Loft

Three rookies are at batting practice. The first guy pops one straight overhead that falls back into the stands. He turns to the hitting coach and says, “What did I do wrong?”

The coach says, “Loft.”

The next guy steps up and hits a foul that dribbles near the fence by first base. He asks the coach, “What did I do wrong?”

The coach says, “Loft.”

The third guy swings and misses. He asks the coach, “What did I do wrong?”

The coach says, “Loft.”

As they’re walking to the showers, the first guy finally speaks up. He says to the coach, “The three of us made completely different swings, and when we asked you what we did wrong you answered the same exact answer each time. What’s loft?”

The coach replies, “Lack of fucking talent.”
