    From Roger Miller's You Can't Roller Skate In A Buffalo Herd Lyrics.

    You can't go a-swimmin' in a baseball pool.
    So I googled the baseball pool, all the pictures are actually of pools. So I don't understand why you can't swim in a pool?
    Thank you.

    Roger Miller was famous for his whimsical lyrics. It doesn't pay to look for meaning.

    Some of the pictures are of pieces of paper divided into squares. Those are the pools you're looking for.
