The song uses a typical baseball batting practice to set up a woman's night at a tavern, and several men's attempts to pick her up. The first man uses cheap pick-up lines; strike one. The second asks what her sign is; strike two. The third lies about his background (claiming he attended Harvard University as a pre-med major) and reaches first but then tells her he quit because it was two hard. The team can't get one batter to hit against the pitcher, who is a self-centered egomaniac and thinks he is God's gift to women. The crowd of fans starts to leave when the groundskeeper steps up to the plate and asks for a pitch. The pitcher is more than happy to oblige, as he had just managed to strike out the whole team. The groundskeeper is successful hitting a home run on a fastball and runs the bases, all the time making fun of the pitch. When crossing home, the girl jumps into his arms.
