10 Laugh-Out-Loud Comments Overheard at Youth Baseball Tournaments



1. There’s a set of twins on that team. But they don’t look just alike because they’re “nocturnal.”

2. “I need to start drinking so I can see what the umpire’s seeing.”

3. “Looks like someone stole the curtains out of my grandma’s kitchen and used them to make the Mariners’ uniforms.”

4) “Put a fence post in the dugout and let him argue with that!”

5) “This sure is a long game for 13U.”

“Yeah, I know! Heck, we were 12U when it started.”


6) “Hey Blue, ya need some water? It’s really hot out here and you’re starting to hallucinate!”

7) “It’s bad when the other team wants to give their MVP award to our short stop.”

8) “The only way that pitcher’s gonna throw a strike is if we set up bowling pins across home plate.”

9) Mom: “Their center fielder made an amazing catch!”

Kid: “And you were sitting right behind him? (on the other side of the fence). Why didn’t you throw something at him to distract him?”

Mom: “He’d have probably caught that too.”

10) Another Mom: “Well, crap. Wouldn’t you know my new hair color matches the other team’s uniforms perfectly. I hope nobody thinks I did it on purpose.”

    Got a huge laugh out of this. I have been a baseball mom for 30 years, and am now a baseball grandma. I have heard plenty, and yes, have been tossed out of my grandson ‘s 11U game!

    Those were funny. My personal favorite…hurled by a college baseball mom at a tiny NAIA school, “Hey Blue! You need some windex for that glass eye?!” There were others before that, but that zinger got her tossed from the stadium.

    Lol! I never had anyone in my family play baseball when I was younger, but these comments seem much more fun and light-hearted than what we used to hear between dance and figure skating moms!!
