Homeboard hitter!

Hi!

Is it Friday? Oh yes! :-)

The other day I made a rather huge error hitting in the outfield instead of hitting in my homeboard. Hitting in the outfield (or opponent homeboard) will gain more in the race and you don't risk a direct hit from the bar. Hitting in your homeboard can prevent your opponent from getting an anchor at the risk of a hit from the bar but if missed you may get another board point quickly.

Now I can practice a bit more on this type of situation with the latest training track:

Homeboard hitter! Should you go for that homeboard hit preventing your opponent to anchor up or gain more in the race with an outfield hit instead?



The first position I ran into when trying it out for the first time was rather amusing. So many possibilities and all of them are very tempting! I got that one right but bombed out on the next position so odds are good this one is just as difficult as the previous training tracks! :-)



This is the 97'th training track! Enjoy! :-)
