Answer:  HIT HIS STRIDE

(So, why hasn’t homerun made its way to being a compound word yet?  Is there like some kind of dictionary board where someone can submit a word for inclusion to the compound club?  Is it a pay to play kind of deal, or what?  Hey readers!  I know there are still a few of you left.  See what you can find on this issue, and get back to me.  Will ya?

Guess what, boys and girls?  We have a brand new clue word today, in “tirade”!  It’s the first new clue word in a few weeks.  Our good buddy, ralis95, can add this to his world famous clue word database.  Plus, all of today’s jumbles are coming up as new.  I particularly liked “dirtea”, and I’m guessing it’s because it hid a new clue word.  There was nothing obvious about the answer letter layout.  It was a very commendable jumble.  It was the setup of the clue/question, the cartoon and its dialog, that made the answer a piece of cake for me.

A bare bones kind of baseball cartoon today.  A very generic looking baseball team, with minimal detail.  I did like what appears to be a bat rack and the on-deck circle, by the one coach.  So far, the boys of summer would settle for some non-winter weather.  We are about three weeks behind schedule, with temps and lack of rain.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Apropos of your pictures: bench-clearing season is here. Yuupeee! I hate hockey fights, for they seem staged, senseless, and often brutal. But a big bad brawl in the ballpark, well that’s entertainment. Cheers

    I don’t think many ball fans know that “home run” is not a compound word.

    Considering that baseball has been around since the 1880s, it should have been one word by now.

    Maybe we can start a petition !
