 08-15-2010 #5 Mr. Hui     Join Date: Mar 2005 Posts: 10,609 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. __________________ Do Math and you can do Anything!

Not if the baseball player hits a home run.

That is the correct answer in my book.
