Catchers Blocking The Plate

Posted on: May 28, 2011 4:43 pm
While I'm very sorry for Buster Posey and I respect him alot, I don't see how he isn't partly to blame for his injury. I never understood why catcher's were allowed/expected to interfer with the base runner's path. No other position players are allowed to impede their progress. It should be outlawed. If only in the interest of sportsmanship. Safety is the cherry.. A tag should be the only human to human contact in the game. Blocking the plate is assanine.
