Baseball in Heaven is a funny story about two brothers who wonder if they will still be able to play their favorite sport after they die. This story is based on an old joke and a version was included in Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark.


There were two twin brothers named Ricky and Bobby who enjoyed playing baseball. Ricky was always the pitcher and Bobby was always the secondbaseman.

One day, they were sitting on the couch when Ricky wondered aloud, “Do you think they play baseball in heaven?”

“I don’t know,” replied Bobby.

“Is there a way to find out,” asked Ricky.

“I have an idea,” replied Bobby. “How about if one of us ever dies, he has to come back and tell the other if there is baseball in heaven.”

“OK. It’s a deal,” Ricky agreed.

A few days later, Ricky was cycling down the road when he was hit by a car. He died on the way to hospital. Bobby went to the funeral and cried for days.

A week later, he was visited by the ghost of his dead brother.

“Have you come to tell me if they play baseball in heaven?” Bobby asked.

“Well, I have good news and bad news,” said Ricky. “The good news is that they do play baseball in heaven. The bad news is that you are scheduled to pitch tomorrow.”
