Ben Zobrist, start designing your customized cleats. MLB grants players more shoe freedom.

ATLANTA—Baseball’s shoe police can go home.

Major League Baseball and its owners approved an amendment to the basic agreement that finally loosens restrictions on the design and colors of players’ footwear in games.

Players, such as Ben Zobrist of the Chicago Cubs and Mike Clevinger of the Cleveland Indians, were furious last season that they were being warned and fined by Major League Baseball if their footwear did not adhere to league-mandated rules.

Beats actually doing something about the pace of play, I guess….

Who will be the first player to hit a HR while wearing 6-inch stiletto heels?
