blooper

1. In broadcast TV, an error that is omitted with a "bleep" or "bloop" sound. I heard there was a bad blooper on tonight's newscast—what happened?
2. An error or mistake. Sometimes, especially in film or TV, humorous bloopers are compiled and shown at the end of the program. Uh yeah, hanging up on the boss is usually a blooper. Honestly, the bloopers from that show are funnier than the show itself.
3. In baseball, a pitch that is not hit very hard and, as a result, travels just past the infield. Smith hit a blooper just past second base that allowed the runner to score.
4. In baseball, a pitch that is thrown poorly, often higher than is desired. And that blooper was ball four, so the batter is headed to first base.
