Dzień Dobry,

I'm going to a baseball game with some Polish people and was wondering if anyone could suggest some phrases to yell at the game.

Maybe something like "Come on Pierzynski!"
"Go Sox!"
"White Sox"
and especially "Let's Go White Sox"

Also something bad to say about the other team, the Cleveland Indians
(the nastier the better)


To say "This is bad" is "To jest zle" right?
To say "This is not good" is "To jest nie dobzre" right?


Thank you guys very much for replying to questions on this forum. There is not very much help for people trying to learn Polish compared to all other European languages.

    Hi,

    Is Sox a surname or a name of a team?
    Here is my suggestion, but I am not a baseball fan so I don't know what they might use.

    Well, generally you're correct, but I think supporters in Poland would generally get the opposite team the bird/boo them, so you don't have to strain. :D

    Thanks!

    The name of the team is the White Sox (it's misspelled on purpose, the correct spelling would be White Socks)
     
    Another ways of saying "come on" would be:
    Dalej! (literally meaning further)
    Jedziesz! (you're driving/riding)
    Dawaj, dawaj! (Give, give)
    Naprzód! (Move on)

    What you could say to the other team could be:
    Do domu! (Go home!) altogether with booing.

    Hope this helps,
    Cheers!

    I think for these
    "Go Sox!"
    "White Sox"
    and especially "Let's Go White Sox"
    you could use simple: Soksi! repeated a few times.
