The baseball whipped by Ned twice. Each time, a strike was counted, but Ned knew that it was impossible for him to get out with the next pitch. How is this possible?

Sorry - don't follow baseball and the answer makes no sense to me.

thought he had already watched the first pitch, so those were strikes 2 & 3 (thus he couldn't get out on the next pitch as he was already out.....)

Knew he wasn't the batter. Wasn't sure who he was.

I thought Ned was the catcher and had not caught the first two pitches and watched them go by. Or he could be the umpire. Either way he can't get "out" on the next pitch because he's not batting.

Because of these variations, I did want to put this in the situation category, but it ended up in trivia- the eds know better than we do, so...

I got the teaser wrong but the hint was very helpful.

the riddle was sort of confusing.
my friend and i both couldn't figure it out. the wording implied that Ned was at bat. it said, "...get out..." when it should say, "...get AN out..". i suggest revising it for future readers. just a suggestion. other than that one part it was cool!

I am not a fan of baseball so there was no way I could have gotten this one. Good Job.
