Patricia asked: Crossword puzzle is all about things with the name of a state in it.


Shallow fly ball that is called by a state's name.


Rick answered: Patricia, thank you for your question.

The term you are seeking is called a "Texas Leaguer."

A Texas Leaguer is a fly ball, hit by the batter, which lands in between an infielder and an outfielder, for a base hit.

Yours in baseball,


Rick
