Baseball is America's national sport. So it is not unusual that many popular expressions come from baseball. But first let me explain a little about the game.

Each baseball team has 9 players. The pitcher of one team throws the ball to a batter from the other team. The batter attempts to hit the ball. If he misses it, it is called a strike. If a batter gets 3 strikes he loses his turn at bat and it's called "out". The batter also is out if he hits the ball in the air and a opposing player catches it. But if the batter hits the ball and it is not caught the batter tries to run to one or more of the 4 bases on the field. The batter can run to all 4 bases if he hits the ball over the fence or out of the ballpark. Such a hit is called a "homerun".

Now, here are some common expressions from baseball. Someone who is "on the ball" is intelligent and able to do a good job. But a person who "threw a curve ball" did something unexpected. Someone who "steps up the to the plate" is ready to do his or her job. A "pinch hitter" takes the place of someone else at a job or activity. A person who "strikes out" or "goes down swinging" attempted something but failed. We also might tell the person that "three strikes and you are out". But someone who "hit a homerun" or "hit it out of the park" did something extremely well.

Sometimes I have to give information quickly without time to think it over. Then I would say something "right of the bat". If someone is doing an extremely good job and is very successful, you might say he or she is "batting one thousand". If I say I want to "touch base with you" I will talk to you from time to time about something we plan to do. I might say I "touch all the bases" if I did what is necessary to complete a job or activity. And if I "covered my bases" I was well prepared.

However, someone who is "way off base" did something wrong or maybe even dishonest or immoral. A person with strange ideas might be described as "out in left field".

Let us say I want to sell my car but I do not know exactly how much it is worth. If someone asks me the price I might give a "ballpark figure" or a "ballpark estimate". If someone offers me an amount that is close to my selling price, I might say the amount is "in the ballpark". However, if I say we are not "in the same ballpark", I mean we can not agree because my ideas are too different from yours.

Finally when a situation changes completely, we say "That is a whole new ball game."

Baseball is America's national sport so it is not unusual that many popular expressions come from baseball. But first let me explain a little about the game.

Each baseball team has 9 players the pitcher of one team throws the ball to a batter from the other team. The batter attempts to hit the ball, if he misses it is called a strike. If a batter gets three strikes he loses his turn at bat and this called out. The batter also is out if he hits the ball in the air and an opposing player catches them. But if the batter hits the ball and it is not caught the batter tries to run to one or more of the four bases on the field. The batter can run to all four bases if he hit the ball over the fence or out of the ballpark. Such a hit is called a homerun.

Now here are some common expressions from baseball. Someone who is "on the ball" is intelligent and able to do a good job, but a person who "throw a curve ball" did something unexpected, someone who "step up to the plate" is ready to do his or her job. A pinch hitter takes the place of someone else at the job or activity. A person who "strikes out" or "goes down swing" attempting something but failed. We also might tell a person that "three strikes and you're out". But someone who "hit a home run" or "hit it out of the park" did something extremely well. Sometimes I have to give information quickly without time to think it over, then I would say something "ride of the bat". If someone is doing an extremely good job and is very successful, you might say he or she is batting 1,000. If I say I want to touch base with you I will talk to you from time to time about something we plan to do. I might say "I touch all the bases" if I did what is necessary to complete a job or activity. And if I "covered my bases" I was well prepared. However someone who is "way of base" did something wrong or may be even dishonest or immoral. A person who with strange ideas might be described as "out of left field". Let us think I want to sell my car but I do not know exactly how much it is worth, if someone asks me the price I might give "a ballpark figure" or "a ballpark estimate". If someone offers me an amount that is close to my selling price I might say the amount is "in the ballpark". However if I say "we are not in the some ballpark" I mean we can not agree because my ideas is too different from yours.

Now the VOA Special English Program Word and Their Stories.
Baseball is American’s national sport , so it is not unusual that many popular expressions come from baseball. But first, let meexplain a little about the game. Each baseball team has nine players. The pitcher of one team throws the ball to batter from other team. The batter attempts to hit the ball, if he misses, it is called "a strike". If a batter gets three strikes , he loses his turn at bat and it called out. The batter also is out if he hits the ball in the air and an opposing player catches it. But if the batter hits the ball and it is not caught. The batter tries to run to one or more of the four bases on the field. The batter can run all bases if he hits the ball over the fence or out of the ballpark. Such a hit is called a "home run".
Now here are some common expressions form baseball. Someone who is "on the ball" is intelligent and able to do a good job. But a person who "threw a curve ball" did something unexpected. Someone who steps up to the plate is ready to do his or her job. A "pinch hitter" takes the place of someone else at the job or activity. A person who "strikes out" or "goes down swinging" attempted something but failed. We also might tell a person that "three strikes and you are out". But someone who "hit a home run" or "hit it out of the park" did something extremely well.
Sometimes I have to give information quickly without time to think it over, then I would say something "right off the bat". If someone is doing an extremely good job and is very successful. He may say he or she is "batting one thousand". If I say I want to "touch base with you", I will talk to you from time to time about something we plan to do. I might say "I touched all the bases", if I did what is necessary to complete a job or activity. And If I covered my bases, I was well prepared.
However, someone who is "way off base" did something wrong or maybe even dishonest or immoral. A person with strange ideas might be described as "out in the left field".
Let us say I want to sell my car but I do not know exactly how much it is worth. If someone asks me the price, I may give a "ball park figure" or "a ball park estimate". If someone offers me in an amount that is close to my selling price , I might say the amount is "in the ball park". However ,if I say we are not in the same ball park I mean we can not agree , because my ideas are too different from yours. Finally, when a situation changes completely , we say "that is a whole new ball game".

Baseball is America's national sport, so it is not unusual that many popular expressions come from baseball. But first let me explain a little about the game.

Each baseball team has 9 players. The pitcher of one team throws the ball to a batter from the other team. The batter attempts to hit the ball. If he misses, it is called a "strike". If a batter gets three strikes, he loses his turn at bat and is called "out". The batter also is out if he hits the ball in the air and an opposing player catches them. But if the batter hits the ball and it is not caught, the batter tries to run to one or more of the 4 bases on the field. The batter can run to all four bases if he hits the ball over the fence or out of the ball park. Such a hit is called a "homer run".

Now here are some common expressions from baseball.

Someone who is on the ball is intelligent and able to do a good job. But a person who threw a curve ball did something unexpected. Someone who steps up to the plate is ready to do his or her job. A pinch hitter takes the place of someone else at a job or activity. A person who strikes out or goes down swinging attempted something but failed. We also might tell the person that three strikes and you are out. But someone who hit a homer run or hit it out of the park did something extremely well.

Sometimes I have to give information quickly without time to think it over, then I would say something right off the bat. If someone is doing an extremely good job and is very successful, you might say he or she is batting 1,000. If I say I want to touch base with you, I will talk to you from time to time about something we plan to do. I might say I touch all the bases if I did what is necessary to complete a job or activity. And if I covered my bases, I'm with well prepared. However, someone who is way off base did something wrong, or maybe even dishonest or immoral. A person with strange ideas might be described as outing left field.

Let us say I want to sell my car, but I do not know exactly how much it is worth. If someone asks me the price, I might give a ball park figure or a ball park estimate. If someone offers me an amount that is close to my selling price, I might say the amount is in the ball park. However, if I say we are not in the same ball park, I mean we can not agree because my ideas are too different from yours.

Finally, when a situation changes completely, we say that is a whole new ball game.
