I'm a Sonic fan (obviously) who is also a fan of this show. ...not much else to say.

One day, Pinkie Pie visits Rainbow Dash on the school's field to tell her that Rainbow Dash is now the new member of the All Star Baseball Team! Rainbow Dash is very excited with the news but she doesn't know any of the players she is going to play with. So Rainbow Dash ask Pinkie Pie for the names of the players and...hijinks ensues.

This story is based on Abbot and Costello's most famous skit: Who's on First!

The story did give me a nice laugh, I reminded me when our coaches preformed it to us in middle school. 'Twas a good laugh for today after finishing a chapter for my story.

However! I want to point out a incorrect use of two words in your story that I saw.

“Oh great,” Rainbow muttered, “I’m going to get in detection for braking one of the windows… again.”

By braking I think you meant breaking since if she was braking then wouldn't she be stopping a car with the brake?:rainbowhuh:

Also for detection I believe you mean detention since I'm not sure what Rainbow wants to detect.:unsuresweetie:

Besides the minor errors, it was a nice little laugh for the day. There might be more that I didn't see, but nevertheless, have fun!:pinkiehappy:

Wait, this world has been around for how long and this story is just now being created? Good job on the idea; I'll read it sooner or later.

i've always loved this skit

Rainbow Dash looks good in monochrome.

YAY FINALLY I must read this

My fucking head fucking hurts.

This read could only be described as "unpleasant". Not particularly terrible, just...

Unpleasant.

Oh Abbot and Costello they never get old XD some spelling errors though

Great to see one of the legendary classics. Nothing beats hearing the whole thing out loud, but this was pretty good. :twilightsmile:

5404355 I'm glad I made you laugh and thank you for pointing out my mistakes. They're all fixed! :twilightsmile:

5404851 Why is my story unpleasant to you? Just wondering. :unsuresweetie:

*Applause* Enough said. MUSTACHE! :moustache:

I just really do not like the premise. The execution is flawed, but not much more so than most. But basing an entire story around a minute-thirty sketch by Abbot and Costello?

Not my thing.

You know, we never do find out who's in right field... :ajsmug:

Also, the best way to communicate this would be a diagram I think...

Also, also:

MLP FiM+Who's on First = Instant Like! Just add Ponies!

This works too well with pony names. :twilightsmile:

I... I... I can't breathe... :rainbowlaugh:

5406837 Because he isn't in right field!

Who is on first! :derpytongue2:

5406837 5408121 I just included the diagram in my author's notes. Hope that helps!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! that pretty funny!

Okay, this was far better then I expected. I may have to write up those bits I based on some of Bud & Lou's other routines, like '7 x 13 = 28' and 'Tree of Truth'.

LOVED IT. :moustache: Also, we had to do that skit in my drama class :rainbowlaugh:

5408190 *shrug* I wasn't confused to begin with, I was just making a joke.

These characters fit the sketch perfectly. :twilightsmile:
Nice job!

Hahahahahaha!!!!!!!! :rainbowlaugh: Having performed this skit as a teen several years ago as part of a Homeschool Variety Show at a local theater, I was naturally interested to see a ponified version of one of the greatest comedy skits of all time and this did not disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed how you took it and modernized it to fit into the Equestria Girls universe and the casting of Rainbow Dash and Pinkie Pie was perfect for this type of setting. I was laughing my :yay: off all throughout it's entirety. If I had one critique it would be the occasional typos peppered throughout but that's honestly just nitpicking. It brought back memories of me in the Costello/Rainbow Dash role of this skit while giving it a clever twist. Awesome job.

Why am I just now finding this?!

Eh, it would've been better if there was a bit more variation besides the absolute minimum needed to make it fit in the context of the setting. This is copied almost word-for-word from the original skit.

hey, memories of ABBOT AND COSTELLO. I forget the movie, but that was
the best part. I even went to the Baseball Hall of Fame and bought the routine
on tape. of course there was other stuff but this is the highlight. well done
and very clever indeed. keep it up.

Pinkie gave Rainbow a full tooth smile, “That’s why I’m here! One of MY conditions of joining their team is to have you join their team too!”

That's actually very nice of her.

Pinkie smiled and simply replied, “Spitfire broke her leg.”
Rainbow Dash’s excitement was quickly replaced with a look of horror. “What! Spitfire broke her leg?”
Pinkie nodded, “Yea! Apparently, as she was leaving the Café with Soarin, she didn’t noticed that same piece of pie that was what caused to choke Soarin on the floor and slipped on it. As a result…she won’t be playing with her team for a little while.”

Oh. Dark.

Pinkie smiled, “You are now the captain of the All Star Baseball team!”

Well then.

“What do you mean is that all?” Rainbow exclaimed, “It’s important to know who is playing. From what I learned as the captain of the Wondercults, is in order to be a great team, you have to know the strengths and weakness of each players and work with them… and knowing their names is the first step!”

WondercOlts. Also, I can see where this is going.

Pinkie tapped her finger on her chin in thought, “Let’s see, we have Who’s on first, What’s on second, I Don’t Know is on third…”

KNEW IT!

“THIRD BASE!” Both girls cried out in unison as they both pointed towards the field.

Love this part!

Also, Right Field is "Who Cares?"

There is only one word that can truly describe this: hilarious!

Oh the best comedy thing I have every herd. I only read this cause who's on first. Lol I don't like EQG but this was really funny! Good job!

“DUH! So the players can have the chance to eat that delicious meaty substance from the power of Tacos! And you can only get them on Tuesday! Everyone’s trying to get their hands on them especially that blue-hair girl. Our players are no exception!” Pinkie said in her matter-of-fact tone.

oh hey reminds me of trickie and sonata battle for the last taco:rainbowlaugh:

6028068 I thought that the Right Fielder's name was Nobody.

Now, all we need is a pony version of "I'm at Soup"!

I can't remember if it ever went that far, but, it's hilarious either way. It's just one of those jokes that's still funny no matter what.

6979526 Doesn't it say on the Diagram?

6979568 Well, I found it on Google Images and it says that the right fielder is Nobody.

(I cant post it on here because of computer issues.)

5906989 I think it was called Naughty Nineties.

6979520 YES! That would be amazing!

Ah.....Classic Abbot and Costello. One of the greatest comedy duos to come along.

Also, just a little side note, in the original skit, the shortstop was I Don't Give A Damn. But, I think they got into some trouble for saying Damn (this was a LONG before you could say cuss words on TV and Damn was considered pretty much up there with the 'F' word back in those days), so it was changed to Darn. Used to be very hard to find the original skit, because the Darn version was usually the one shown. But, with the advent of YouTube, it's pretty easy to find it now.

Anyway, now that I'm through rambling, have a like for the nostalgia.

I can hardly believe it. Someone finally made a MLP version of "Who's on first." :pinkiegasp:
YAY! :yay:

This comedy bit makes me laugh so much.

A true comedy classic. :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

Please, except my like and a fave.
