The Japan Baseball Rules Committee announced a number of revisions to the Official Baseball Rulebook.  Among them:

  • In an effort to cut down on balk calls and wasted time, pitchers will not longer be allowed to make fake throws to third base.
  • All defensive players, instead of just pitchers, will not be allowed to use lightly colored gloves that might make it difficult to see the baseball.
