Meh. Larger bases? Negligible effect. Pitch clock? Needed for years. Banning the shift? Beats expecting players with multiyear contracts worth nine figured to lower themselves by learning to bunt or hit the other way. I guess.
Now we need courtesy runners so slow players won’t feel bad about themselves. Any other U-10 girls slo-pitch rules out there that MLB can adopt?
