Throwing the ball around vs Batter routines
Posted by Old Timers on May 3, 2022, 11:23 pm
Recently the condensed games had several references to the rule about balls being called if an infield throws it around after an out.
How on earth did that become a rule when so, so many batters have ridiculously long pre-swing rituals which many repeat during an at bat?
If the goal is to speed up the game cracking down on the batter's superstitions would have much more impact.
