A slang term, rarely used nowadays, for a home run in baseball. Interchangeable with dinger, bomb, and homer, although "homer" is easily the most common term from baseball announcers and fans alike.
According to Merriam-Webster on-line, the term "tater" may have originated in the Negro Leagues of Professional Baseball early in the 20th century, where a home run was called a potato or long potato.
