那这样行吗? - Hey, 大笨瓜,you are out.

P: Uh, no.

Y: Hey look! 那个大笨瓜struck out! 被三振出局了!This is fun.!
