Baseballs new rules

Baseball's New Rules

I started to watch baseball again since the World Series is

starting but I have noticed that there are a couple of new rules in

the game that were not there last year and I am not the only one

who does not like them.

I can tell that most of the die hard baseball fans do not like

the new rules in baseball because of all the bad things I have heard

on the TV or seen in the newspaper.

I have only seen two new rules being used since I have been

watching and one new rule everyone hates is that if you do not like

the call the umpire has made on you, you can spit in his face and

not get suspended. If you do not believe me just ask Roberto

Alomar of the Baltimore Orioles he tried the new rule out and was


Another new rule of the game of baseball that was not there

last year is that if you are sitting in the stands you can reach over

the wall and catch the ball before the players can. This new rule

was first tried out at a New York versus Baltimore Orioles game,

when New York was at bat and they needed a home run to win.

The batter hit the ball not far enough to the wall and when the out

fielder was going to catch it a kid reached over the wall and caught

the ball. This would be usually ruled no home run but the umpire

said it was OK. New York went on to win the next game to

advance to the World Series. The fans in New York made the little

boy a hero for a day and loved him for what he did but most of the

other baseball fans all over the country did not think it was fair to

the Orioles.

In conclusion I do not like the new rules of the game and

hope the commissioner of the league will change them for next
