The next batter connects and the Scotsman stands up and joins the roar of the crowd: "R-R-RUN! RUN!"

A third batter slams a hit and again the Scotsman, growing accustomed to the ritual, screams at the top of his lungs: "R-R-RUN, ya bahstard, R-R-RUN will ya!"

The next batter holds his swing at three and two, and as the ump calls a walk the Scotsman stands up and yells, "RUN! RUN! R-R-RRUN ya bahstard, RUN!"
