The Visual Thesaurus Crossword Puzzle: September Edition

As the Major League Baseball season comes to a close and the postseason warms up, we've got a baseball-themed crossword this month. Figure it out and you could win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt!

To solve this puzzle, you must also figure out a word chain. Here's how it works: the crossword relies on how the Visual Thesaurus links from one word to another to form a chain of synonyms. Use the Visual Thesaurus word maps to figure out how one step links to the next. You'll find that the first and last steps in the chain, when taken together, form a term used in baseball.

Think you can figure it out? Once you've solved the puzzle, submit the eight links in the chain by clicking here and you'll be entered to win a Visual Thesaurus T-shirt! In the body of the message, please include the eight links, the writer's name, your mailing address, and your preferred T-shirt size. Ten winners will be selected at random. Deadline is October 18, 2013. Have fun and good luck!
