But it's also taught us that while baseball is beloved all over the world, not everyone calls it "baseball."

Sure, there are some languages that simply borrow the word wholesale -- "baseball" in French is simply "le baseball" -- but this doesn't happen all the time. Take the quiz below to see how much you know. You'll see the language first, and all you have to do is click its word for "baseball." (In languages that use a non-Latin alphabet, the word has been transliterated.)
