What does it mean?

Home run

In the world of baseball, the term ‘Homer’ is commonly used. It’s a fun way of saying a home run. When a player smacks the ball so far it goes over the fence, that’s called a Homer.

But, it’s not just about hitting the ball out of the park. A Homer can also be an inside-the-park home run. That’s when a player manages to hit the ball, run around all the bases, and make it back to home plate without any errors happening.

There are many different slang terms for home run. These include words like tater, bomb, and dinger. But Homer is probably the most commonly used and recognized. It’s sort of like a short form of home run, which is often abbreviated as HR.
