But first let me explain a little about the sport.Each base ball team has nine players.The pitcher of the team threws the ball to the batter from other team.The batter attempts to hit the ball.If he misses,it calls a strike.If a batter gets three strikes,he loses his turn bag and it calls out.A batter also is out if he hits the ball in the air and opposing pleasure catch them.But,if the batter hits the ball and it is not caught.The batter tries to run or more before the ball on the base field.The batter can run to all four bases.If he hits the ball over the fence or out of the ball park. Such ahead is called a home run.

A person who strikes out or goes down swinging attempt something but failed.We also might tell the person that three strikes and you are out.But someone who hit a home run or hit 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 bed if someone doing an extremely good job and it is very successful.You might say he or she is begging one thousand.If I say i want to touch with you,I would talk to you from time to time about something we planned to do.I might say I touched all the bases if I did some what is neccesary to complete a job or activity.And if I covered my bases,I was well compared.

However, someone who is we all space did something wrong or maybe dishonest or immoral.A person with strange ideas might be described as out of last failed.That is to 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 similar or a ball park estimate.If someone offers me amount that is chose to my selling price,i might say the amout is in the ball park.However if I say we are not in the same ball park,I meaning we can't agree because my ideas are too different from yours.Finally when the situation changes completely,we say that is a whole new ball game.
