Hope you’re all having a great evening
I was looking through some things and I saw a video about the unwritten rules of baseball come up, and it got me thinking: How Many People Buy Into These?
The one I wanted to bring up here was bunting to end a no hitter — I’m talking IRL, not in this game.
I’ve never understood this, because the fact of the matter is this - players are being payed to win. If a pitcher is dealing and a bunt is the best way to break up the momentum, why not do it?
The batter should not be required to aid the pitcher in any way. If a player is going for the cycle, and they hit a ball into the gap needing a triple, should the cutoff man let the runner get to 3rd in order for him to “have his place in history?”
