nice pun

he doesn't need the ball, he just has to strike the wall or door 3 times. 3 strikes and he's out.

Similar one, no door, no ball, no bat, a calendar and a table. Interested?

Maybe he should actually use the baseball bat to make loud enough knocks on the steel door for someone on the outside, who has a key, to hopefully hear the knocks and let him out!!!

isn't he playing by himself??

I thought somebody just let him out.

i only got that one because someone else suggested it as an answer to another teaser, which asked how you would get out if you were in a car and the keys were outside...

actually you still wouldn't get out but i hated it anyway

theoretically, since there is only ONE steel door that is locked, doesn't that imply that there is another one that ISN'T locked? and who says there isn't a hole in the wall?

Wow, nowadays these teasers have to be extremely specific. I think that he threw the baseball at the wall and it bounced, so he didn't need another person playing with him.

i figured he unlocked the door. think...usually when a door has a lock the lock is on the inside of the room so the person inside the room can lock it and not have to ask somebody else to lock and unlock it for them. the lock is inside the room, the person is inside the room, the person unlocks it and comes out!
just a theory

I thought there was no ceiling and the walls were very short, so he climbed out.

This is the bad joke police. You are under arrest and may serve up to a life sentence in bad joke jail. You have the right to remain silent. You do not have the right to abstain from using this right.
