No, the umpires are finally getting it right and stopping teams like FL and Vandy from teaching batters to constantly get hit on purpose.
It's commonly referred to as the "Kentucky Rule" around here because of Ken - stick your elbow out - tucky from a few years back. Yes, we joke about Scotty Wingo being a magnet back in the day, but UK guys would take an IB type outside pitch in the middle of the back.

Yeah, I remember a few KY players doing the same thing. Pretty much all 3 of those programs were bad at abusing it before the rules changed.

I agree with you there then, I thought you were talking about trying to avoid it at all cost. If a pitcher throws in my batter box, i'm taking the hit and getting on base.

Haven't watched must baseball because frankly watching it on the tube is boring to me. Now getting out and going to the park is a good time don't get me wrong fam. I did however watch a portion of this game and I tell you that guy throwing himself into our 3rd baseman and getting g a run for it is as stupid as a lot of the basketball jumping into a defenseless defenders body calls pure sham and should be thrown away.
