Experimental Rule Change - Stealing First Base

Recommended Posts

Here's another question - what if the batter starts to go, realizes the ball didn't get far enough away, and changes his mind? Tough shit for the batter? I don't see this rule making it to MLB.

Lol like can he go back to home plate and if he gets back safely he can resume his at bat? That sounds so stupid that it might be comedy gold.

Was there a recent one? I love those movies but it seems like forever since the last one.

A couple I believe. Within this decade anyways.

If he gets back to home safely, is it a run?!

It was in 2017.  There's reportedly more on the way.

Yeah, but they lose a run if he is out. Really puts pressure on the batter to make the right decision as far as go for the extra run while risking a run to come off the board.

And yes this will result in negative scores.
