Stealing First Base


Well-known member
This will be a new thing in some minor leagues this/next year. If not familiar-a batter can attempt to reach first base on a wild pitch or passed ball anytime during an at bat.

I personally think it is a dumb thing to get started. I doubt if it impacts a game at the higher levels of play that much. Wonder how that would be scored?

Think it will catch on and be used in high school/college anytime soon?

It would be crazy at the little league or younger levels!!

It better never come down to the lower levels, and it is just a gimmick at the professional level.
