So a reminder that I do not make MLB’s rules, MLB does. Here is one that I personally find silly and encourage MLB to eliminate.
Notice that last part there. Players of opposing team. ANY time. While in uniform.
So I find it odd that MLB would PROMOTE such behavior.
So will MLB be promoting things like “Here’s Pitcher X Using Spade Tack!” – of course not.
The rule is silly, but it is a rule. To promote an apparent violation makes no sense.
