Hi,

What does this sentence mean?

I have to bat out a term paper before class.

Which is the right meaning?

1.
I have to produce a term paper before class. (I have to finish a term paper, the one who says this sentence is a student)

2.
I have to produce a term paper before class. (the one who says this sentence is a teacher, he/she has to produce a term paper for the test)


Thanks a lot
