Eastern Adams County's Only Independent Voice Since 1887


Last week I talked about some of the changes that were made to the game of baseball in order to speed it up a bit. But I left out a couple of big changes that really need to be mentioned. One of the changes concerns the pitcher when there is a runner on base, mostly first base. The pitcher is now limited to make two throws over to first to keep the runner close especially if he is a base stealer. Now the pitcher can throw over a third time but he needs the first baseman to tag the runner out otherwise it is considered a balk and the runner will advance to second base.

Teams are now not allowed...
