Brush up on Baseball lingo . . .
Baltimore Chop - A ground ball that hits in front of home plate (or off of it) and takes a large hop over the infielder's head.
Bean Ball - When a pitcher throws a pitch high above the shoulders and in too close to the hitter, it is called a bean ball.
Break out a New Can - Razzing a pitcher after he has thrown a wild pitch or two.
Can of Corn - An easy catch by a fielder. A ball hit almost directly into the out fielders position popped into the air for a easy play.
Caught Looking - When a batter is called out on strikes without taking a swing at the third strike.
Cheese - "Good cheese." Refers to a good fastball.
Chin Music - A pitch that is high and inside.
Dinger - A home run.
Hot Corner - Third base is also known as the hot corner. Predominantly, most teams are made up of right hand batting ball players. The odds are greatest; therefore, that the third baseman gets many more balls coming his way than say the first baseman.
Rattle the Fence - Sometimes a batter will hit a ball that is like a rocket blast and hangs a good lick onto the outfield wall or fence. Sometimes, just to give a heavy hitter some teammate encouragement, we will get his hopes up with, "Come on Big Boy rattle the fence".
Rhubarb - A fight or scuffle.
