[12/14/2013] Amateur baseball rules to change, no fake pickoffs to third

by on Dec.15, 2013 @ 1:00 am, under College, High School, Industrial

The Baseball Federation of Japan's Amateur Baseball Rules Committee met on Thursday.  Among the issued discussed were the following two rules:

  • Beginning next season, fake pickoff throws to third will not be allowed since they tend to border on being balks.
  • White, gray, or similarly colored gloves will not be allowed.  This rule is already in effect at the high school level.  The rule will go into effect at the university and Industrial League level as well, beginning in 2015.
