Baseball GameLogic puzzles require you to think. You will have to be logical in your reasoning.
Five friends (Bobby, Isaac, Isabel, Mimi and Shane) are participating in a baseball game with some other people. Each friend plays a different position (First base, Pitcher, Shortstop, Catcher, Right field) and makes a different number of hits (1,2,3,4 or 5). From the clues can you figure out who did what?
1) Bobby, the furthest from home base, had exactly twice as many hits as the pitcher.
2) The shortstop was tired after getting her fifth hit.
3) Shane had more hits than all the other infielders except for Isabel.
4) Isaac wears a mask.
AnswerFrom clue 1 we know that Bobby is the right fielder and that he got 4 hits and the pitcher got 2 hits.
From clue 2 we know that the shortstop is a woman (Mimi or Isabel) and that she got 5 hits.
From clue 3 we know that Shane had 3 hits and Isabel had 5. This means that Isabel is the shortstop (see clue 2).
From clue 4 we know that Isaac is the catcher.
Since we already know that Shane had 3 hits and the pitcher had 2, Shane cannot be the pitcher. The only position left for him is first base, which leaves Mimi as the pitcher.
Now we know everything:
Bobby is the right fielder and he got 4 hits.
Isaac is the catcher and he got 1 hit.
Isabel is the shortstop and she got 5 hits.
Mimi is the pitcher and she got 2 hits.
Shane is the first baseman and he got 3 hits.
