Standart MLBs new slide rule brings crucial clari

The best rules are ones that are clear and leave little room for interpretation. Such rules are the foundation of baseball and the reason the game works.Here are some examples.MORE: Best active player at every age, 21-43Rule 1.05: The objective of each team is to win by scoring more runs than the opponent.Rule Russell Wilson Jersey 5.09(e): When three offensive players are legally put out, that team takes the field and the opposing team becomes the offensive team.Rule 6.04(b): Players in uniform shall not addre s or mingle with spectators, nor sit in the stands before, during, or after a game. No manager, coach or player shall addre s any spectator before or during a game. Players of opposing teams shall not fraternize at any time while in uniform.OK, so the last part of Rule 6.04(b) is never enforced, either in batting practice or when baserunners have conversations with first basemen during games, but the point is that rules should be clear and establish a consistent way that the game is played.The counterpoint is the strike zone, which varies from umpire to umpire based on each arbiters interpretation of the rules and creates more controversy on a daily basis than anything in baseball. Maybe the only thing like it in sports is the NFLs fuzzy definition of a catch, and you see where that leads.Not everything can be cut and dry, of course, because thats just not how things work. There are judgment calls the word judgment appears 73 times in the major league rulebook and that is why there are umpires on the field and not robots. The goal, in those cases, is to get as close as po sible to a set standard, because its best to be consistent in the way the rules are applied.MORE: Jays' Gibbons looked like a Ian Desmond Jersey boob with 'dre ses' comment| 'World needs to lighten up'In that way, Major League Baseballs new rule on slides is a succe s. There already was a rule on the books about runners interfering with double play attempts. Rule 6.01(a)(5) says it is interference when Any batter or runner who has just been put out, or any runner who has just scored, hinders or impedes any following play being made on a runner. Such runner shall be declared out for the interference of his teammate. The new rule, Rule 6.01(j) seeks to clarify that.Under Rule 6.01(j), runners slides are mandated, not only at second base, but on any attempt to break up a double play. The rule states that a runner who initiates or attempts to make contact with the fielder should be called for interference if he does not engage in a bona fide slide.There are four elements to a bona fide slide: beginning to slide before reaching the base, having an ability and making an attempt to reach the base, having an ability and making an attempt to remain on the base and sliding within reach of the base without changing paths for the purpose of initiating contact.The first and last parts of the rule Robinson Chirinos Jersey are concrete. The middle two parts are open to judgment, but especially with replay, its po sible to discern whether an attempt has been made by a runner to reach and remain on the base.MORE: Yankees done in by the rulesOn Tuesday night, Jose Bautista fell short of the requirement to make an attempt to remain on the base. As he slid toward second base, he reached out his left arm Adrian Beltre Youth Royal Jersey toward Rays second baseman Logan Forsythes leg, while also reaching his right arm acro s his body and facing his back to the base. That was the abandonment of the pretense of remaining on the base, so when Bautista clipped Forsythes leg, that contact, combined with the failure to complete a bona fide slide, made interference an easy call.If Major League Baseball did a poor job explaining this to players, that is an entirely different problem, but the rule, as it is written, is delightfully short on gray areas and lets it be known that reckle s play will not be tolerated in a way that the open-to-interpretation previous state of affairs did.Some people, particularly former players, recoil at the notion of baseball becoming soft as a result of this rule. Having watched serious injuries last year to Jung Ho Kang and Ruben Tejada, this resistance is difficult to stomach. Nobody is saying that hard slides arent part of the game. They are.MORE: Utley went for the knees againChase Utleys slide into Derek Norris at home plate on opening day was fine he went for the base and made it a tougher play for the Padres catcher when the play was in question. Utleys slide into Tejada last October is the reason that the new rule is commonly known as the Utley Rule, and he was criticized Cole Hamels Jersey in some circles for not changing his ways when he went hard at Norris, but if anything, he proved that its po sible to still go hard while playing within the rules.What there should be no room for in the rules is players going out of their way to make physical contact and increase the risk of injury. Bautistas play was very low on the spectrum of such contact, but he did make contact and he did fail to make a bona fide slide. The call was right, and the rule works as intended.Tuesday nights incident left Blue Jays catcher Ru sell Martin asking, The next time I go into second base, what do I do? The answer now should be clear: slide into second base. After all, its right there in Rule 1.04: When a batter becomes a runner and touches all bases legally he shall score one run for his team. The objective of the baserunner is to get to the base.
