MLB Tries iPitch Watch In Spring Training Games

Jesse Dougherty @dougherty_jesse

MLB is at Nationals’ camp today workshopping a new communication device for pitchers and catchers. It would allow catchers to type a pitch call (with location) into a watch that is connected to a watch the pitcher is wearing on the mound. An effort to eliminate sign-stealing.

* Computers do not always work as expected.
* The r.f. spectrum at ballparks is congested already.
* Catcher’s wrist movements could tell via high-resolution camera.
* Other unintended consequences.

Universal designated hitter? Possibility of new MLB rules spark conversation

As humans, a lot of us hate change. As baseball fans, well—some want to embrace change and others (like me) feel like you shouldn’t mess with the game of baseball ... much.

Without a doubt, Rob Manfred is considering every one of the rule changes proposed in this article.
