The answers to today’s Strands, game #73, are…

  • MOUND
  • BASE
  • PLATE
  • DUGOUT
  • INFIELD
  • STANDS
  • BULLPEN
  • SPANGRAM: BALLPARK

  • My rating: Easy
  • My score: Perfect

I’ve never played baseball, because here in the UK we play cricket instead. However, I’ve seen enough US movies and TV shows that I had the knowledge I needed to easily solve this edition of the NYT’s Strands puzzle.

The task was made easier by the word MOUND standing out so prominently, and that combined with the theme clue of American pastime set me on my way. None of the other answers caused me any trouble at all and I solved this Strands game in super-quick time. I doubt too many people will be troubled by it at all. 

How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
