  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Idioms 237. The idiom. today is on the ball. Okay. Let's

  • take a look at the note here. If we say that someone is on the ball , we mean that

  • he or she is alert and ready to deal with or take action with something. Right.

  • away. We often feel that a person who is on the ball is prepared and can notice

  • quickly something that could be a problem and how to take care of it or

  • what to do in order to avoid problems. Let's go on. The origin of this phrase

  • is believed to originate from sporting events. It is believed to be a shorter

  • version of ' keep your eye on the ball.\" Which is advice given in many sports.

  • Yeah. Keep your eye on the ball. You know, watch out as the ball is coming and you

  • know, something like that. This idiom was found recorded in many sports including

  • golf, cricket, croquet , and baseball. Most believe baseball may be the origin. Let's

  • continue. Here's some examples that cover this. I need someone who is on the ball

  • to watch out for any issues in trying to close this deal. Okay. So try to finish

  • off the deal, they want someone just in case they try to sneak something into

  • the contract. Or you know, if they're trying .. or the other side is trying to

  • do something sneaky. They want someone who's on the ball to catch that. All right.

  • Number two. It is a good thing you reminded me to watch out for that. You

  • are really on the ball. Yeah. A lot of times when somebody reminds you of

  • something that, that if they didn't do, it could have been a problem. So thanks for

  • being on the ball. Well you're on the ball. Good it's good thing that you thought of

  • that. We often say it that way. Or let's look

  • at number three. The reason you didn't notice this problem coming is because

  • you were not on the ball. You weren't alert. You weren't paying attention.

  • All right. I hope you got it. I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
