Though baseball is a time-honored sport and generally approached very seriously by those who make their living playing it, there are still some rare gems of fun in each and every game. Sure enough, these small moments make both the fans and the players laugh and bring a moment of joy outside of the game's competitive nature. Of course, the individuals behind some of baseball's humor are few and far between.
In today's game, one who can always be counted on for a laugh is New York Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher, whose laid back personality and almost constant smile make him a fan favorite everywhere. He loves being a total goof and lives only to entertain, along with bringing home some wins for his team.
Similarly, former Yankee Yogi Berra has given us some fine verbal gems that make some wonder why he hasn't yet pursued a career as a standup comedian yet.
That said, seeing as how it's a holiday weekend and we're all in the mood for some fun, let's go through the baseball annals and look at some of the funniest men to ever play the game.
