Fun Fact June 2, 2021.

Do you have all your bases covered? Most likely an uniquely American idiom, coming from the world of baseball.  In the game, it’s up to the players on the field to make sure all the bases are being watched so the other team doesn’t try to steal.  In general it means to be cautious and cover all possibilities in a given situation, plan or endeavor. To be aware of all consequences and be prepared for them as best as possible.  The earliest reference occurs in the 1950’s but didn’t become widespread until the 1960’s.  Here’s hoping you have all your bases covered.  Thanks to Lisa who suggested this via text direct and connect.
