Re: Homerun vs 4 Base Error
Seems like they should just make a rule that if its within 10ft of the fence (give or take) the fielder shouldn't even try to hustle for it while we are at it. To tell any athlete, who goes hard at all times to lay up on any ball they think they can possibly get to is just insane. If your someone like me that has had it beat into you since birth to go all out or dont play, no way you could possibly make that rule!
At the upper levels, it's not as big as the lower levels. A ending inning HR can turn into a 3 run HR because someone doesnt know how to lay up! All most as crazy as inning ending & outs for HRs in a game where the point is to pitch it slow and hit the sh!t out of it!
