, a Texas leaguer
is a fly ball
that falls untouched to the ground between the nearest infield
er and outfield
er for a base hit
The Texas leaguer is differentiated from a typical base hit by trajectory; the Texas leaguer is hit high and generally stays in the air for a good time, while the base hit, which also lands between the infield and outfield, is hit on a lower trajectory, harder, and falls faster.
The name itself comes from the Texas League, a Class AA minor league.
