Stop Major League Baseball's In-Game Rule Changes

We understand that all sports must evolve with the changing times, but there are proposed rules would directly impact the in-game action. The most recent of these proposed rule changes are the "Extra Inning Rule" in which a baserunner would start on second base, the "No-Pitch Intentional Walk," and raising the strike zone.

Not only do these in-game rules drastically alter the sport we love, but it completely devalues those of us who consider ourselves "diehard" fans. There is a strong push to grab a new market, but Major League Baseball risks losing its core fans by catering to those on the fringe.

We implore Major League Baseball to stop making tweaks to the in-game action that would potentially determine the outcome of the game, as well as create unintended consequences that would trickle down to game strategy and roster construction (in one case, the importance placed on players who can execute a bunt).

For many of us, the sport of baseball resides on revered ground. Please help us protect it.
