Geocache Description:

Baseball and softball are always fun to watch games. Please remember to bring a pen for this adventure.

Baseball Lingo, is what baseball players and fans all know as baseball-talk or baseball jargon, which some what like mathematics, has become a universal language, recognized, understood and used routinely around the baseball world!

The boys of summer use it profusely. The crowd out at the ballpark hear baseball talk and terms which makes baseball seem like a festive live wire account of life being lived to the fullest.

The knowledge of the baseball terms and terminology used by players and fans will add so much to your enjoyment of the game.

Speaking of baseball-talk this ball players language deciphered as baseball vocabulary, loosely used as baseball action defining jargon or terminology, in the same context is quite an interesting thought.

Knowing the baseball lingo is grand but the bottom line concern for many of our younsters is the question of how to play baseball and then too knowing the difference of benefits and features between the argument of aluminum vs wood bats also becomes part of our learning curve.

Learning about baseball is fun and exciting like learning this sometimes strange new world of baseball lingo.

Baseball jargon or if you will baseball chatter between players out there on the ball diamond is a baseball lingo unto itself and is a language study of its own.

Those baseball ballparks stretching across America has not only baseball lingo we know as baseball talk there is also a decided piece of Americana busting out all over up in those ballpark grandstands and bleachers where we find quite a din of ballpark lingo.

This language of terms and vocabulary used in baseball-talk has had a significant impact also on the usage and definitions so commonly used and universally understood in communication by the every day world.

So, it's a great idea for you to learn to translate this strange baseball language, that is, if you hope to be one of the baseball insiders, who can walk the walk and most of all... talk the talk!.

Little brother, in his knee britches, with all of his jabbering probably had a pretty good fix on some good baseball jargon if only we could have understood what he was saying.

Baseball jargon is another form of baseball talk, chit chat, jovial communicating, and all that other chatter and talk going on out there on the baseball diamond and around the ball park.

Do you know the difference between a "foul ball" and a "chicken on a roll?" Maybe you know a "goose chase" is not a "goose pimple." Did you know a "Home Run" is a "Round Tripper?"

With a click here Diamond Talk Quiz is available to enjoy while I give you a little pep talk about the processes to help you with your learning program.

You have been provided here for your use a fairly extensive list of baseball lingo with there defining meaning organized in alphabetical vocabulary order so that you can easily find what baseball terms you're looking for and you're off to visit the whiz.!

This listing is not by any means totally complete but it gives you a good start. You will personally add more good baseball lingo information as you enjoy and participate as a real fan and as time goes by. Your return visits here is certainly invited.

I've also provided a Frequently Asked Questions section, which provides answers to some of the game's interesting and intriqueing questions about baseball.
