Swing for the fences

Pops McGinty told his players to swing for the fences.
So, they do. And the team lost. A lot.
Twenty-seven pop-ups and fly outs, easily snagged by the outfielders.
There were a few dropped balls here and there, but mostly easy catches.
So, Pops McGinty clarified his earlier statement: swing for over the fences.
“Oh, now you tell us,” said his players.
And they hit the most home runs of any team ever.
In fact, the only way to get any of them out was to intentionally walk them, and then pick them off as they stood around first base.
