Monday's Riddle: Toss the Pitch...

Hello Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? I'm not a huge fan, but I like to go once in a while. It's always a great time! ; ) ~ F

The Knickerbockers played the pitch, and history flipped the switch. When Cartwright tossed out the ball, he never let momentum fall. His rules revolved around a mound, set inside a diamond ground, and nine are they who hit and run, sliding home just for fun. The Pirate, Haddix, played it right, but the Braves won the night. Do-or-die at Fenway Park, the Sox and Yankees made their mark. So much news that there's been! It's hard to remember what and when. But, there are those who know it all, and they're most likely to make the call. 

What am I referring to?

I gave you a clue!

  1. Oh my goodness this is way outside my comfort zone! I assume you are referring to baseball, and the picture looks as though it might have been taken during the depression – but I have no real idea.

  2. As a Brit I'm only guessing but I think a 'diamond' is a baseball term so my guess like those who have previously commented is also baseball

  3. I am not much into sports but Yankees is a huge in all the sates so I will go with Baseball.

  4. My first thought is baseball. Then I second guess myself. :) But I'll stick with that one. :) Have a good week!

  5. I'm going to get a bit more specific and say umpires.

    1. Hi Bish- this was a great guess! Clever. ;) ~ F

  6. +JMJ+

    Even I can tell that it's baseball! =D

  7. Um... baseball, but something in particular about baseball?

  8. Baseball! Perfectly appropriate for this time of year.

  9. OF course, it's baseball! LOL.

    But I have to admit I was so excited when I read the title... I thought this was going to be a post about losing the "Pitch" as in writing pitches.. LOL. Such a nice dream....

  10. I love the black and white pic.


  11. Excellent guessing Riddlers! The answer has been revealed. ;) ~ F
