Questions about example sentences with, and the definition and usage of "America"

The meaning of "America" in various phrases and sentences

Q: What does "America's Pastime is at bat for DirecTV's New UHD Channel" mean?
A: This sounds like a title for a news article.

"America's Pastime" is baseball. This is just an affectionate name we have for it.

"At bat" is a term Americans use to mean "in support of." If you "go to bat" for something, you are like a baseball player holding a bat. You are supporting, defending, fighting for your team. (Americans use lots of sports metaphors.)

Example: "He went to bat for his coworker who was being unfairly blamed for the loss of the account."

DirecTV's is a cable TV network who is starting a new (sports?) channel called UHD.

So the title is saying that baseball (here they appear to mean professional baseball leagues) are "at bat" (in support of) DirecTV's new UHD channel (which appears to be a sports channel from the context of the title.) My guess is that professional baseball leagues stand to make money off of this new channel, so they are supporting it.

A: Use "slurping while eating" for the first time. Then for the second ("slurping", not "slapping", I assume) and third times, just use the verb 'slurping' directly, as it can be implied that it's while eating.

With that and a few small changes:
