I know this is not the "correct" answer involving an American sport but:

You went trick or treating and came home to a Halloween party where everyone was wearing a mask.

You are correct that your answer is not the correct answer.

The two masked men are the catcher and home plate umpire in a baseball (or softball) game.

I disagree with that correct answer.

I'm a baseball fan and any fan would know that the home plate umpire (and sometimes the catcher) removes his mask as soon as a ball is hit. As a result, any plays at home plate will involve unmasked men.

My Halloween trick-or-treat answer is correct.

That is the correct answer in my book.

Not if the baseball player hits a home run.
