Pirates notebook: Kang’s injury prompts Hurdle to suggest re-examining slide rules | TribLIVE

Jung Ho Kang was injured because he didn’t clear the bag properly.

“By definition, they are legal slides (at second). Is there a way we can change the definition of a legal slide to possibly ensure better safety?” Hurdle said. “We always want to try to find a way to ensure safety to the best of our abilities without taking away from the game. I think we’ve been able to do that at home plate. The amended rule to home plate (collisions) has turned out to be excellent for the game. Those crashes at home plate have gone away.
“(Garagiola) was great in saying, ‘If we were going to write a rule today, what would be some of the thoughts you would have? … It’s a starting point that I know will have traction and momentum moving forward.”
