Hi, everybody. Hope you’re having a nice day. We’re back again with part two of my chat with Liz. In this episode, you’ll hear us use quite a few different expressions that come from baseball and are regularly used in spoken American English. We’ll, of course, just as in part one, share our personal experiences with you to illustrate how we use these expressions in our everyday lives.

As I mentioned in the first part of this chat, episode number 61, baseball is considered America’s favorite pastime. And oddly, the sport’s vocabulary has had a profound impact on the English spoken in the United States. I guarantee that by listening to this episode or to part one of our chat, that you will quickly realize how often these terms are used in conversation. If you don’t believe me, just watch some TV. I guarantee you’ll hear some of them.
