I found someone explaining ' sneak a peak' as ' to preview what you are about to see', then does the following sentence mean to preview a baseball game?

You can sneak a peak at a ballgame while studying chemistry.

    It's an odd sentence, although I guess you're referring to glancing at a television while you're studying. And the expression is to sneak a peek.


    English-United States
    A "sneak peek" is usually a preview. They use it when they show a movie that is not in theaters yet. To "sneak a peek" is to glance at something like Copyright said. In your sentence, the person is studying chemistry but is also looking at the baseball game every so often.
