Mysterious ThiefSituation puzzles (sometimes called lateral thinking puzzles) are ones where you need to ask lots of yes or no questions to figure out what happened in the situation. These are good puzzles for groups where one person knows the puzzle and answers the questions.
I watched as he stole it. He wasn't even sneaky about it. I think he might have forgotten it or something, because he fled the scene without it. Some seemed to support the "crime", and some did not. Nonetheless, he went home without being arrested.
Who is this mysterious man?
HintThe "jury" isn't an actual jury. ;)
AnswerThe man is a base runner on a team in a baseball game.
He stole a base, then ran to the next base without taking the base with him, of course. Half of the crowd was cheering (in this case, supporting) because they are on the team of the base runner. The opposing team's fans are not supportive of the steal. The man went HOME (to HOME plate) without being arrested, of course.
