line drive(redirected from a line drive)
In baseball, a ball that is hit hard and travels low to the ground in a straight line. The batter hits a line drive straight back to the first baseman, who makes an easy catch for the first out of the inning. And it's a line drive right up the middle! Bases loaded for our boys in blue!
