(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!
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.!
