Now, the VOA Learning English program Words & Their Stories.

 

Baseball is often called America’s game. This may or not be true but a baseball game is a great place to learn American English.

 

So, let’s go to the ballpark! My colleague, Christopher Jones Cruise, invited me to a baseball game recently. Let’s hear how it went.

Baseball stadiums can hold thousands of fans for day or night games. (AP Photo)

Anna, thanks for coming to the game today! It’s going to be a great game. The teams are from two countries. The Toronto Blue Jays traveled from Canada to Washington, D.C., to play the Washington Nationals.

 

I’ve never been to Nationals Park before! It’s really … big! But it’s raining. Is that going to affect the game?

 

Well, the weather experts said the rain in the D.C. area would be intermittent. It’s going to rain for a few minutes and then stop before possibly starting again. It’ll be fine.

 

Oh, and don’t let me forget to pay you for the tickets.

 

Don’t worry about the tickets. I only paid $5 a seat!

 

Five dollars? That’s cheap!

 

Seating close to the field for some games can be expensive. Do you see those seats all the way down there behind home plate? They can cost $375! So five dollars for a seat is a great deal!

 

Well, I know you like to save money.

 

You know, some people from work say I’m a cheapskate.

 

No! NO. They don’t say that … much.

 

I’m not a cheapskate. I just love the idea of saving money and enjoying the game in the ‘cheap seats’.

 

Oh, I don’t mind seats this far away. But, you know, my eyesight is not that good. In fact, it looks like there’s a huge, furry animal down there on the field.

 

There’s nothing wrong with your eyesight. That is a big furry animal on the field. It’s the team mascot. You know, people in costumes that get the crowd excited.

 

Oh! Well, that mascot is doing a good job. Everyone is excited. Oh, look, they have big screens televising the game. I can watch the game on those.

 

Those are called “Jumbotrons!”

 

That’s a cool name. Look at the crowd. We all look funny all wearing these cheap rain covers. You know Christopher, I think the rain is falling harder. And it’s been raining for 20 minutes.

 

It won’t be a problem. Trust me.

 

ANNOUNCER: Attention, folks. We have a problem. We would like to announce that the game will be delayed due to inclement weather.

 

Oh. The game is delayed.

 

Yes. I heard that.

 

It’s delayed because of “inclement” weather. Why not just say, “The game is canceled because of rain.”

 

I guess they want to sound fancy instead of just saying it’s “stormy.”

 

Look, many fans have moved inside the stadium. What are those people doing on the field with that big blue plastic thing?

 

That is a plastic tarp and they are covering the field. It will keep the field from getting too wet. Teams often cancel games when the field is soaked with water. Baseball players can get injured when they play on a field that is wet or muddy.

 

Yeah, I guess team owners don’t want to lose money if a player gets hurt. They pay some players millions of dollars a year to play a ballgame! Unbelievable.

 

Hey, the rain … it seems to be slowing. Maybe the game will start soon!

 

I don’t think so, Christopher. Look, an official is coming out to check the field. Now, it looks like he is signaling to someone. It looks like a weird dance.

 

Oh no. I know that weird dance. Don’t do it. Don’t do it!

 

Do what?

 

ANNOUNCER: We are sorry to announce that tonight’s game is canceled.

 

No! The game is rained out! The fields can’t be that damaged from the rain.

 

ANNOUNCER: The field is really damaged from the rain. But keep your tickets. There will be a make-up game tomorrow. It will be a doubleheader. The first game is at one o’clock in the afternoon. The second game would be played at seven o’clock. Thank you for your understanding.

 

See, it’s not so bad. You can see two games tomorrow, a double-header.

 

I can’t come tomorrow. I have to work.

 

Oh, well, I’m off. Can I have your ticket? I’ll bring a friend.

 

Sure. Well, since they called the game, we have to leave the stadium

 

At least, the officials for the Nationals have a sense of humor.

 

What do you mean? There’s nothing funny about a rained out baseball game.

 

Listen. Don’t you hear the song they are playing on those large speakers throughout the park? “Laughter in the Rain” by Neil Sedaka!

 

Perfect.

 

"Oooo, I hear laughter in the rain ..."

Now the VOA Learning English Program, Worlds and their stories.

Baseball is often called American's game, this may or may not be true, but a baseball game is a great place to learn American English. So let's go to the ball park. My college Cruise invited me to a baseball game recently. Let's hear how it went.


Anna thanks for coming to the game today, it's going to be a great game. The teams are from two countries. The Torento blue jas traveled from Canada to Washiton DC to play the Washiton nationals.


I've never been to national's park before, it's really big, but it's raining, is that going to effect the game?


Well the weather experts said the rain in the DC area would be intermitent it's going to rain for a few minutes and then stop before possibly starting again. It would be fine.


Oh, and don't let me forget to pay you for the tickets.


Don't worry about the tickets, I only paid 5 dollors a seat.


5 dollors? That's cheap.


Seating close to the field for some games can be expensive. Do you see those seats all the way down there behind home plate, they can cost 375 dollars. So 5 dollors for a seat is a great deal.


Well i know you like to save money.


You know some people from work say I am a cheapskate.


No, no, they don't say that much.


I am not a cheapskate, I just love the idea of saving money and enjoy the game in the cheap seats.

I don't mind seats is far away. But you know my eyesight is not that good,in fact it looks like there's a huge furry aminal down there on the field.

There's nothing wrong with your eyesight, there is a big furry animal on the field. It's the team maskad, you know people in cusdoom they get their crowd excited.

Oh, that maskad is doing a good job. Everyone is excited. Oh, look! They have a big screen televising the game. I can watch the game on those.

Those are called junble trangs.

That's a cool name. Look at the crowd, we all look funny where the cheap raing covers. You know Christpho I think the rain is falling harder. And it being a raining for 20 minutes.

It won't be a problem, trust me. Attention folks, we have a problem. We would like to announce that the game will be delayed due to in climate weather.

Oh, the game is delayed.

Yes, I heard that.

It's delayed because of the inclimate weather why not just say the game is cancel because of the rain.

I guess they want to sound fancy instead just saying it's stomming.

Look many fans have moved the inside the stamium. What are those people doing on the field with that big blue plastic think?

That is a plastic top and they are covering the field. It will keep the field from getting too wet. Teams often cancel game when they feel they sort with water.

Baseball players can get injuried when they play on the field that is wet or money.

Yeah, I guess team owner don't want to lose money if a player gets hurt, they pay some players millions of dollars a year to play a ball game. Unbelieveable.
