Question:explain the two meanings of the sentence "Danny hit the man with the baseball bat."
Danny (a person's name) Hit (to come in contact with) the man (male form of a human being) with the baseball (a game played with a bat and ball between two teams of nine players each on a large field having four bases that mark the course a runner must take to score) bat (a usually wooden implement used for hitting the ball in various games)!

It could either mean that Danny had a baseball bat which he used to hit the man. Or, Danny hit a man who had a baseball bat.
