Baseball Rule Changes

first_imgI will try to explain rule changes that go into effect in major league baseball within the next couple seasons.  The first one is the 3 batter rule.  A manager will no longer be able to use relief pitchers for just a single batter unless it ends an inning.  A relief pitcher must face a minimum of 3 batters.A second change involves one trade deadline.  That will be July 31.  As I understand it, what used to be a trade deadline in August will now just be a roster expansion beyond the 25-player limit.A third rule change reduces the time allowed for commercials between innings.  It may seem insignificant, but even a small change is welcome.  There will be a 5 second reduction in normal games and a 15 second reduction in nationally televised games.A final one that I am going to list deals with allowing a computer to call balls and strikes.  It is not going to be an automatic rule change.  It is being tried out in an Eastern Independent League.  If it is successful, it might become a reality a few years down the road.  I suppose the one we will really notice this year is the relief pitcher rule.last_img read more
