Major League Baseball To Explain New Rule
PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) — Baseball’s new guidelines regarding home plate collisions are being released today. MLB executive vice president Joe Torre made the revelation Sunday after wrapping up a series of meetings to discuss expanded replay with the 15 teams that conduct spring training in Florida.
The former New York Yankees manager said a memo is coming out that is “pretty cut and dried at this point in time. Torre says if nothing else baseball wants “to eliminate those very vicious hits where you target the catcher as opposed to home plate.”
