It’s time for another edition of Thursday trivia!
Here’s this week’s first question:
With a runner on first and one out, a batter hits a weak pop-up directly to the second baseman. Instead of catching the ball for the out, the second baseman intentionally drops the ball, picks it up and steps on second for the force-out. He throws to first for a double-play.
What’s the call?
If you know the answer, post it here, give us a Tweet or find us on Facebook.

Practice is serious business. It’s where good baseball players become great baseball players.
Ask any big-time baseball player, and they’re not going to tell you that they were born with a .400 average and top-notch fielding skills. They had to work for it.
Practice is serious. And if you’re going to get serious about practice, you’ll need a serious batting jersey.
Look no further than Mizuno’s Adult Premier Piped Batting Jersey.
For a limited time, you can take $5 off the $24.99 retail price. That means you can get a Mizuno batting jersey for $19.99.
