American English is full of colorful expressions. One such expression is, to touch all bases. It comes from the sport of baseball.


There are four bases in baseball -- first, second and third. The fourth is home plate. Together, the bases form a diamond shape. When a baseball player hits the ball, he must run to each base -- in order -- and touch it with his foot. It is the only way to score a point. If the player hits the ball and fails to touch all the bases, the point will not be counted.


The importance of touching all the bases was shown at the start of the nineteen seventy-four baseball season.


Hank Aaron was a player with the Atlanta Braves team. He was seeking the record for hitting the most home runs. A home run is a ball that is hit over the wall. Aaron needed just one home run to equal the record held by Babe Ruth, the greatest hitter in baseball history. Aaron got that home run the very first time he had a chance to hit the ball. He sent the ball over the wall that surrounded the playing field. That gave him seven hundred and fourteen home runs -- the same as Babe Ruth.


After that day, baseball fans held their breath every time it was Hank Aaron's turn to hit. When would he hit home run number seven hundred and fifteen?


The wait was not long. In the second week of the season, Aaron again hit the ball over the wall. He had beaten Babe Ruth's record. But first, he had to run around the four bases. The other players on his team watched carefully to make sure he touched each one. If he did not, the home run would not have counted. There would have been no new record.


So, to touch all bases means to do what is necessary to complete an activity.


The expression is used in business and politics. No business deal or political campaign is really complete until you discuss all the issues involved. Or, as it is said, until you touch all bases.


Even professional diplomats use this expression, as well as others that come from baseball.


A diplomat in reporting on negotiations with diplomats from different countries may say they "touched all bases" during many hours of talks. This means they explored all issues involved in the situation. Perhaps they did this after expressing hope that they could play ball with each other, meaning that they could learn to cooperate.


Sports reporters write about fast-moving, lively events. They must develop a way of writing that goes straight to the point. Their duty is to give the reader a complete picture of the event in as few words as possible. They must touch all bases as quickly as they can.

    The importence of touching all the bases was showed as a start in 1974 baseball season. Henck kealen was a player with a Atlantic team. He was seeking the record for hitting the most homeruns. A homerun is a ball that is hit over the wall. Alren needed just one homerun to equal the record held by Baly Rufu, the greatest hitter in baseball history. Alren got that homerun the very first time he had a chance to hit the ball. He sent the ball over the wall that surrounding the playing field. That gave him 714 homeruns, the same as Baly Rufu. After that day, baseball funs held their breath every time when it was Alren’s turn to hit. When would it he hit the homerun at 715, the way was not long.

   So, ”to touch all four bases” means to do what is necessary to complete in a activity. This expression is used in business and politicians.

Now the VOA special english program:Words and their stories.

 

American english is full of colorful expressions. One such expression is "To touch all basis". It comes from the sport of baseball. There are four bases in baseball. First, second and third. The fourth is homeplate. Together, the bases form a dynamic shape. when the baseball player hits the ball, he must run to each base. In word and touch with his foot. It is the the only way to score a point. If the player hits the ball and fails to touch all the bases. The point will not be counted.

 

The importance of touching all the bases will show on at the start of the 1974 baseball season. Hank Eren was a player of the Atalantic Braver's team. He was seeking the record for hiting the most homeruns. the homerun is the ball that is hit over the wall. Eren need a just one homerun to equal the record held by Bay Bruce, the greatest hiter in baseball history. Eren got that homerun the very first time he had the chance to hit the ball. He sent the ball over the wall that surround the playing field. That give him 714 homeruns, the same as hal Bruce. After that day, baseball fans held thier breath every time it was Hank Eren's turn to hit. when would he hit it the homerun the 715th, their wait was not long. In the second week of the season, Eren again hit the ball over the wall. He had beaten the Bruce's record. But first, he had to run around the four bases. The other players on his team watched cafefully to make sure he touched the each one. If he did not, the homerun will not have counted. There wouldn't have been a new record.

 

So, to touches all bases mean what to do necessary to complete an activity. The experssion is used in business and politics. No business deal or political compaign is really complete until you discuss all the issues involved. Or, as it is said, until you touch all bases even professional diplomats use this expression as well as others that comes from baseball. A deplomat is recording on the negotiations with deplomats of different countries. They say they touched all bases during many hours of talks. This means they explored all issues invloved in the situation. Perhaps they did this after expressing hope that they could play ball with each other, meaning that they could learn to coorperate.

 

Sports reporters write about fast moving lively events. They must develop the way of writing articles straight to the point. Their duty is to give the reader a completely picture of the event in as few words as possible. They must touch all bases as quickly as they can.

There are four bases in baseball, first, second and third. The fourth is home plate (本垒板). Together the bases form a diamond shape. When a baseball player hits the ball, he must run to each base in order and touch it with his foot. It is the only way to score a point. If the player hits the ball and fails to touch all the bases, the point will not be counted.

The importance of touching all the bases was showed as a start in 1974 baseball season. Hack Iran was a player with an Atlantic base team. He was seeking the record for hitting the most homeruns. A homerun is a ball that is hit over the wall. Iran needed just one homerun to equal the record held by Bay Bluff, the greatest hitter in baseball history. Iran got that homerun the very first time he had a chance to hit the ball. He sent the ball over the wall that surrounding the playing field. That gave him 714 homeruns, the same as Bay Bluff. After that day, baseball funs held their breath every time when it was Hack Iran’s turn to hit. When would he hit the homerun at 715, the wait was not long.

The other players on his team watched carefully to make sure he touched each one, if did not, the homerun would not have counted. There would have been no new record.

So, ”to touch all four bases” means to do what is necessary to complete in an activity. The expression is used in business and politicians. No business deal or political campaign is really completed until you discussed all the issues involved, or, as it said, until you touch all bases.

Even professional diplomats use this expression as well as others that come from baseball.

In the second week of the season, Aaron again hit the ball over the wall. He had beaten Ruth’s record, but first he had to run a round the four bases.

 

The other players on his team watched carefully to make sure he touched each one. If he did not, the homeround would not have counted, there would have been no new record. So to touch all bases means to do what is necessary to complete at an activity.

 

The expression used in business and politics. No business deal or political campaign is really complete until you discuss all the issues involved or as it is said until you touch all bases, even professional diplomats use this expression as well as others that come from baseball. A diplomat in reporting on the negotiations with diplomats from different countries may say they touched all bases during many hours of talks. This means they had explored all issues involved in the situation. Perhaps they did this after expressing hope that they could play ball with each other, meaning that they could learn to cooperate.

 

Sports reporters write about fast moving lively events, they must develop a way of writing that goes straight to the point. Their duty is to give the reader a complete picture of the event in as few words as possible. They must touch all bases as quickly as they can.
