We have a new Pope, but is he as good a hitter as 'John Paul II' was?
Pope John Paul II, or at least someone who looked a lot like him, displayed a solid lefty stroke in California in 1987. Will the new Bishop of Rome also be a Bishop of Home Runs?
Handler: "He plays in the Vatican League, but His Holiness doesn't have a lot of time to participate."
Batting cage proprietor: "When he does play, what position does he play?"
Handlers [in unison]: "ANY POSITION HE WANTS."
