In the spirit of Opening Day, we’ve taken a look at some of baseball’s most uniquely unusual terms. If you’ve ever watched a game on TV or listened on the radio, you may have heard the announcer weave an audible tapestry that, to the untrained ear, sounds like a bunch of nonsense.

The thing is, a lot of baseball nomenclature sounds good enough to eat. See if you can guess these ridiculous food-related baseball terms.
