Here is a helpful list of things for baseball fans to say while you’re in Australia or Down Under.
“G’Day”: A common greeting and is short for “Good Day” as in “Hello”. Example, “G’Day mate”
“Throw another shrimp on the barbie”: No one says that here, no one. We don’t even call it shrimp, they’re prawns!
“A thong”: This is a type of shoe, a flip flop is the same thing except no one calls them that here.
“Bordies”: These are a type of bathers as in the shorts that you wear in the water, you know what shorts are right?
“A snag”: This is just a sausage which we cook on the barbie (see above).
‘Rip snorter”: This just means good as in something is good.
“Beach Cricket”: That’s just cricket played on the beach, cricket is a game we play kinda like baseball but not.
“Spat the dummy”: Someone has thrown a tantrum and has “spat the dummy” most likely a D-Backs fan.
“Footy or football”: This is another game we play also known as “Aussie rules”. It’s not that great but it’s worth a watch. They play it on the SCG (That’s the ground the baseball is being played on).
“Take a punt”: This means to bet on something like the baseball.
I hope this comes in handy for your travels, good luck boys.
