Behold, one-liners

Just like in Hollywood blockbusters, some great and funny baseball jokes take the form of one-liners. These bad boys need no introduction:

  • Baseball is 90% mental, and the other half is physical. 
  • A group of kids was playing in a farm field, and one of them hit a chicken with a baseball and then proceeded to yell, “Fowl ball!”
  • Bob led his team in steals until he got arrested for burglary. 
  • I used to collect bats, but then they managed to break free and flew away.
  • A hot dog at a baseball game beats prime rib at the Ritz.
  • Thou shalt not steal except in baseball.
  • Why do we always sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” when we’re already there?
  • Why do we call it the World Series when only teams from North America and Canada are playing?
  • When you start a game, they don’t say “Work ball!” They say “Play ball!”
  • They don’t think it be like it is…but it do.

Story jokes

Finally, among the best baseball jokes, there are also those that take a bit more time and skill to tell. But, they are absolutely worth it!

  • Fire Escape

A man is trapped in a house without windows, doors, or any other form of exit. The house is burning fast and has started to collapse, and the man has only a baseball and a bat around. How does he pull off an escape? He swings at the air three times because in baseball it is one, two, three strikes and you’re out at the good ole ball game!

  • No-Hitter

A rather cocky rookie was pitching in his first ever playoff game. He started out the game with five straight walks. Unsurprisingly, the manager immediately took him out. As the rookie walked into the dugout, he slammed his glove on the ground and yelled in protest, “That jerk took me out when I had a no-hitter going!”

  • Geography Class

One morning in elementary school, the students were studying geography, and the teacher wanted to show the students where cities and states are. The teacher asks the class, “Does anyone know where Pittsburgh is?” Billy raises up his hand and says, “Yeah, Pennsylvania!” The teacher replies, “Very good, Billy, now can anyone tell me where Detroit is?” Suzy raises her hand and says, “That’s in Michigan!” The teacher again says, “Very good.” Trying to confuse the children, she now asks, “Where’s Kansas City?” Tommy raises his hand and says, “Oh, I know!” The teacher says, “OK, Tommy, where is Kansas City?” “Last place.”

  • Talking Dog

Michael didn’t believe that Paul’s dog could talk. So Paul asked his dog, “What’s on top of a house?”

“Roof,” the dog barked simply. However, Michael wasn’t convinced. So Paul asked the dog how sandpaper feels.“Rough.” He still wasn’t convinced. “O.K, then who was the greatest baseball player of all time?” Paul asked the dog. “Ruth.” With that, Michael walked away, shaking his head in disbelief. The dog turned to Paul and asked: Was it Hank Aaron?”

Bring the house down

There goes your source of go-to baseball jokes. Pull that ace from your sleeve, but try not to telegraph it from a mile away or force it. Recognize when the moment is right and assess whether the audience is suitable. All the other rules of telling a good joke delivery apply, whether you want to impress with baseball one-liners or a longer, story format. Go ahead, hit a humor homerun with these jokes or come up with your own original ones.
