We shall call this new MLB rule the Buster Posey rule

The discussion about this started a few years ago with Buster Posey getting injured at a home plate collision. It was the starting point in discussion whether or not a rule change should be made.

Everybody had an opinion as to whether or not collisions should be allowed at home plate. I felt that the play was legal but there had to be some kind of consideration. I didn’t think that collisions should be banned, but maybe the catchers had to be in a certain position?

What would be the punishment if this rule is broken? Does the run come off the board? A fine? Suspension?

This is a major change for baseball and I doubt this will go over well with everybody.


One thought on “We shall call this new MLB rule the Buster Posey rule

  1. I prefer to call it the Scott Cousins Rule; after all, it was his callousness and stupidity that makes this rule necessary. I hope he never sees the majors again.
