What Do You Mean? Isn’t it ALL Gap?
“Hit it to the gap!” is an odd thing for a 10-year old to yell to a six-year old who can barely hold a baseball bat, let alone hit a pitched ball into the space (gap) between the outfielders maybe 200 feet away.
Which there weren’t any, anyways.
Instead, each team had only 4-5 players, consisting of two Dad/Uncles (of which I was one), a couple cousins, and some neighborhood kids.
It turns out that “hit it to the gap” was actually, “hit it to the kid wearing The Gap t-shirt” — who happened to be playing a very shallow shortstop.
