As I get ready to watch tonight's Mariner game against the Angels (on a delay—thank you, modern technology), I'm wrapping up the creation of a new page on Inspired by a conversation I had a while back with friends who are relatively new to baseball, a reference for baseball terminology and lingo is right here for those times when you're watching a game and the announcer seems to start talking jibberish. It might be jibberish—especially if you're watching a White Sox game, Hawk Harrelson is an add one—but more likely it's something you, the aspiring baseball expert, should know.

So bookmark's lexicon for quick answers to things like, "WTF is OPS?" or "why are they talking about canned vegetables?" We're here for you.

The lexicon is far from complete, and any suggestions for additions are welcome. Comment away!

    Love the Lexicon. I know a few people that are new’ish to baseball. This will help a lot.
