Umpire (out of frame): Stee-rike one! Jerome's Grandfather: Look at the ball, Jerome! Man 1: This kid can't hit. Man 2: Yeah, he splits the season with soccer. Umpire (out of frame): Stee-rike two! Jerome's Grandfather: Oomph! Man 1: Wasting time on that euro-sport ruins 'em for baseball. Umpire (out of frame): Stee-rike three! Jerome's Grandfather: You fools just watch-- he'll come around! He's got the genes, he just needs to get in some cuts at the ball. Man 2: Looks like he's going to get at least three cuts with each at bat.
