Sport

Baseball

I'm battin' a thousand!
The Scout
Template:Auto lang cat
  • The term comes from baseball statistics, where it signifies getting a hit for every turn at bat. It was transferred to other activities in the 1920s.


  • The Scout's accent and use of a bat as a melee weapon reflect the avid baseball culture of the Boston area including the renowned Boston Red Sox.
  • The name of Bonk! Atomic Punch may refer to the term "The Bonk" or "Hitting the wall", a condition when an athlete (usually in endurance sports) suddenly loses energy or becomes fatigued, much like how the Scout slows down after the effects of Bonk! wears off.


Achievement: A Year To Remember


Achievement: Beanball

  • "Beanball" is a colloquial sports term for a ball thrown at an opposing player with the intention of striking him such as to cause harm, often connoting a throw at the player's head.


Achievement: Blocking The Plate

  • In baseball, blocking the plate is a common technique performed by a catcher to prevent a runner from scoring. The act of blocking the plate accounts for most of the physical contact in baseball.


Achievement: Brushback

  • A brushback pitch is a pitch thrown high and inside, usually a fastball, to force the batter away from the plate, often to intimidate.


Achievement: Caught Napping

  • A baserunner who is tagged out because he wasn't paying attention to what the defensive players were doing is "caught napping." Often this involves a pickoff play in which the infielder sneaks up behind the runner and takes a throw from the pitcher, or, less often, the catcher.


Achievement: Closer

  • In baseball, a closing pitcher, more frequently referred to as a closer, is a relief pitcher who specializes in closing out games.


Achievement: Doctoring The Ball

  • To "doctor the ball" means to apply a foreign substance to the ball or otherwise altering it in order to put an unnatural spin on a pitch.


Achievement: Fall Classic

  • The World Series—the championship series of Major League Baseball, in which the champion of the American League faces off against the champion of the National League. Typically, this series takes place in October, so playing in October is the goal of any major league team.


Achievement: Foul Territory

  • In baseball, foul territory or foul ground is defined as the area of the field outside of the foul lines. The foul lines and foul poles are not part of foul territory.


Achievement: Gun Down

  • A play on the phrase Run Down in which a runner is stranded between two bases, and runs back and forth to try to avoid fielders with the ball. The fielders (usually basemen) toss the ball back and forth, to prevent the runner from getting to a base, and typically close in on him and tag him.


Achievement: No Hitter

  • A no-hitter is a reference to a game in which one team managed to prevent the other team from getting a hit.


Achievement: Out of the Park

  • Out of the ballpark is a home run in which the ball went over all of the outfield seatings (i.e it went outside the whole arena).


Achievement: Pop Fly

  • A pop fly is a fly ball that goes high up in the air without travelling far out in the field.


Achievement: Race for the Pennant

  • A Pennant Race is the last weeks of a baseball season.


Achievement: Round Tripper

  • A home run. The analogy is to a commuter who buys a round-trip ticket from home plate to second base and back again to home.


Achievement: Side Retired

  • When the third out of an inning is called, the "side is retired" and the other team takes its turn at bat. A pitcher or a defensive team can be said to have "retired the side."


Achievement: The Big Hurt

  • Frank Thomas is a Major League Baseball designated hitter who is currently a free agent. He was given the nickname "The Big Hurt" by broadcaster Ken Harrelson, who coined the term in the 1992 season.


Achievement: The Cycle

  • Hitting for the cycle means to hit a single, double, triple and home run in the same game. To accomplish this feat in order is termed a "natural cycle." Hitting for the cycle is a rare enough occurrence that Major League Baseball keeps special statistics on it.
