Called Shot

Made famous by legendary player Babe Ruth, a called shot refers to a batter who points out the trajectory of his shot while at-bat. In the fifth inning of the 1932 World Series Game 3, Babe Ruth gestured that he would hit a home run at a specific part of Wrigley Field. This now refers to a move by any batter who predicts the path his flyball will take.
