There are these two guys named John and Cliff. They were best friends and were so obsessed with baseball that they would go to 60 games a year and analyze every scoreboard. They even promised each other that when one of them goes to heaven, the deceased one would come back and tell the other whether there was baseball in heaven or not.
One night Cliff dies in his sleep after watching a Chicago White Sox game -- Chicago won, so at least he died a happy man. The next day Cliff returns to earth to see his friend.
"Cliff, is it really you?"
"Hey, I told you I'd be back to tell you what's up. And, you know John, there's good news and bad news."
"Okay. What's the good news?"
"There is baseball in heaven."
"The bad news?"
"You're pitching tomorrow night."
