Summer is baseball season. Next time you’re visiting the ballpark, cheering on your favorite team, impress those fans around you by shouting the following baseball lingo.
Baltimore Chop: a grounder that hits in front of or off home plate and hops over the infielder’s head.
Can of Corn: an easy catch by a fielder.
Moon Shot: a very lone, high home run.
Closer: a team’s late-inning relief pitcher.
High and Tight: a pitch that’s up in the strike zone and inside on a hitter. Also known as “up and in”.
Ribbie, Ribeye: another way of saying RBI, run batted in.
