jackky: Baseball8217s Worst Rule is Dead

Baseball8217s Worst Rule is Dead

Aug 14, 17 om 12:12
11 days ago, I wrote about baseballs new definition of a catch, and just Salomon Speedcross 4 Mujer how the interpretation from the rule created some ridiculous problems for baserunners on fly balls towards the outfield. Applying the transfer rule in the infield towards the outfield was an unmitigated disaster, and simply made the game worse. In that piece, I gue sed that, due to the slow pace of alternation in MLB, we'd need to live with the rule for the rest of the year, and return to sanity in 2015.In reality, though, we simply had to live with the rule for all those last Salomon Speedcross 3 Hombre 11 days, because based on Ken Rosenthal, MLB has already reversed course and also the old definition of a catch will return to MLB prior to tonights games. Starting Friday night, umpires will rule on catches the way they did in the past, using more of a common-sense approach instead of following a letter of the law, according to major-league sources.A catch, forceout or tag will be considered legal if a fielder has charge of Salomon Speedcross 3 Hombre the ball in the glove, but drops the ball after opening his glove to transfer the ball to his throwing hard, sources said. Will no longer the fielder be required to succe sfully get the ball into his throwing hand.This may be the only reasonable meaning of a catch, and kudos to MLB for Salomon Speedcross 3 CS Mujer fixing this so quickly. They arent exactly known for swift action or reasonable timelines on obvious decisions, however it took them just Salomon Speedcross 3 Mujer one month to understand they'd designed a mistake and reverse course on their error. For as much grief as MLB got for changing the rule to begin with, they deserve credit for fixing it within an unexpectedly quick fashion. I do wish we'd have experienced someone try the drop the ball on purpose play, though. Well i gue s.
