The funniest sports comedy sketches: Baseball edition
    Mets Seasonal Affective Disorder
    UCB Scraps
    While baseball season is a joyous time for many Americans, it can be a very, very dark time for one group -- Mets fans. This commercial is for anyone out there who understand the depression that David Wright can bring.

    Matt Harvey Asks New Yorkers About Matt Harvey
    Late Night with Jimmy Fallon
    As depressing as baseball season can be for Mets fans, how do you think the Mets themselves feel? They have to spend four months hearing how much they're disappointing everyone. Jimmy Fallon had Matt Harvey face his worst critics on the streets of New York.

    Coach Dobbs, the most unlucky baseball coach ever
    Saturday Night Live
    If there's anyone who has worse luck at baseball than the Mets, it's the ill-fated Coach Dobbs, played by Randy Quaid in this SNL sketch. How many times can one guy get hit in the head?

    Before you go in the locker room, remember that being a good baseball player is no excuse for sexual harassment.

    Night Baseball
    5 Second Films
    Short and sweet, which is exactly what baseball isn't.

    It's not specifically about baseball, but it's on a baseball diamond and they're using bats, and that's close enough.

    Conan O'Brien Plays Old Timey Baseball
    Conan O'Brien
    1864 rules, 1864 costumes, some say a waste of time, others say an incredible waste of time. Not a waste of time: seeing Conan in that mustache.

    And one
    Chappelle's Show
    Nobody is funnier or has better baseball moves than Dave Chappelle. 

    Who's On First
