教练与他的队员

2006-07-08 15:40

  A Coach and His Players

  I was the new coach of a Little League baseball team and had not yet learned the names of my players. At our first game, I called each boy by the number on his uniform. When I yelled,"Number5, your time to bat, " Jeff Smith came to the plate to hit. When I called for "Number 7", Steve Heinz jumped up. Then I asked for "Number 1", and no one emerged from the dugout. Again I called for Number 1. Still no one.

  As the umpire looked on, annoyed at this delay of the game, I shouted, "Who is Number 1?"

  That's when the whole team yelled, "We are, Coach! We are!

  Notes:

  (1) coach n.教练

  (2) baseball n.棒球

  (3) bat v.(用棒)击

  (4) plate n.(棒球)本垒

  (5) emerge v.出现

  (6) dugout n.隐蔽壕

  (7) umpire n.裁判员

  Exercises:

  请回答下列问题:

  ① Why didn't the coach know the names of his players?

  ② How did the coach call the boys since he didn't know their names?

  ③ Who was number five?

  ④ Why did the coach get annoyed?

  ⑤ How did the players interpret "Number I"?

  我初到一小团体棒球队作教练,还不知道队员的名字。在第一次比赛中,我按照每一名队员球衣的号数来指挥。当我大声喊到:“5号,你该击球了。”杰夫·史密斯到本垒击球。当我叫到“7号”时,史迪夫·汉斯就跳起来。然后我叫到“1号”,却没人从隐蔽壕里跳出来。我又叫了一遍1号。还是没人跳出来。

  因为裁判在旁观看,我很生气这支球队的懒散,大声吼道:“谁是1号(第一)?”

  这时全体队员大喊道:“是我们,教练!我们是!”

  练习参考答案:

  ① Because he was the new coach.

  ② He called each boy by the number on his uniform.

  ③ Jeff Smith.

  ④ Because no one responded to his call, and the umpire looked on.

  ⑤ The best team.
