In baseball people are always trying to make the game better, and run smoother. Over the years, people are constantly thinking about the rules and how to improve them. I found an article about with some of the 2020 rule changes in Major League Baseball and you can click here to read it.
I thought that this article was very interesting. Tony Clark is the executive director of the Players Association. He attended a meeting after one of the Tigers and Red Sox game to discuss rule changes with other important people.
Tony Clark states, “I think the common ground that we were able to find here has cracked open a door to a broader conversation, and that broader conversation we believe is necessary and in the best interests of both parties.”
This article also has some of the rules that changed from 2019 and the rules that will soon change in 2020.
I think it it very interesting that in 2020, through August 31st, the active roster will increase from 25 to 26 players, and in September, the teams will be required to have a 28-man roster. The amount of players in the dugout and able to play, is a huge thing in baseball, and this could change the game.
This article also said that teams must designate players as either position players, or a pitcher. Only designated pitchers will be allowed to pitch the first 9 innings of the game. On the contrary, a position player can only pitch if his team is ahead or behind by 6 runs. This is huge. In some games the teams run out of pitchers because they use everyone in their bullpen. These teams then have to go to some of their position players. I’m wondering, what will happen if neither team is ahead by 6 runs, and they are out of pitchers?
There are a few more rules listed, and you can check them out here.
Please leave comments below on what you think about some of these rule changes!
Hello bloggers! The Washington Nationals surprised a lot of people this year and won the World Series in 7 games! Check out an article that I read about their victory here.
This is a really great article. It has some interviews and quotes of the players and coaches from the Nationals, from after the game. It has some stats of some of the greatest pitchers in the game right now. Max Scherzer, Stephen Strasberg, Anthony Rendon, and the 21 year-old Juan Soto all came into clutch for the team.

There are many rules in the game of baseball, and some of them are very complicated. I am only going to share with you some of the main rules of baseball.
For hitters, three strikes on them and it is called a strikeout, and the hitter is out. If the hitter hits the outside of the white foul ball lines, the ball is foul, and the hitter gets another chance.
After the ball is hit, the players on the field can catch the ball before it hits the ground, and it is called a fly out. The players on the field can also tag the runners with the ball in their glove, before they reach the base to get them out. While their are runners on base, if the batter hits the ball an it hits the runner, then the runner is out. If there are two runners on base, and the hitter hits a fly ball into the air, in the infield, it is called an infield fly rule, and the batter is out.
There are 3 outs per half inning, and a total of 9 full innings. This means that a total of 54 outs are made in a full game. 27 outs have to be made by each team. If the teams have the same amount of runs after 9 innings, they can go into extra innings.
Well, those are a few of the rules of baseball. There are probably hundreds more, but I hope you enjoyed learning about the great sport of baseball.
Hi everyone! I am going to be testing some HTML code.
First of all, make sure you are in the Text setting instead of the Visual setting.
To bold a word, put the word in between the code <b> </b> For example, if you type <b>Baseball</b> the word will appear Baseball.
To italic a word, put the word in between the code <i> </i> For example, if you type <i>Chicago</i> the word will appear Chicago.
To underline a word, put the word between the code <u> </u> For example, if you type <u>World Series</u> the word will appear as World Series.
To make a word have more than one type of code, just add it to the outside of the other code. For example, if you want to bold, underline, and italic the words Major League Baseball just type <u><b><i>Major League Baseball</i></b></u> and the words will appear as Major League Baseball.
I hope that you now know how to use some simple HTML.
Hello! I’m going to share with you how do write a quality comment.
Commenting is a great way to communicate with people that are far away, and is it good to write quality comments back to them. The way you comment can define you as a hard thinker or as a lazy person.
When you comment, you should want the person you’re commenting to feel good, and feel encouraged to write more. It is a great idea to write anything that you like about their blog, like their theme, or their page setup. Your comment should have a positive tone.
I also recommend to provide some feedback to the person that you think would improve their blog. When you give suggestions for their blog, make sure not to sound bossy or rude, but helpful.
Lastly, grammar is really important to a comment, and really anything you write up. With today’s technology, spell check is almost always available, and is a very useful tool. Always proof read your comments before you publish them to the public.
I hope you know have a better understanding of how to write a good quality comment!
