MLB sends pace-of-game warning letters to players

Who do you think got em?

MLB officials have begun issuing written warnings to several players who have violated the league’s new pace of game rules.

MLB spokesman Mike Teevan told Perform Media on Wednesday night that fines for violating the rules would begin May 1, but players would have a “grace period” during the first month of games.

“We’re working with the players on this and want to use April to educate them,” Teevan said.

The Associated Press reported that at least 10 letters have been sent, but Teevan would not confirm that number when reached Wednesday night.

The new rules, most notably requiring batters to keep one foot in the batter’s box, are designed to quicken the pace of games, which had an average time of 3 hours, 7 minutes last year.

With 2017 All-Star Game in Miami, Baltimore’s conspiracy theories need re-examining

...So I’m not buying what MLB is selling: the idea that the Orioles’ legal entanglement over Mid-Atlantic Sports Network TV-rights fees with the Washington Nationals and MLB is not at least a contributing factor to their wait to host the All-Star Game again. That just doesn’t ring completely true to me…
