shortstop, a pop fly, Lucky Seven, home run, center fielder

On Sept. 30, 1885, the Chicago White Stockings (now Chicago Cubs) were playing in a championship game.
A pop fly hit by a batter in the seventh inning was carried by a strong gust of wind and turned into a game-winning homerun. That was the beginning of the term Lucky Seven.

pop
Baseball. To hit a short high fly ball, especially one that can be caught by an infielder: popped out to shortstop.




shortstop 

Pronunciation: /ˈʃɔːtstɒp/ 



NOUN

Baseball
fielder positioned between second and third base:hacked a ball to shortstop
仔細想想,棒球中的游擊手這個位置,真是天才設計。沒有這個設計,棒球會變得攻守不平衡。但是這個原稱shortstop(短截),防守為主的位置,不知何以當初引進野球的日本人卻翻譯成攻擊味道的「游擊」(遊擊,是清代軍職名)。
