How to use first base in a sentence?

  1. John Nogowski:

    I’ll never let any man talk to me like that. I’m not scared of anyone. Hitters get on first base and do the macarena when they get a broken-bat single. I don’t say anything. If he has a problem with it, I’m right here. I’m 60 feet, 6 inches away.

  2. Alex Verdugo:

    Off the bat, I knew I hit it well, but the ball just kept carrying, i was fortunate enough to get it over the fence. The thought process behind that at-bat was the at-bat before I chased an offspeed pitch and hit it weakly to first base. My goal was just basically let the ball get deep, let it travel and try to stay up the middle as best I could.

  3. Frederick Wilcox:

    Progress always involves risk you can't steal second base and keep your foot on first base.

  4. Erin Moran:

    We had a wonderful softball team because all the boys were very good athletes, ron Howard played right field. Scott Baio was a wonderful first base. Garry Marshall, he loved softball and played first base on a lot of the games. And I had a uniform with my own mitt with my name on it and my own bat! And we played so much softball. It kept the cast together. I don’t know if we would have survived if we didn’t have that softball team.

  5. Jesse Winker:

    If they throw [ Wantz ] out, it stops, if Andrew Wantz hits me and they eject Andrew Wantz, I go to first base. If the guy in the cast and their manager don't talk, nothing happens. But they were talking, and I didn't want to talk.READ : Mass brawl overshadows Angels win over the Mariners.
