Dream meaning of baseball
Baseball in a dream can have specific symbolism tied to details about playing the game, or general symbolism of games and competition.
You may have personal experience and associations that dreams can use to build a story around.
When analyzing the game of baseball, think in terms of the “game of life” and your efforts to get ahead, both in your outer life and inner life.
Doesn’t matter whether you’ve ever played the game, your dreams can use it as symbolism.
The actions involving the baseball give it tremendous potential for use as symbolism to describe your process of inner development. First, read the entries for Ball and Circle. Now, think of the ball as a goal or target, especially for personal development, and the other details of the dream tie together with that idea.
However, you have more to consider before drawing a conclusion. Baseball can be a great metaphor for the process of becoming a complete person, but the game is rife with other metaphors and analogies, such as: ”Take a swing” means give something a try, or take a risk.
”On base” means incremental progress.
Hitting a home run can mean exceptional performance, and striking out can symbolize failure.
Throwing a ball can symbolize accuracy in hitting a target, meaning a goal or ambition, or the accuracy of thinking processes, comparisons, or assumptions.
Pitching the ball can symbolize attempts to “get one past” another person or group of people, meaning to fool or deceive, to slip by unnoticed, or get past defenses or boundaries. Now put yourself in the shoes of the batter as the ball goes past you, and think about the possibilities it presents for symbolism.
A curveball can symbolize something tricky, difficult, or deceptive.
Notice that each of those examples is a physical representation of a personal situation.
Baseball is used as a sexual analogy. Getting on first base means hugging and kissing. Second base means copping a feel. Third base means close to having sex, but stopping short. Home run is selfexplanatory.
A bat can symbolize something that batters, such as insults and emotionally charged comments.
Also consider inner dynamics such as being hard on yourself (a bat is hard) or beating yourself up.
