Here is another fun skit, rarely performed.
Another of my favorite skits is the Worlds Greatest Pitcher;
You need a screen (white sheet), Flashlight (bright) and a sick (size of a

Get volunteers (4). Have pitcher throw his pitches:

the screen as the ball advances toward the batter.
1. Fast Ball - Light goes fast across sheet from the back side)
2. Slider- Light slopes down accross sheet from back side)

Each volunteer only gets one pitch. Of Course since no ball is actually
thrown, and they can't hit the light so they stand there looking foolish.
The final pitch, the Greatest Ever Spit Ball. Really ham it up.
You announce the World's Greatest Spit Ball. As soon as the Pitcher throws
the ball you scream, "Look Out Its Out of Control", followed by a bucket of
water being thrown upon someone: Your choice, the announcer, pitcher, or
If you are going to get the batter, let the pitcher throw each pitch and
announce it as you see it on the screen. The final pitch of course is "Oh no
its a spit ball!"
Hope you like this skit.
