flied

verb; derivation
baseball term referring to what happened to a batter during his previous at-bat if he was called out by hitting a pop-fly. Used in conjunction with “out”. Reason used: the proper past tense version of “fly” is “flew”, but this loses the baseball connotation when followed by the word “out”. So, “flied” was created to maintain the baseball reference. Example sentence: The player flied out during his last at-bat, so this time he’s going to focus on hitting a grounder.
